Platinum Diamond Filigree Setting from James Allen
Vintage engagement rings are certainly in style but not everyone wants to pick through vintage shops and estate sales to find their dream ring. Plus, if you’re spending upwards of $2000 on a diamond ring, you probably want some control over the diamond – which makes up the bulk of most ring’s costs. You’ll be happy to know that everything old IS new again at James Allen where they carry an extensive assortment of vintage inspired engagement ring settings.
What I loved about this filigree vintage replica setting were the details – double claw prongs, a unique halo design, and delicate pavé and filligrée details on the shank. You’ll have to see this ring in full rotation to appreciate all of them, so keep reading.
It’s certainly the best of both worlds when you select a high-quality vintage reproduction engagement ring setting, (this one is currently priced at $1480 at James Allen) and have your pick from a huge database of diamonds- both mined and lab-created. One shopper – going for the high-end – chose to build this ring in durable platinum (the setting is also available in white, yellow and rose gold) with a 0.71 carat H, VS2 ($3420) True Hearts diamond from James Allen for the utmost sparkle and “scintillation.” Here are all the specs:
Selecting a True Hearts diamond in this platinum setting increases the price, but the benefits outweigh the cost savings IMO. A platinum ring will have a more substantial feel, and there will be less concern about the smaller pavé stones coming loose from the setting. Plus, the True Hearts diamond gives you crazy sparkle which will make this ring an eye-catcher for years to come. Remember, selecting platinum and Ideal-Cut colorless diamonds in the D-I range (where this H diamond falls) are the hallmarks of a Tiffany & Co. engagement ring so whenever you’re trying to replicate high-end style use these parameters as your guide.
To get the full effect of this setting you’ve got to view it from all angles, and thanks to James Allen’s 360-degree technology we can do just that.
