platinum bezel engagement ring, artisan handmade
made to order in 4-8 weeks --
depending upon the length of our queue
This modern and unique platinum engagement ring has been hand forged from start to finish, which is exceedingly rare in these days when ring stock and bezels can be purchased pre-made and then soldered together. The methods Dan used for production of this ring are the same as those used by metalsmiths centuries ago.
Dan will melt the raw platinum, hand mill the ring stock, and forge the stock into its concave shape. Platinum has an extremely high melting point (3236 degrees F), so working with raw platinum requires a big torch, dark glasses, and lots of fire. We use an alloy of 95/5 platinum/ruthenium for our platinum jewelry.
The band of this ring is 11mm x 1.5mm in dimensions and it cradles a 6mm bezel-set sapphire in its concave profile. He has hammered it with our petite waterfall hammering, which really sparkles as the light ripples over its facets, and expertly set the sapphire in a hand forged bezel.
