Egyptian myth suggests the band is based on the symbol Ouroboros. This looked like a snake or lizard that swallowed its own tail to form a circle. The first example of an Ouroboros appeared on the Tomb of Tutankhamun in 14th Century BC. They can also be traced back to a Tibetan buddhist endless knot. The Infinity symbol was created by mathematician John Wallis in 1655.

Recommended by a friend who had previously used us to create their bespoke jewellery solution. Dragana came to visit Max Diamonds with her own amazing 2ct asscher cut diamond, Needing help to design and make her perfect bespoke engagement ring. She wanted to create her own unique ring using her existing asscher cut diamond for the centre stone. Also to incorporating some shoulder stones that would continue and compliment the Art Deco look that an asscher diamond carries.

Bespoke CAD designer

Max Diamonds assisted Dragana to source diamonds of various different shapes. From bullet diamonds to coffin cut diamonds, this was to help in choosing the perfect look for her ring. We arranged the diamond arrays on plasticine to show how the shapes worked with each other. This enabled her to choose the right selection of stones. We narrowed these choices down to a couple of styles that the client liked. Then we used our bespoke CAD designer to create a series of CAD drawings. This was to demonstrate how the ring would start to take shape. These were then shared with the client for appraisal.
