Last week, we wrote a blog announcing the engagement of Katie Couric and financier John Molner. At that time, photos of her diamond engagement ring had not been released leaving everyone to speculate. Since then, photos of Katie and her newest sparkling edition have been released and certainly shocked many fans, including myself. Katie’s diamond ring simply re-affirms the craze over cushion cut halo engagement rings. Katie’s diamond engagement ring design is almost identical to our style # HE104, but ours, without a doubt is a fraction of the cost. You can purchase an engagement ring from deBebians to get celebrity look without the added cost.
HE104 is one of the best selling cushion halo engagement ring designs at deBebians. Featuring U-pave set diamonds, HE104 has an ultra slender shank of approximately 2mm in width and a halo designed to enhance the size of the center stone. Katie’s diamond ring also features a single row U-pave style shank and halo. At deBebians, we manufacture all of our engagement halo settings to fit the contour of center stone giving the illusion that the halo is part of the center stone. If you select a center cushion diamond that is square, your halo will follow the same square like shape. If, however, you select a cushion diamond that has more length, as in the photo above, the halo will be manufactured more rectangular. Everyone ring manufactured at deBebians is unique because of this. Katie’s halo as you can see sits tight next to the center stone and has an overall square shape. Both Katie’s ring and our HE104 style are prong set engagement rings.
HE104 features a basket design similar to Katie’s which makes the overall ring feel larger as it extends outward from the sides of the shank (see images above). HE104 can be further customized to be like Katie’s to feature extra pave diamonds underneath the basket for added sparkle in every direction. If you are looking to place an order for this setting, be sure to ask for pricing on this! HE104 truly is the ultimate cushion halo engagement ring design and exactly like Katie’s without the steep price tag.
