Many rings today are cast or CAD designed and made, and while many can be absolutely beautiful, there is nothing quite like a ring that has been made entirely by hand using techniques of a bygone era such as this diamond engagement ring made by our master jeweller and incorporating two fantastic and unique aspects. Hand made in platinum and our very own 18 carat Kalmar Yellowrose gold, it is best to take a moment to explain this. Gold can be made into a combination of carats and colour by adding other alloys into the gold when molten. For example, adding more or less copper will make the gold a rose or pink colour, silver among other white alloys can produce white gold, and then there is 75% gold in the allow it is 18 carat gold and when 37.5% gold, it is 9 carat gold. Knowing all of this, our Master Jeweller who painstakingly hand made this ring created our own 18 carat Kalmar Yellowrose gold that has the most magnificent and incredible soft yellow to rose colour that looks amazing on the skin and has such an incredible warm tone to it. It truly is unlike straight rose gold nor yellow gold and looks absolutely incredible day or night. Then this ring is not only set with a diamond in the centre and three more on each side, but these are all antique diamonds that adds even more to the charm, uniqueness and character of the ring. In the centre sits a 0.74 carat round early brilliant cut diamond that is H in colour and Si in clarity and on each side are three single cut diamonds that total 0.12 carats. And yet to make the ring even more special is the incredible setting with so much detail that they are set into. Finished with a millgrain setting which is the elegant crimping along the edge of the setting, all of this in platinum then leads to the gorgeous 18 carat Kalmar Yellowrose. From every angle and aspect, this is such an amazing diamond engagement ring that will make any woman so proud to wear it, and this is just one example of what we can make for you if you wish to have your perfect piece of jewellery hand made and created just for you.
