Selecting the Perfect Diamonds

At Buchroeders Jewelers, the diamond selection process for our exceptional oval Three Stone custom engagement ring is a meticulous journey aimed at crafting a masterpiece.. Our team leaves no stone unturned in ensuring that each diamond chosen for this ring meets the highest standards of quality and perfectly complements the overall design.

With a keen eye for detail, our experts begin by evaluating each diamond's 4Cs—cut, color, clarity, and carat weight. The cut of the diamonds is of paramount importance, as it directly impacts the stones' brilliance and fire. Our specialists carefully assess the proportions and ratio of each diamond, selecting only those that will fit together to make the perfect trio.

When it comes to color, we strive to find diamonds that seamlessly harmonize with one another. For the oval Three Stone custom engagement ring, we seek out diamonds that share similar color grades, ensuring that the side stones elegantly complement the center oval diamond. We aimed to get diamonds that were near colorless because we were setting the diamonds in an all yellow gold setting. Choosing colorless diamonds ensures that the diamonds wouldn’t look too warm against the yellow gold metal. 

Clarity is another essential aspect we look at during the selection process. Our experts meticulously inspect each diamond to ensure that it is free from any imperfections or inclusions that may detract from its brilliance. By selecting diamonds with good clarity, we ensure that the ring's overall sparkle and beauty remain unparalleled.

Putting it All Together

With the setting and diamonds chosen, the spotlight turned to the skilled master bench jeweler, Jesse. A true artisan with a passion for his craft, Jesse took the responsibility of bringing the ring to life.

Using traditional jewelry-making techniques combined with modern precision tools, Jesse began the delicate process of crafting the engagement ring. He shaped the setting, ensuring that it perfectly fit the oval diamonds. Each prong was carefully shaped into claw prongs.
