GS: Deco Sunburst Engagement Ring

A few months ago I did an Earth Day Fair at Harvard and met so many lovely people. Apparently I made a good impression on one of them, because she and her 'soon to be fiance' called me to make their engagement ring! They had family diamonds (one large from her family and 4 small from his family) and wanted to use them.

As for the design, all they knew was they wanted simple and 3 stone. So I decided to go with a clean deco style. And since they were about nature and sustainable, I thought an Art Deco Sunburst would be perfect! If you don't know what I mean by Sunburst, here is a great example in an antique hair comb...




Now, we designed the ring first then I got the family diamonds (which is somewhat backwards from how I normally work, but it took some time to get the stones.) I realized that the small diamonds wouldn't work in a 3 stone ring because the proportion to the center diamond was all wrong. We decided to save the diamonds for the wedding band and go with sapphires.

The center diamond is a .78 ct mine cut and flanked it with faceted Ceylon sapphires, prong set in platinum. And this is what we ended up with...








The sunburst can be seen from the side view, originating from the small diamond.
