she came in as a word-of-mouth referral to have me reset her original but dated wedding ring set. (she still has the original hubby so that is fabulous.) as a member of the equestrian enthusiast set, i knew she needed a ring that would stand the test of time and daily wear. horse people are a hardy lot and this new ring is platinum, a noble metal that wears like no other; while it looks delicate the set should stand the test of time beautifully.
the remount is based upon her grandmother’s original wedding set and we used two straight-cut diamond baguettes from her mother-in-law’s earrings. many different diamond shapes presented a challenge in the single combo ring layout. the engagement side of the ring has a round brilliant-cut diamond as the center focus with full-cut diamonds and straight-cut diamond baguettes on either side. the wedding band side of the ring has three graduated marquise-cut diamonds and six full-cut diamonds that are also slightly graduated – whew!
