The Making of Gavin & Jess' Custom Engagement Ring
See how this intricate 96 diamond engagement ring came to life!
My client Gavin MacMillan, owner of the College Street Bar wanted a unique custom engagement ring. After examining brilliant round diamonds together, he chose a beautiful 1ct center stone. In our design meeting, he described his girlfriend's dream engagement ring. Next, I created 3D digital renderings of this detailed ring. Once he approved the renderings, I cast the ring in three pieces.
With 96 diamonds to set in total, I handcrafted this ring in 3 pieces. First I cleaned and polished the pieces. Then the diamonds were precisely set into the band. Next, I soldered the crossing halo piece onto the band. Once the halo diamonds were set, I soldered the main setting in place. Then center stone was carefully set.
After a final polish, the ring was dipped in platinum. And Voila! This exquisite 3 total carat diamond engagment ring is complete!
Gavin was thrilled to receive his ring, it turned out exactly how he imagined. He proposed and his beautiful (now) fiancee said yes! Congratulations Gavin and Jess!
