Tommy wrote in from Australia at the beginning of March inquiring about a pear shape diamond halo engagement ring:
I really like your halo rings, but I wanted something a little bit simpler. Basically I want a halo with but without any diamonds on the band. I saw this pear ring you made which is beautiful. I would love the front to look like this, i.e. a delicate halo close to the diamond. The prongs are awesome here too, in fact there is nothing I could improve on this front view (or maybe it is called top view, ie the view straight at the diamond):
Denise sourced a beautiful GIA certified 1.57 carat pear shape diamond, which was carefully checked and approved by Brian Gavin and his team. We then set about creating the CAD for the setting. After clarifying some details, Tommy approved the CAD. We cast the platinum setting and then set the F/G VS Brian Gavin Signature melee. We set the pear shape with 4 delicate claw shape prongs and a thin v tip. We shipped the package via FedEx Priority International fully insured, along with the AUSFTA paperwork for customs.
The proposal went well, and even though she knew I was proposing later this year, I managed to surprise her both with an early proposal and with the ring (which was much more than she expected). She still hasn't been able to take her eyes of the ring 🙂
