Pave set diamond ring

The Brief:

To design a wide ring using all of our client's diamonds that were all different sizes from some existing rings.

The Process:

This commission started with our client’s yellow gold diamond rings:

Nicholas drew a number of designs to show how the diamonds, that were all of different sizes, could be set in one ring:

Our client liked the simplicity of design A but wanted to see some variations on the design.

Nicholas offered the following:

Diamonds set between bars of white gold

Diamonds pressure set straight into the white gold band

Diamonds channel set between white gold ribs

Our client liked D but chose bead setting, where tiny ‘beads’ of metal are pushed up between each diamond to hold the diamonds in place. And the finished ring is making her very happy.
