A New Year, A New Setting. Remounting a stunning Pear shaped diamond for our client

This Pear shaped diamond needed a new setting, and it had to be identical in design to the original ring (without the wear of course).

With this ring, it was necessary to make a wax model from the stone’s dimensions, along with the dimensions of the brilliant cut diamonds that surrounded it, hence the purple ‘ring’ in this montage.

From the wax model, it was possible to produce the new settings and shank. This ring is made from 3 parts. The top plate which holds the stones, the under gallery that supports it all and finally the shank. It was then that the diamond setter's skills come to the fore, to finish the ring off and produce many smiles from a happy client.

A very important piece of jewellery for a lovely lady, made by Buchanans Jewellers in Lymington

At Christmas, we were asked to make a very special ring for a lady, which incorporated this stunning effect that's provided by the combination of a Black Diamond in the centre surrounded by the striking richness of the rubies and mounted in white gold, just to add to the visual delight.

There's little for us to say with this design because we think that the ring speaks for its self. We hope you agree
