This is a beautiful diamond ring with a distinctive cathedral setting. The cathedral setting is one of the most elegant, classic and popular engagement ring settings. Similar to the cathedral arches it uses arches of metal to support and securely hold the centre diamond or coloured gemstone. The centre stone can be set with prongs, bezel, tension or basket design and it can sit low or high above the arches. It’s defining characteristic is not how the centre stone is held but rather how the mounting is built and how the shank and the arches are relating. The cathedral engagement ring setting got its name because as the name implies, it’s shape mimics the grace and elegance of a cathedral.
A really distinctive piece of jewellery, this is an oval cut diamond in crossover diamond setting. The beautiful centre diamond is held in with four prongs, which is a nice alternative to the traditional round cut diamond. However, what really makes this piece stand out is the crossover setting, which curves around the finger, before joining back towards the diamond. The curve is then highlighted with smaller diamonds placed along the band.
This is a stunning marquise diamond ring, also sometimes referred to as the “Navette” shape, meaning “little boat,” as the shape of the diamond is said to mirror the hull of a small boat.
