Mountain

This platinum ring features a central 0.96ct diamond with four other smaller diamonds on the sides. The sculpting on the flanks was from a very specific design from the client, which took a bit of development to make feasible. Reducing designs to this scale is tricky, as everything has to be sturdy, but stay dainty. We put a lot of time into finding the best diamonds we can. We find getting a good colour is essential as it’s the most noticeable, whereas tiny inclusions are invisible to the naked eye and the cost of a flawless stone is prohibitive for a lot of people.  The quality of the cut isn’t something I’ve ever been able to discern from looking at it. Also getting a stone marginally under the a carat or half carat can sometimes be quite a bit more affordable than just over.
