Every time Thomas gets close to finishing a piece, there's definitely an air of anticipation among the rest of us!. Today he just finished a beautiful classic three stone setting. Platinum is an ideal metal choice for such a piece, as it wears so well. Except for some dings from wear, this ring will very likely look just as it does now a hundred years hence. This ring features a 1.50ct cushion shaped diamond in the center, set east-west and flanked by two pear shapes. Along the shank, .15cts of natural fancy pink diamonds are pavéd. Beneath the center diamond, you can see there is a 'secret' pink diamond set on each side. The client wanted a very dramatic, but also delicate look to the ring, which Thomas accomplished without adding any metal (which would make for a heavier look) by sweeping the prongs that hold the tips of the pear shaped diamonds out from the center of the ring, which you can see from the side view. We took a few photographs of the ring in progress. You can really see into the setting and see the attention to detail in the fabrication in the shots taken before the stones were set.
