Diamonds have long been a symbol of timeless elegance and enduring love. Yet, even among these precious gems, there are diamonds that stand apart as truly exceptional, deserving of a design that matches their unique brilliance.
At Carter's Collective Fine Jewelry, we pride ourselves on curating diamonds that are one-of-a-kind, and ourBespoke Collection is a testament to our commitment to creating exclusive, custom designs that celebrate the individuality of each diamond. Let's take a closer look at some of the stunning creations in our Bespoke Collection and the stories behind their designs.
This exquisite ring features an emerald-cut diamond surrounded by baguette-cut diamonds, set in a sleek bezel with a satin finish. The elongated shape of the emerald-cut diamond adds a unique and captivating aspect to the design. The meticulous attention to detail and the satin finish give this ring a timeless and sophisticated charm.
Chae's Notes: "Emeralds are usually proportionally cut, but I have a love affair with super long emeralds- the longer, the better! When I saw this loose emerald cut diamond, all I could see was framing it in a straight block style baguettes. We changed the design half a dozen times and turned everything every way it could face, but finally landed on a flush set bezel style. The finish is deserving of a chef's kiss on this one of a kind piece!"
This enchanting engagement ring features a pear-shaped center diamond flanked by two step-cut pear side stones, all set in a platinum setting. The addition of a diamond under-halo around each pear diamond adds a touch of timeless elegance to this stunning piece.
Chae's Notes: "I met the pear-shaped center diamond first, at an antique jewelry show! I love all diamond shapes, but pear has a special place in my heart. At the show, I began looking for matched diamonds of the same cut and size to create into bands but the step-cut, pear side stone duo caught my eye. I started imagining a three-stone design for these antique, pear-cut diamonds, and asked myself 'what details would I want for my dream engagement ring?' So I chose a platinum setting for the center pear to keep its bright, white color and included a diamond under-halo wrapped around each pear diamond... Every detail I would want for my own engagement ring!"
This ring showcases a captivating salt and pepper diamond set in a simple yet elegant Dahlia setting. The choice to keep the setting minimalistic allows the unique beauty of the salt and pepper diamond to shine through, making it a true statement piece for someone equally unique and special.
Blake's Notes: "I am obsessed with this salt and pepper ring! It is super tough to find a salt and pepper diamond that still has beautiful fire and an excellent cut. With the diamond being so unique, I decided to keep it the focal point and made the setting itself fairly simple, opting for our Dahlia setting. To keep it fun, I also gave it a brushed finish (my favorite). I can't wait for this ring to go to someone just as unique and special as it is."
This enchanting ring features an antique pear-shaped diamond with a delicate halo and a split shank design that accentuates the diamond's unique shape. The result is a graceful and elegant piece that captures the essence of timeless beauty.
Chae's Notes: "I found this beautiful antique pear-shaped diamond and couldn't leave without her. She came back to Carter's as a loose diamond, and we couldn't think of the perfect ring to design around this marquise diamond for over a year. Inspired by our Petunia setting, we landed on a very dainty halo surrounding the antique marquise and added the split variation to accentuate the elongation of the diamond."
This unique engagement ring showcases a marquise-cut diamond in a custom bezel setting. The wider gold band adds a touch of flair and dimension, making it a standout piece both on its own and when stacked with other bands.
Chae's Notes: "I love a bezel-set engagement ring, but I rarely set diamonds I find for the bespoke collection in bezels. It's a commitment to encase a diamond in a custom bezel because of its unique measurements, especially this fun marquise! We added a wider than normal gold side to this custom ring to add a pop of metal and add dimension when stacking bands. It really pops on your hand solo, but man you should see it with stackables!"
