  • Custom Channel Set Princess Cut Engagement Ring – Surround-a-Sparkle

    There are different ways to view an engagement ring. Many simply look at the ring from one angle only – from the top down. Others appreciate the full circular experience of a ring. They want it to look amazing from all angles…we so get it!

    Custom Channel Set Princess Cut Engagement Ring

    Why choose a channel set engagement ring? Circular sparkle, of course. This recent custom design ring not only dazzles on all sides but the princess cut maximizes the rough cut diamond (and is also more affordable than round brilliant diamonds). A channel set ring also provides clean lines that accentuate the cut of the stone.

    Do you have a channel set engagement ring in mind? Or how about a princess cut ring? Let’s chat.

    Custom design…as unique as your love.

  • The Classic Power of a Three Stone Engagement Ring (2020 Jewelry Trend)

    Did you fall in love with this Radiance Antique Asscher Cut Three Stone Engagement Ring we recently posted on Pinterest? We did too!

    We can create a three-stone engagement ring just like it for you. But first, read about the eternal popularity of the trilogy setting. Is it the right setting for you?

    Don’t need the backstory? Contact us so we can make a three-stone ring like this appear on your hand in no time!

    The Power of the Three Stone Engagement Ring Setting

    Some call it the Meghan Markle effect, but here at our Scottsdale studio, we’ve seen three-stone engagement rings trending for quite a while now. The trilogy setting is a classic setting after all, symbolically representing the eternal nature of love (past, present, future). Three stones can also represent friendship, love and fidelity. This highly customizable ring means you decide what each stone symbolizes. You can also experiment more freely with colored gems, mixing and matching as you see fit.

    The size of each gemstone is also a personal and creative choice when custom designing a three-stone engagement ring. As you’ll see from the gallery of rings below, the 1st and 3rd gemstone may be smaller and serve to enhance the center stone. Or each gemstone may be a similar size, where each gem shares the “center stage.”

    Markle’s ring showcased a cushion cut diamond with two round diamonds flanking it. But the possible combinations are endless, really. Check out the videos below. Note the total effect as the ring rotates, the visual story it creates. The beauty of custom designing your engagement ring? You create the story and we build it for you!

  • Strawberry Pink Engagement Rings – Custom Design Romance

    What do you think when you think pink?

    Most people conjure up images of romance, femininity and all things sweet, like the inside of a strawberry or the blushing of a cheek. The color pink is so distinctly likable, its becoming a popular gemstone choice for more and more brides. Expect the trend to continue in 2020, especially since lab-grown colored gemstones continue to trend.

    Pink lovers tend to love all things romantic and feminine. They prefer summer over winter. They look romantic movies over action flicks. They believe in the power of love and like to wear it proudly. Lovers of pink also like to keep up with trends while not losing an attachment to the past (read: vintage lovers).

    Below is one of our strawberry Radiance gemstones waiting for its home in a custom design engagement ring. Expertly and lovingly cut by our Scottsdale team.

  • Trending in Custom Design – Stainless Steel Jewelry

    On the heels of finishing yet another stainless steel custom jewelry ring design, we must say: we’re impressed with the dazzling end result. The metal is white in appearance which adds a level of urban appeal and vividness.

    Stainless steel in custom design offers several other benefits:

    Affordability. This modest metal is more affordable than gold or silver yet ultra durable.

    Easy maintenance. Stainless steel is a hardy metal and doesn’t require careful attention, like gold or silver. It also outperforms gold or silver when it comes to durability. It’s a powerful alloy that can withstand serious wear and tear. This ultimately means a bigger return of investment.

    Allergy-free. More people are becoming aware of metal allergies. Luckily stainless steel is hypoallergenic and extremely safe to wear.

    According to WGSN (Worth Global Style Network), this modest metal is gaining popularity through “industrial beauty” and “post-nature” designs.
