|Antique Marquis Rose Cut Diamond. Mimi Favre©|
After nearly three decades of everyday wear next to narrow gold band the shank was very misshapen and the stone was loose. The only safe alternative was to completely remake the ring. The client requested that the stone be set low and for the side diamonds to be as narrow as possible, unlike the previous.
I made a new setting in wax, identical to the original and made the shank so that the tiny old miner side stones be set closer to the top.
The diamond is eye clean, very white though a bit flat, however relatively large and completely unique. It really is a beautiful stone that has been in one family for nearly one hundred years.
