emerald cut lily solitaire

Tuesday, January 26th, 2021
Custom-designed & hand-carved solitaire with 1ct emerald cut diamond. Lily flower, leaves, bulb motif.

This was a re-do of a wedding solitaire: I removed this 1ct emerald-cut diamond from its original setting, and designed a new one around it. The motif is lilies + leaves framing the stone, bulbs and roots entwined across the base of the band, all very three-dimensional and sculptural in styling. Little 2mm Old European Cut diamonds are set in the centers of the blooms.

Custom-designed & hand-carved solitaire with 1ct emerald cut diamond. Lily flower, leaves, bulb motif.

The bezel sides are open so you can get a peek of the diamond pavilion, and also to let a little additional light into the stone. Very happy with how the ring turned out.
