Ring Tracking: Shawn Huang

Scanning the diamond into the 3D World!

The Brellia that Shawn purchased is then placed into the diamond scanner, where a laser traces the entire diamond, down to each proportion and facet. This is done so that the ring can be modeled around the diamond. The advantage is that we have a clear view up to 95% accuracy of how the finished ring product would look like with his own diamond in a 3D world!

Creating the 3D Model

As you can see, the diamond in the 3D environment is the exact diamond Shawn purchased, the 3D model is designed around the diamond, as you can see in the video linked at the top of the blog page. This means we have full control of the entire ring in contrast to Shawn's diamond. The width is adjusted to create the slender look of the ring, the prongs is adjusted to a safe and secure size, not too big nor small.

Creating the Wax Model

After the 3D model is finalized, the wax model is produced, where we check for the proportions and safety of the ring in the real world.

Final Product

The final ring is produced in white gold for another check, before the diamond is then set into the ring.

And there we have it, Shawn's double prong 18kt white gold solitaire ring, set with one of the rarest diamond beauties, the Cushion Brellia.
