Marquise Diamond Puzzle Ring with 2mm Shadow Band in 14K Yellow Gold
This hand-woven engagement puzzle ring is a truly unique piece, because the 1/2CT diamond is so long that it looks more like a 3/4CT diamond. In a marquise diamond, length and width is everything. Yes, the 2:1 length to width ratio that is considered to be ‘ideal’ is lovely. But when we find a diamond such as this one that is extra long, we jump at the chance to get it, as it will give the impression of a much larger diamond at a lower cost. There are three dimensions for a marquise diamond: length, width, and depth. An extra long marquise diamond may be a bit shallower than the next diamond. We find the length to be such an important characteristic that it can outweigh other diamond characteristics.
For example, we normally select diamonds with only D-E-F color (top of range). But if we can find a diamond shaped like this one, we will even accept a color of G or H, with our client’s permission, of course.
This engagement puzzle ring has four bands and an open weave – see how much air is seen between the front loops of the ring? An open puzzle ring weave like this is generally paired with a shadow band that follows each nook and cranny of the edge of the puzzle ring.
Both rings are entirely hand-made. Although we cannot promise we will find a half-carat diamond again with these dimensions, we will be happy to make you a set like this with a glorious, sparkling diamond that you will have the opportunity to approve before we set it in your bridal set.
