The Kensington Story

The Kensington is a rare combination of a practical, wearable design and lacy detail. The center diamond is securely set in a full bezel rim with a low profile for ease of wear. Think tight fitting winter gloves- smooth, no resistance, in and out. The smooth outer rim surrounding the diamond fully protects it’s more sensitive outer edge. The bezel also focuses all attention on the diamond and its icy white brilliance. An additional benefit of the bezel rim is that it makes whatever size diamond we put into the ring look like the next larger size. For instance, a 1 carat diamond looks like a 1 ¼ carat diamond. Twenty small diamonds grace the sides of the Kensington. They are recessed bead set for security and are bright and sparkly white to blend with the cool white of platinum or 18K white gold.

Some lacy designs can have over done detail where if the designer had simply backed off a bit it would have been better. Cross is highly sensitive to this issue and we design with restraint. Of all of our open pierced work detail rings, Kensington is our most reserved. From the top view it has really nice classic detailing reminiscent of the Late Edwardian and Art Deco periods of jewelry design. The front and back views show a shape similar to a script letter L which beautifully and simply fills the space between diamonds. This ring is light, airy, and feminine- yet solidly built for a lifetime of love.
