Handcrafted Platinum Diamond Eternity Ring:

This platinum eternity ring set with tiny diamonds was designed to be delicate and comfortable when worn. Each diamond is held securely by 4 claws on each side

 

How this platinum diamond eternity ring was made:

The ring was carefully carved in wax using a jewellers saw (piercing saw) and files of various sizes to create the shape needed. From the solid block of wax, the desired ring shape can be created with patience. I often using hot water and some pumice powder at the end to get a really good finish at the end. The better the finish the wax can be the better the platinum casting result you will get.

Once it is cast in platinum the process of polishing begins using files, abrasive papers and polishing mops. The ring is sent to the assay office to be hallmarked.  It is at this stage the diamonds are placed around the ring. The ring is drilled and the claws carved to allow the diamonds to be captured within the platinum eternity ring.

A final polish and the ring is so sparkly!

9ct White Gold Grain Set Diamond Shaped Wedding Ring

9ct White Gold Grain Set Diamond Shaped Wedding Ring

9ct White Gold Grain Set Diamond Shaped Wedding Ring:   

This 9ct white gold wedding ring was created and shaped to sit next to the engagement ring without any gaps. The diamonds have been set in a very traditional grain setting with a milgrain edging creating a very delicate and vintage looking ring.

How were these made:

This wedding ring was designed using CAD/CAM. A resin was made and then cast in 9ct white gold. Once the casting is returned from being tested and hallmarked the ring goes through a process of emery paper and polishing. The ring is then polished by hand, the diamonds set and then the milgrain edge is applied.

Platinum & Diamond Halo Engagement & Wedding Rings

Platinum & Diamond Halo Engagement & Wedding Rings

Platinum & Diamond Halo Engagement & Wedding Rings:

The engagement ring was designed as a complete surprise and is actually part of my blog
How To Sneak Your Engagement Ring Abroad & Propose. Once going through I few design alternatives a halo theme was decided on. I wanted to make the engagement ring a little more unusual and created the band and claws of the ring to almost grow through the halo making this a much more organic design.

Made in platinum and set with a 0.60ct central diamond which is certified FVs1 in colour and clarity.

The wedding ring was designed to sit underneath the halo of the engagement ring. Set with a delicate line of grain set diamonds.
 

 

How were these made:

Each ring was designed using CAD/CAM. The delicate coil setting around the ruby was the most delicate area to file, emery and polish without destroying the detail. Once each piece had been cast, cleaned up, polished and soldered together the rings were hallmarked, and the ruby and diamond set in place using rub over settings.

Handcrafted Platinum Diamond Trilogy Engagement Ring

Handcrafted Platinum Diamond Trilogy Engagement Ring:

 

This handcrafted platinum diamond trilogy engagement ring design came about by a love of a previous commission I had made. As a suprise ring design my client wanted to design a timeless ring which he knew his partner would love. A round brilliant central diamond with two pear shaped diamonds were decided on and a viewing was arranged to choose the diamonds in person. The final design incorperated platinum for its strength, a certified GIA Fvs1 central diamond and Gvs pear diamonds totalling 0.29cts. See which diamonds to choose for more info.

How were these made:

Once some initial pencil sketches were made the ring was then designed using CAD/CAM Rhino Gold. The designs were presented to the client in every angle to appreciate exactly what the ring would look like before it was finished. From the design file, a platinum casting was made which left a rough dull texture. this does not look like the white and shiny metal you see when a ring is presented to you. A slow process of finishing by hand using various grades of emery paper and polish reveals the shiny white metal. As platinum is a much harder precious metal it takes much more work to get it to a polished finish compared to silver or gold. It is at this stage that the handcrafted platinum engagement ring can be sent to the Assay Office to be tested and stamped with a hallmark. With another pre-polish, the ring was then set by hand with the diamonds, with soft sweeping diamond settings this handcrafted platinum diamond trilogy engagement ring will not catch like claw set rings can do and will be very comfortable to wear.

Handmade Infinity Inspired Wedding Rings

Handmade Infinity Inspired Wedding Rings

Handmade Infinity Inspired Wedding Rings:

These two handmade Infinity Inspired Wedding Rings were made out of 18ct white gold and set with diamonds. The brief for me was to create complementing wedding rings which suited both the bride and groom based on the infinity symbol.

The bride’s wedding ring had to be delicate whilst also fit perfectly around the engagement ring. The groom’s wedding ring had to be much chunkier and more masculine with a simpler style of diamond setting.

Although these rings are different and unique they are suitable for each bride and groom whilst making a nice collection of 2 rings.

How were these wedding rings made:

Initially, hand drawn sketches were provided exploring the ideas of incorporating¬†the infinity symbol within the wedding rings. Different versions of diamonds settings were suggested whilst alternative metals finishes also discussed. Each ring was designed using CAD/CAM. The bride to be’s engagement ring was carefully photographed with measurements taken so that a wedding ring that fitted perfectly¬†next to it could be designed. Once the designs were decided on, the rings were cast in 18ct white gold. They were sent to be hallmarked at Sheffield Assay Office. The rings were then be filed, buffed with several grades of emery paper and given a pre-polish¬†before having the diamonds set and a final polish.
