Our Client came to us with a picture from an auction house that had recently sold this ring. Since the ring was from 1915, the style was not a normal jewelry store item. She really wanted it in yellow gold, so we went to work re-styling the ring.
We created a CAD first.
The minor changes to the original design were made to accommodate more diamonds and for durability. The original ring was made with a very thin shank (bottom portion of the ring) for a woman in the early 20th century, likely a high-class society type. This woman likely didn't work and so her jewelery didn't need to endure much more than the occasional clink against a champagne flute. We thickened the shank and made the ring more robust. The results speak for themselves. The ring we created has 1.42 carats of diamonds (more than half a carat more than the original), will last a lifetime, and looks amazing.
