A classic design that stands the test of time.  Simple, yet elegant.  Crafted in precious platinum and showcasing a very fine emerald cut diamond and flanked by tapered baguette cut diamonds.

The center diamond is nearly a full carat at .96ct.  We pulled the diamond and sent it to GIA for a diamond lab report.  It is a D color (the best there is!) and VS2 clarity.  An emerald cut diamond is "step cut".  You can see the facets decending on the diamond much like steps.

The side diamonds are also step cut, but do not have cut corners, so they are considered baguette cut.  These are estimated at .20ct each.  They are very nice, in the D-F color range and VS1-VS2.

Most finer pieces of white metal jewelry made during this time period, and earlier, were made in platinum, rather than white gold.  Why?  Platinum is a preciious metal that is naturally white.  Unlike gold, which is yellow, then bleached with nickel to give it a "white-ish" color, then rhodium plated to make it look platinum color.  But the rhodium plating wears away.  Platinum will never yellow.  It is 90-95% pure, so it's hypo-allergenic.

NOTE:  This ring also has a matching diamond wedding band.  Make it a set!  The wedding band fits nicely next to the engagement ring.  Crafted in platinum with three baguette diamonds.   Only $695.  Let us know if you would like to add this to your order.
