Commission: Palladium and Ruby Engagement Ring

Ruby Palladium Engagement Ring

This palladium engagement ring is designed to sit as a pair with the diamond one that I made last year, for a couple of ladies who are getting married this summer. I was a joy to make the ‘other half’ of their engagement rings so that they have a set with such similar characters.

This ring needed to be very practical and include a favourite gem of the bride to be: rubies. With that in mind it seemed that using small, flush set stones would be best as she’ll be able to leave it on all day at work without worry.

The original ring had a twisted, raised ‘edge’ which ran all the way around it, highlighted by a bright polish against the matt finish on the body of the ring. I’ve accentuated this twist at the front of the new ring, widening it to give me space to add a little thread of rubies that sit within the curve and ‘flow’ around the ring.

We’ve kept the same, durable matt finish on this ring which really shows off the polished edge of the wave and the sparkle of the subtle sparkle of the stones:Ruby Palladium Engagement Ring by Becca Williams Jewellery Designer

At the start of the year I made this diamond and palladium engagement ring, for some friends who will be getting married next year. Now that the proposal has happened (and she said ‘yes’) I’m safe to post the photographs without ruining the surprise!

Palladium Diamond Wave Engagement Ring

This ring was designed to be really wearable, but still have a substantial bit of sparkle about it, with a prominent central diamond that’s set quote low – so as not to scratch and catch.

It has a really subtle, curved knife section band, with a comfortable rounded side which sits on your finger and a soft point that faces outwards, forming that bright, polished line which runs around the band and draws your eye right along to the diamond.

The diamond itself is Canadian, a beautiful Princess Cut which is securely set in a bezel.

Here’s how it was made, from drawings to ring:
