I wanted to design a twist style 9ct white gold engagement ring which had a symmetrical design and incorporated a heat treated ice blue diamond. The width of the engagement ring is approximately 3mm wide which tapers into a curving point. The profile is a gentle curve to emphasise the soft, flowing design. I chose the natural colour of 9ct white gold to hold a 2mm brilliant cut ice blue diamond in a marquise grain setting. Coloured diamonds like this blue one get their beautiful colours when they are heated at very high temperatures and pressures to achieve this permanent colour change. Natural occuring 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.
