Refurbished Pink Sapphire Ring & Wedding Band
Sadly, Suzie had lost some diamonds from her wedding ring set.
Originally, she had three round diamonds flush set into her white gold wedding band, one was missing and had been lost.
Suzie’s engagement ring had four square diamonds in an illusion setting in the head (top) – this is where all four are set so closely together, they give the illusion of one larger diamond. One of these square diamonds was missing from the top, plus one round diamond from the shoulder of her ring. The shoulders are channel set – it’s always a good idea to have channel set stones tightened up once per year.
Suzie was keen to have a pink sapphire set into the top of her engagement ring; instead of her illusion set diamonds. This meant she would need a new setting to accommodate her new pink sapphire. We talked about some different options and Suzie chose a full rubover setting for a new pink sapphire gemstone.
Louise showed Suzie a couple of different shades of pink sapphire, and let her choose the one she liked the best. Suzie went with the bright pink sapphire instead of the more lavender shade of pink.
The old illusion setting (top) was cut from her engagement ring, and the new one soldered into its place. You can see that her new pink sapphire fits snuggly into its new setting.
The three remaining square diamonds from her illusion setting were flush set into her wedding band. We love how changing the shape of her diamonds from round to square in her wedding band gives it a more contemporary look and feel – and matches beautifully with her Princess Cut (square) pink sapphire.
One of the original round diamonds from her wedding band was set into the shoulder of her engagement ring (where one was missing). Both white gold rings were rhodium plated to give them a brilliant ‘white’ finish.
Swapping Suzie’s stones around like this means that all of her gaps are filled and she doesn’t need to buy additional diamonds unnecessarily.
