Design and Manufacturing:
This ring is a custom, one off design. The band has a "twisted scalloped" design and is accented with milgrain edging. The center diamond is held in place with a six prong setting with rounded tips.
The design was created in CAD (computer aided design) using Matrix Gold. Matrix is a parametric based program specifically used for jewelry. A 3D resin model was printed, and from that a mold was created for casting using a "lost wax process", named for the fact that the resin model in burned away to create the mold. This is a one-off piece that will never be recreated except by client request.
