There are a few cool things about this ring. “Compass” setting a square diamond is always a fun way to set a diamond. That orientation is a great twist to give a modern feel to an engagement ring. This stone is a modified Radiant cut and it is different then princess cut. It is a gorgeous diamond.
We custom made the ring in house. The baguettes, channel set end-to-end, gives an interesting visual appearance. Next time I make a ring again with baguettes set that way, I will get a matching set of stones before carving the wax, when I have the most flexibility. I had to sort through a pile of hundreds of stones of many various sizes. Getting a perfectly matched set of baguettes, with the same length to width (to 1/10th of a mm), to fit the existing channel took more effort then if I made the channel to fit the first set of 6 matching stones I find. But the end result was great.
Both profile sides of the ring have two bezel set round diamonds. I first soldered the bezels on a scrap ring. Then I set the diamonds. I unsoldered the bezels, polished them and finally laser welded them in the new mounting. I was very happy how clean that turned out.
