When I got the call for a custom 2.5CT Engagement ring, I was beyond delighted to get to work on such a glamorous project!

Let me begin by saying a 2.51CT is a dream size center stone partly because of the size but not only, the clarity and color of the stone were incredibly beautiful and it’s always fun to work with exquisite material. Coming up with a setting for this stone was very exciting, trying to think of ways to best showcase the center stone and not underplay the setting. We started very simple breaking it down into steps. What was my clients finances style,what would she wear comfortably? After a few back and fourths between myself and my client we decided to move forward with a beautiful solitaire setting that inspires with its simplistic ellagance. I always love projects like these, getting to be involved with all of your love stories and coming up with creative timeless pieces that will be cherished and worn for years to come.


Casted in 18K Super White special alloy, that will never need any rhodium cover ups was one of our base choices. We then moved on to the selection of the diamond’s budget and DNA – where we first chose color over clarity-
a. Because of the white gold alloy- we would necessary need a higher color stone.
b. Because of the cushion cut DNA, it shows less imperfections in clarity.(depending on the imperfections- of course).

We narrowed the options down, searching for a GIA stone that shifts between an E to G color, SI in clarity, but a white feathered imperfections one. This wasn’t the easiest task but when we did find the one- it was very satisfying.

At YAMA we know how important it is for you to feel like you are creating pieces that you can wear with pride. We are always delighted to work with each client one-on-one to ensure that your piece stands out as your own. Made to order custom designs with your input, and personal touch.

For me, when designing a piece, it’s not just jewelry; these are heirlooms, collectables, meant to be cherished.
