Customization Part IV Band Setting Style for Side Diamonds

"...but babe, I want more bling!", a phrase I often hear in my 3 years in JannPaul. 😁

Why are girls so inlove with bling stuffs? Simple, it is super pretty and you can play with more designs when you have them! 

Let's start of with how they can be set on the band.

Here is the video for illustration!


Please watch out for our next blogs. We will talk more about ring customization.

JP Diamond Ring Customization Process

Each of our rings are individually handcrafted by our Master Crafter, where we are able to provide you a full customization service! From the material and design of the band to the intricacy of the prong head, everything can be customized to your preference!

In this video, we'll walk through with you of what to expect and how we can go about to customize your perfect ring!


1. After you have selected your diamond, we would scan it into our Sarin machine which would give us a virtual dimension of your exact diamond.

2. A 3D render of your ring design will be created with your virtual diamond, with a 360 degrees view of your design. The 3D render can be further revised to your preference.

3. When you have selected your final 3D render, we may superimpose your diamond ring on to your partner's hand. This will allow you to visualize how your diamond and ring design will look on her finger! You may check out more about our superimpose technology here.

4. If you would like, we may use your 3D render file to create a wax mold of your ring! This will give you a physical feel and view of how your ring design will look in real life. You may read out more about our Revo wax machine here.

A Pave Double Band Twist Diamond Engagement Ring

Here's a Super Ideal Cut diamond on a customized pave double band twist design. The ring is handcrafted in 18k white gold, beautifully made to be proportional to the main diamond. 

The side profile of this design is made in such a way that you can view the completely (unblocked) side view of the diamond, giving the appearance that the main diamond is suspended in the air! This is a popular feature for 4 prongs designs, which can bring out the main diamond.

Customization Part III: Crown Height and Tray

Very often, a rings' crown is neglected! 

"It's just a small part, won't be noticed!"

That's where you're mistaken!

In this post, I will be showing you the importance of the crown, its height and the tray designs.

Have you ever come across a friend, colleague or just a random individual with an engagement ring taller than what you're used to seeing? It typically comes with intricate curvatures on the sides, some nicer than others.

Have you ever wondered why this is the case? "Is this for added beauty or maybe it's just to hold the diamond higher?"

Here are a few reasons why some ladies prefer a higher ring setting

1) In many cases, higher settings are more easily matched with wedding bands. The height of a setting allows another band to sit-in nicely, thus, making it a popular option for ladies planning to stack their engagement ring and wedding band together.



2) Just like a celebrity wanting the limelight to themselves, they usually try to stand-out. More relevant to women than men, women tend to wear heels for this very reason! The same goes for a diamond on a higher setting, it elevates and this makes it appear slightly bigger and more pronounced!

3) Some ladies prefer to add more details and in order to so, would require more space. One way  to achieve this is to set the diamond higher, leaving enough gap for more artsy designs. I will leave the artistic part for later, so as to discuss it in further detail.

So the question is, would you be wearing it on a daily basis? 

If so, are you comfortable with a protruding diamond? Although all diamonds protrude slightly, a higher than average setting would be more prone to knocks when you go about your daily stuff. This may be one point to note, when considering a higher setting.

Once you've decided between the higher or lower setting, you may then opt for additional designs to the prongs. Bear in mind that higher settings tend to give more room to accommodate more intricate designs.

Artistic Trays

One of the ways you can make your high or even low setting look nicer is by adding artistic trays. A tray is basically a bar that holds two prongs together, aside for added aesthetics, it also provides more security, to ensure the diamond doesn't fall off, should the prongs loosen over time. 




Below are some samples of trays you may refer to.
Do note that, you may also customize the color, be it white, rose gold or yellow gold.
And you do not have to worry about the color being reflected to your diamond because all our Signature cut diamonds always reflect light back, causing light leakage to be very minimal! 

Classic Tray (Bar)



V or Inverted V Tray



Heart Tray (Solid, Hollow or Filled)

Shaped trays like this may be solid, hollow or filled with diamond or other gemstones. However, certain gems have limitations to the size they can be cut to. As such, bigger trays may be required for certain gemstones.



 Round Tray

                                  


Initial Tray



Filigree-like Tray

Filigree is gold formed into delicate tracery or branching patterns. It may form into different shapes like this.



Petal Crown Head



Aside from these samples, there are many more to consider from!. Go ahead and think out of the box and we'll definitely help you bring it to life! With the advancements in 3D modeling and crafting,  the sky is the limit when it comes to designs!

What You Need To Know About Diamond Color Tints

A diamond can have a several color tints, such as yellow, brown, green or grey. 

Brown, green or grey color tinted diamonds should be avoided because the diamond will look darker for their color grade. These color tints may not be reflected on the GIA certificate due to its hue.


An industry term for this is BGM (Brown, Greenish, Milky) diamonds. Always ensure that your diamond has ''No BGM''.




In the diamonds that we used in this video, they are G Color. All 3 piles of diamonds are G Colors, but in different color hues.

For all of our diamonds, we always ensure that there are no brown, green or grey tints. In addition, we do not accept diamonds with milkiness. Diamonds with these characteristics will not be reflected on the GIA/AGS certificate and are priced lower for these negative effects. Visually inspect your diamond for this or check with your jeweller.
