This set of wedding bands in Palladium (a precious metal in the platinum family) was requested by a customer of one of my clients. One of the betrothed was a race car driver, and they wanted a specific tire tread on the wedding bands. CAD to the rescue!
This would have been an astoundingly difficult project without the tools afforded by CAD software, but even so it was a bit of a challenge. I had to duplicate the tire tread, and then calculate how to get an even repeat across the bands, for two different sized rings. One ring had a half-carat Diamond set into it, and the other had colored diamonds sprinkled over the top half.
These kinds of projects are always fun, as it is always great to have someone suggest something I would never have thought of and then work together to create something that reflects the vision that they had when they first conceived of the project.
Palladium is a wonderful meta to use as well, it is similar to Platinum but not quite as heavy and is about half the price, which actually makes it cheaper to use than gold. It is as non-reactive as Platinum, and wears very well, so if you are looking to make something in white gold, you may want to consider Palladium instead.
The price listed below is for the two sets of bands, including the diamonds.
