Platinum, Sapphire, and Diamond Engagement Ring and Bands

This set was designed exclusively to showcase an exceptional center sapphire. While we just recently added the second wedding band, the plan from the beginning was three pieces as a whole. The bands frame the engagement ring, and the small sapphires accent and focus attention to the center stone. The customer had a very clear vision as to what they wanted the final product to be, and we were more than happy at Custom to accommodate.

Complete Platinum Ring Rebuild and Fingermate Installation

Most jewelry repairs are simple soldering jobs or ring sizings. This one was much more difficult as far as repairs go, and required an almost total Custom ring fabrication. The ring started out as an 18k and platinum diamond engagement ring and the customer wanted it changed to all platinum with a Fingermate adjustable shank. The Fingermate shank allows the ring to open and close so it fits snugly on fingers with large knuckles. The Fingermate brand of adjustable shank tend to be more expensive than the other options, but in our experience we have found them to work far better, for far longer than other brands when installed correctly. They are quite difficult to install correctly and I encourage anybody reading this to seek out an experienced bench jeweler with many years of jewelry repair experience to install one if you can not make it to our Custom jewelry store.
