A frantic client was fortunate to have found her heirloom 4 carat, pear shape diamond, after it had fallen out of it’s setting and gone missing! The original mounting had a “bent + torn lower prong”, with all other prongs showing significant wear and tear, which resulted in the diamond being knocked out of the setting. Costs were evaluated to supply 5 brand new platinum prongs, versus creating a brand new, custom made, 14 karat white gold setting, to fit the diamond and its baguette side accent diamonds. A brand new setting, identical in style to the original setting, was deemed a far superior option in durability and cost and a CADD computerized design was generated for client approval. The final result was a new streamlined, classic setting which could hold up to every day wear, so that the client could again feel confident in wearing her diamond ring!
