American Pearl & Diamond (our sister company and available by clicking the diamond tab at the very top of this page) was commissioned to create a Platinum three stone Cushion Cut Diamond Ring through our Jewelry Replicator, the center diamond is a 3 carat E Color, VVS2 Clarity Cushion Modified Brilliant Diamond with GIA Certificate. The center diamond 9.43 x 7.81 x 5.32mm, flanked by two cushion diamonds, approximately E color, VS1 Clarity approximately 5.5mm long by 4.3mm wide each, ring size is in between 5 3/4 and 6 as you can see above.
A cushion cut diamond is a type of diamond cut that has a square or rectangular shape with rounded corners, similar in appearance to a cushion or pillow. It typically has 58 facets and is a popular choice for engagement rings and other jewelry. The cut is known for its soft, rounded edges and its ability to reflect light well, resulting in a brilliant and sparkling appearance. Cushion cut diamonds are available in a variety of sizes and carat weights.
Cushion cut diamonds are popular for several reasons. One reason is their unique and vintage-inspired appearance, which many people find to be elegant and timeless. The soft rounded edges and large facets of cushion cut diamonds also create a beautiful sparkle and brilliance that many find very attractive. Additionally, cushion cut diamonds are known for their ability to hide inclusions and other imperfections better than other diamond cuts, which makes them a good choice for those looking for a diamond with a high clarity grade. Overall, cushion cut diamonds are a popular choice for those who want a diamond that is both unique and sparkling.
Cushion cut diamonds differ from radiant, princess cut, and oval diamonds in several ways.
Radiant cut diamonds have a similar shape to cushion cut diamonds but have a more modern appearance, with a rectangular shape and straight edges. Radiant cut diamonds also have 70 facets as compared to cushion cut diamonds which typically have 58 facets. Radiant cut diamonds are known for their high level of sparkle and brilliance.
Princess cut diamonds, on the other hand, have a square shape with sharp, clean edges and typically have 76 facets. Princess cut diamonds are known for their high level of brilliance and fire and are a popular choice for engagement rings.
Oval cut diamonds are also a popular choice for engagement rings and have an elongated, oval shape, with around 56 to 58 facets. Oval cut diamonds have a high level of brilliance and fire and can create the illusion of a larger diamond.
In summary, Cushion cut diamonds are characterized by their square or rectangular shape with rounded corners, radiant cut diamonds have a similar shape but with more facets and straight edges, Princess cut diamonds are square with sharp edges and many facets, and oval cut diamonds have an elongated oval shape with a good brilliance.
After the engagement ring was gifted, were then commissioned to create a matching diamond wedding band whose diamonds are set three-quarters atop the surface of the band.
A diamond wedding band is a type of ring that is traditionally worn by a bride as part of her bridal set, along with an engagement ring. It is a band made of precious metal, such as gold, platinum, or white gold, that is encrusted with diamonds. The diamonds can be set in a variety of ways such as channel, prong, or pave setting. Diamond wedding bands can be worn on their own or stacked with other bands. They are often given as a symbol of love and commitment by a groom to his bride on their wedding day, and they are designed to complement the bride's engagement ring. Diamond wedding bands can also be worn by men as well.
People often ask us the difference between prong setting and pave setting which are two different ways to set diamonds in jewelry.
Prong setting is a type of setting where small metal prongs, usually four or six, are used to hold the diamond securely in place. The prongs are bent over the edges of the diamond, holding it in place. This setting allows for a lot of light to reach the diamond, which maximizes its sparkle and brilliance. Prong setting is often used in solitaire engagement rings and other jewelry designs where a single diamond is the focal point.
Pave setting, on the other hand and shown in this newly created wedding band we made, is a type of setting where small diamonds are set closely together, creating an even, "paved" surface. The diamonds are set in small holes in the metal, and tiny beads or prongs, called "grain" or "pave," are used to hold the diamonds in place. This setting is often used for diamond wedding bands, eternity bands, and other jewelry designs where a continuous sparkle is desired. Pave setting creates a very luxurious and elegant look.
In summary, Prong setting is where small metal prongs hold the diamond securely in place, allowing a lot of light to reach the diamond, while Pave setting is where small diamonds are set closely together, creating an even, "paved" surface, and tiny beads or prongs hold the diamonds in place.
An eternity band is a type of ring that typically features a continuous row of diamonds or other gemstones that go all the way around the band. The name "eternity band" comes from the idea that the ring symbolizes eternal love, because the diamonds go all the way around the band and never end.
Eternity bands are often given as a gift to mark a special occasion such as an anniversary or the birth of a child, and they are typically worn stacked with an engagement ring and wedding band. They can be made in different metals such as gold, platinum, and white gold, and they can have diamonds or other gemstones in different cuts, carat weight, clarity, and color. The diamonds or gemstones can be set in different ways such as prong, channel, or pave setting.
Eternity bands are not only for women, but also for men, and can be purchased as matching bands for couples as well. They can be worn as a standalone ring or stacked with other bands.
In summary, An eternity band is a type of ring that features a continuous row of diamonds or other gemstones that go all the way around the band, often symbolizing eternal love and is often given as a gift for special occasions. It can be made in different metals and have different setting styles, and can be worn by both men and women.
A 3/4 eternity band featured here, also known as a "half eternity" band, is a type of ring that features a continuous row of diamonds or other gemstones that go around 3/4 of the band, rather than all the way around like a full eternity band.
There are several reasons why someone might choose to get a 3/4 eternity band. One reason is cost. A 3/4 eternity band typically costs less than a full eternity band because it uses fewer diamonds or gemstones. This can make it a more affordable option for those who want the look of an eternity band but have a limited budget.
Another reason someone might choose a 3/4 eternity band is that it can be more comfortable to wear than a full eternity band. Because the diamonds or gemstones only go around 3/4 of the band, the ring is less likely to spin around on the finger, and the diamonds or gemstones are less likely to get caught on clothing or other objects.
A 3/4 eternity band as shown below can also be a good option for those who want a ring that is versatile and can be worn with other jewelry. Because the diamonds or gemstones only go around 3/4 of the band, it can be worn with other bands or a wedding ring.
In summary, A 3/4 eternity band is a type of ring that features a continuous row of diamonds or other gemstones that go around 3/4 of the band, rather than all the way around like a full eternity band. It can be a more affordable option, more comfortable to wear, and more versatile than a full eternity band.
