Peacock inspired 9ct rose and yellow gold engagement and wedding ring set

Ed and laura both have a love of nature, but the peacock struck a particular chord with Laura because of a love of peacock colours.Also they shared a story about Ed and Laura following a peacock about in a reserve whilst in Australia when they first met. To capture the beautiful colours in the design, we used a mixture of rose and yellow gold like the shine on the feathers, with a 0.18cts blue sapphire, 2.5mm alexandrite and 2mm heat-treated forrest green diamond were channel set into a feather shaped setting. 9ct yellow and rose gold have been angled so one blends to the other. The rose gold wedding band slips underneath the overhanging curve so the engagement and wedding ring sit next to each other with no gaps. Eds 4mm wide polished wedding band was made in 9ct rose gold to match.Coloured diamonds like this get their beautiful colours when they are heated at very high temperatures and pressures to achieve this permanent colour change. Natural occurring diamonds of this colour are very rare and cost many thousands of pounds and so this treatment process brings these coloured diamonds within reach. This also means that the ring must not be heated up to very high temperatures (eg by a jeweller during resizing of the ring) so special care needs to be taken when resizing this ring in the future and the stone must be carefully removed and re-set during any future resizing work.
