This is not a typical mass produced ring that is thin, lightweight, and meant to last only for a few years. This is thick and heavy. Even the prongs are extra heavy.
First, we took the ring shank portion, the part in the back that is usually thin, lightweight, prone to cracking and breaking. We gave it a dome shape, like a comfort fit wedding band. We made it 2mm thick and 4mm wide!
The detailed cuffs are 5mm wide. The top of the crown to the bottom of the fingers is 9.5mm wide. The bottom of the heart to the top of the crown is 10.5mm wide. This ring was made for a 1/2ct gem stone of 5-5.5mm. The ring as shown was set with a diamond of VVS clarity, H color and .54cts. All carving, sizing, shaping and detailing is done in the wax by hand, not CNC CAD computer.
