A windlass is a pulley device that sailors use to lift heavy objects from the depths. And the Windlass Ring shares that name because it symbolizes those moments in life when we have to go deep and bring the weighty stuff of our past to the surface so we can move forward. This meaningful and intricately designed piece features two pairs of marquise and round cut diamond accents that rise like waves toward the emerald cut diamond of your choice. Here's your chance to wear the ring that is simultaneously a statement and a conclusion.
Emerald cut focal diamond of your choice.

This design features a closed basket setting with four prongs on a delicate 1.2mm band—available in platinum or 14k solid yellow, white or rose gold.
The band is accented by two (4x2mm) marquise, and two (1mm) round white diamonds, one of each on each side of the focal stone.
Melanie prefers a long slender em cut for this design.
All accent diamonds are SI clarity and G+ color.
We handcraft each piece with responsibly sourced 14k gold and ethically sourced stones.
We’re here to help you find your ring size! Ring sizing is not universal. We strongly suggest that you capture your size with this tool:
- The Perfect Fit Sizer—We highly recommend this tool. It’s a metal sizer that is made in the same width as the ring you plan to order and the best way to ensure that your jewelry will fit perfectly on the first try. (When you’re done, you can return the Perfect Fit Sizer to us so we can recycle it, and we’ll refund you for the value of your sizer minus shipping.) Order your Perfect Fit Sizer here.
