Whist creating beautiful classically traditional rings we also love to design and make contemporary rings. We love this unusual emerald engagement ring and diamond wedding band made for a client last year. It features a one carat round emerald set in 18ct yellow gold with a rounded end platinum shank. The 5 mm wide wedding band was channel set with 1ct round brilliant cut diamonds giving a very modern and individual look.

These rings have featured round and oval emeralds however we often think of an emerald as being an “emerald cut” gemstone. The emerald cut was developed especially for emeralds as when they are cut square their structure means the corners are prove to chipping off easily so the octagonal emerald cut made practical sense to gem cutters. We usually set the emerald in yellow gold as it strengthens the richness of the green of the emerald as you can see in this ring and the one below. Using white metals for the setting brings out the blue of the green more, making it cooler on colour tone. Its very individual which colour is preferred. You can compare the colour effects in the two rings just handmade as bespoke commissions in our workshop below:
