My client and running buddy Val has amazing taste and knows what she likes.  She’s always rocking the coolest outfit - from wildly printed jumpsuits to leather pleated skirts, her style is always on point.  You can’t imagine how excited I was to start working on a brand new custom engagement ring for her!

Val’s original engagement ring went missing a few years ago.  She has a distinct personal style, and she didn’t want to replace her original ring with something too classic.  For Val, we had to create a one of kind engagement ring that was totally unexpected.

We discussed using blackened gold, black diamond pave, and even a boldly hued tanzanite.  We started zeroing in on an oval black diamond with a possibly asymmetrical setting.  Below are our first few rounds of renderings.

We finally decided on a bold architectural yellow gold ring with an east-west set black diamond.  Val loves art history and architecture, so this design spoke to her love of clean lines and a strong aesthetic.  We added sparkle with hidden side stones and tiny diamonds on each prong.

Once the wax was approved by Val, I gave the caster the go-ahead to create this beautiful piece.

What do you think of this black diamond engagement ring?  I love creating nontraditional engagement rings for cool girls who know what they like.  Don’t be afraid to choose something totally different with your engagement ring.  Black diamonds, east west settings, hidden details - anything goes.
