Comment: According to David Shara, president of Optimum Diamonds “AJ and I designed the engagement and wedding rings together in collaboration. “He wanted a timeless, classic design that was able to incorporate natural, fancy-colored diamonds into the design in a subtle and elegant manner. I recommended the 5-carat cushion-cut center stone to be accentuated by pink diamonds from the famed Argyle Diamond Mine in Australia. We decided on a very refined balance of antique and modern to showcase the amazing cushion-cut diamond.” The pink diamonds can be seen in Katherine’s beautiful rose gold wedding ring.
