Twist platinum and diamond hammered engagement ring with fitted wedding band

Contrasting textures give this bespoke platinum and diamond Twist engagement and wedding ring set a unique appeal. The engagement ring has been hammered to create a dimpled, glittering surface texture and is set with a round brilliant-cut white diamond, while the wedding band has a smooth surface and is polished to a bright mirror polish.

Each Twist ring is formed from a continuous piece of hand-forged metal that twists around the finger to form an open ring with tapered ends. The engagement ring is set with a round brilliant-cut white diamond, which is cupped in an open bezel formed by one end of the ring. The other end narrows to a delicate flick. The matching fitted wedding is shaped to match the curves of the engagement ring perfectly and the two rings interlock to be worn together.

This modern platinum engagement and wedding ring set is created by hand-forging platinum bar to taper and form it. Hand-forging is a centuries-old method of hammering metal to alter its thickness and shape. The hammering process hardens metal and allows us to create designs with a delicate appearance that belies their exceptional strength and resilience.
