I've been meaning to post this studio for a few week. When I have more time I promise to do a more in depth pieces.
This is the downtown nyc studio of Jelena Behrend. I really admire her craftsmanship. Her work to me goes from turn of the century inspired to elegant steam punk. She welcomes visitors by appointment only. I think any ring she would create for a client will be a individual master pieces.

Asscher Cut Palladium Engagement Ring Hammered Palladium engagement ring solitaire is set with a 1 carat VS1 Asscher Cut diamond. The four prongs are 14k white gold for greatest strength. Size 6.5 pictured, available in any size $15,000.00 USD
This ring goes against the principles of this site so I'm breaking my own rules. I'm going to blame the fact I have a co-work that just got engaged with a 1-2 carat asscher cut diamond and platinum setting ring. The Asscher is really nice but the setting is little to conventional for my taste. It dose however look great on her and fits her tastes and thats what matters (مبروك to K & A). The ring shown above however is my style but the price tag is a bit ridiculous. Palladium is the cheapest of all the metals so your paying in theory mostly for the stone. Asscher are not cheap cuts. Here are some asscher cut diamond ring alternatives for those who don't have 15k. I know I don't.
