Eve has just completed a lovely diamond engagement ring in 18 karat Blond gold (that she invented with a warmer white hue). We are pleased now to be able to share the pictures of it with you as it is so beautiful. Eve worked very closely with a nice young man who wished to have an engagement ring created as a surprise.
This ring features a nearly 1 3/4 carat cushion-cut center diamond. The diamond is set in a halo around the center accented by 40 small diamonds on the four sides of the ring’s split shank. (Weighing over half a carat) Eve added milgrained edges in the blond gold wherever the diamonds are set, a charming detail. If you look closely, you can see that Eve has added open arches all around the base of the center diamond’s setting, and more carved scrollwork above the arches.
“It was designed for an imaginary 15th century princess. I wanted to capture the feeling of a beautiful girl walking in her enclosed garden at dusk, thinking about her coming wedding, and that is why I formed these arches like in a Medieval cloister. Its a peaceful place where you can meditate, with fountains and roses blooming. To imitate the splashing of fountains, the beautiful central diamond is surrounded with a halo of diamonds, and the diamonds are also found below, not only in the graceful arched band, but also at the top of the tier with the arched ‘walk’. I wanted this to be a little monument, something exquisite to carry with you and celebrate the wonderful thing that occurs when two people meet, who were destined to be together.” – Eve Alfille, Designer
How can the lucky young woman say anything but “YES!!”?
