Brody Rice’s platinum, rose gold, and diamond floral ring

By Tina Snyder

After making a ring for his wife with a split shank design, Brody Rice of Brody Rice Designs in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, wanted to use the concept for this floral ring. Crafted with a jewelry design competition in mind, the platinum and 14k rose gold ring features 140 round brilliant-cut accent diamonds totaling 2.87 carats with a 2.02 carat center diamond.

“This ring did kind of test my patience,” admits Rice, who started working on its design in the fall of 2019. “Just finding time to mentally focus on the piece was difficult, but COVID-19 gave me the gift of time to work out the design details and how to produce some of the challenging parts of the ring.”
