Shortly thereafter, I received a promo email from Brilliance with this twisted split shank ring with the kite setting (aka compass setting or NSEW setting, where the princess cut diamond is rotated so it appears to be a diamond shape instead of square). I fell in love with this ring immediately, and requested it be made in platinum as I have several metal allergies. On that note, after wearing the ring for a few weeks, experiencing an allergic reaction, and getting a complete patch done at a specialist, I asked Anthony for more assistance to confirm what alloy metals were used with their platinum. Anthony went above and beyond to answer my questions and help. Turns out the reaction was not from my ring after all (thank goodness... a set of tweezers was the culprit!), so now I'm looking forward to ordering a platinum wedding ring from Brilliance as well.
One thing to note – the width of the band at its widest point is 6mm. This caught me a bit by surprise. I didn't realize the bottom of the band was 2.49 and then it tapered out to 6mm at the top of the finger. My 5.8mm diamond framed by the prongs of the setting looks to be the perfect size for this wider band. If you are choosing a smaller diamond, just keep in mind the width of band when considering this ring. Also, if you have short fingers and plan to wear a wide wedding band as well, it might be a tight fit. I am planning to order a 3.5mm eternity ring to go with this. The Asscher U-Prong Diamond Eternity Ring In Platinum (2 Ctw) should fit perfectly next to and beneath my engagement ring. Time to email Anthony again!
It is very difficult finding kite set princess cut engagement rings online, yet alone in store. It's even harder to find pics of rings like this on fingers, with a certain carat weight, band width, etc. That said, if anyone out there is hoping to see pics of this ring with a 5.83 x 5.78mm princess cut diamond, on a size 5 finger, feel free to email me at Lykorish @ gmail
Hope this review helps out some brides-to-be!
