Cartier 1895 reproduction with 1.5ct Asha center, and matching wedding band


"... I love my BTD Cartier Repro setting! 
It is just stunning! 
I have actually had 3 people say that my ring is the most beautiful ring that they have EVER seen!"

 
- Customer Testimonial


"I have just received my ring and it is amazing! 
 … it is more beautiful in reality than any photograph could capture. WOW! “
 
- Customer Testimonial


Our reproduction is based on an 1895 Cartier ring for round center stones, with a few updates to build upon the original. Our reproduction provides a stunning look whereby the upper half of the ring appears to be made almost completely out of diamond.This effect is done by minimizing the metal and delicately setting 10, top quality 2.2mm (.45ctw) natural white diamonds via bead setting (we use extremely well cut, VS1-VS2, F-G color natural diamonds).

The end result is a ring that has become one of the best selling rings we've made to date (and thats saying a lot, considering how well our 1922 Cartier reproduction did!)

We've also added an interior comfort fit shank, and a new peg head with claw prongs to accentuate the round center stone.  Because of the new style peg head, this reproduction is 'band friendly' and provides a flush fit for most wedding bands, including our matching wedding band designed expressly for this reproduction. 

Update:  This ring is offered only in palladium and platinum.  We are no longer offering this ring in white gold any more because palladium has proven to be a superior option.  We highly recommend the palladium, it is our metal of choice as it is a pure metal and member of the platinum family, naturally white, hypoallergenic, stronger than platinum, and yet at the price of white gold.  (And it helps to realize that not many years ago, palladium was twice as expensive as platinum).   

1895 Cartier reproduction with matching wedding band...1ctw natural diamond

Wedding Set options:  If you are interested in creating a knockout look with 1ctw of natural diamonds on your finger, consider adding the .55ctw matching wedding band.  The band sets flush, and can be used on either (or both) sides of the ring.  

Details regarding the matching wedding band for this Cartier reproduction ring are here.

 

Ring Shank Details:

  • 10 matched and well-cut natural diamonds, 5 on each side of the ring

  • 10 x 2.2mm natural, well-cut VS1-VS2/F-G side round diamonds,
    total carat weight of .45ctw

  • Diamonds are '2 bead bright set', same exact style as done on the original ring

  • Shank is round, not Euro, in keeping with the original ring
    Ring width:
      3mm

Center Prong Details:

Uses an 8 prong head with claw prong finish - medium prong height for ease of wear.
This ring is suitable for 1ct - 3ct Round centers, and 1.5ct - 3ct Princess centers.

We are now making this ring available in pure 95% palladium.  Palladium is a platinum family metal and if you want the benefits of platinum (including hypoallergenic and no need for rhodium plating), but at white gold pricing, this may be the metal for you.  Please note that palladium's weight is similar to white gold, it does not have the hefty feel of platinum.  More info on palladium can be found here
