Before & After: Resetting an Engagement Ring
Posted on July 07 2015
“Hello, I would like to upgrade my original ring [pictured, above right]. I currently have a emerald cut ruby center stone in a platinum setting. I would like your halo setting with my original stone,” Jasmine wrote. Additionally, Jasmine wanted to convert her old engagement ring setting into a pair of earrings.
Submitting that form put her in touch with our design team. Once Jasmine placed the order two days later, a CAD (computer aided design) was created so that the new halo engagement ring setting would fit her 1.96-carat Burmese ruby perfectly. Below is a graphical representation of the CAD, showing four different angles.
Jasmine shipped her ring to us, and manufacturing the new ring and earrings took approximately 8-12 days.
Her new engagement ring setting (pictured at top, left) provides a more contemporary look, while the halo of diamonds accentuates and enlarges her center ruby, providing a lot more sparkle. Here’s also a picture of the “new” earrings (at right).
Within a few weeks of her original inquiry, Jasmine’s new ring and earrings were on their way to her doorstep. Her ring purchased was accompanied by an appraisal by one of our in-house GIA graduate gemologists.
As a side note, clients can simply order an engagement ring setting and provide us with their center stone information during the checkout process by entering the information into the comments section of their order. When they receive the setting, they can have their stone set locally by a reputable jeweler. While Jasmine’s earrings were certainly custom, her new engagement ring setting is not considered custom.
