Buffy and Adam had purchased a beautiful Canadian Diamond but still needed a custom engagement ring to showcase the gem. Buffy was a dream client- she had a very good idea of what she was looking for and had some images to illustrate her dream ring. She really wanted a tension set diamond but wanted one side of the ring to be flush for the wedding band to sit against. Most tension set rings are a criss-cross shank design. This causes issues if you want an wedding band to fit well with the engagement ring. In order to accommodate the large diamond and the flush side, the inside of the band needed to be tapered in thickness around the gem. When I showed Buffy the CAD of the ring I was worried that she wouldn't like this detail of the design. She loved it. Buffy is First Nations and it reminded her and Adam of an eagle eye. It always amazes me when this happens with a design. It couldn't have been planned any better!
