A bold and original solitaire engagement ring design by Mark Schneider. The smooth, wide shank dips in a dramatic V at the top of the shank. The center stone is secured in a channel style setting, suspended in the midst of the V. This unique setting allows the full silhouette of the stone to be visible from the side. It also allows more light to reach the bottom of the stone, adding to its sparkle. A single round brilliant accent diamond is set in a “secret heart” bezel near the bottom corner of the shank.
