The story of Henri Daussi rings is one of true passion for diamonds. It begins in Antwerp, Belgium, with a man named Jozef Loots. Jozef became a father in 1932, when he welcomed Henri Daussi into the world. The art of diamond cutting was a Loots family talent, and as Henri grew up, Jozef taught his son the secrets of the trade, just as his father had taught him. The Loots men sought the route to the most perfect gemstone. Henri’s skills grew to be incredibly well-respected, and he worked internationally with the finest jewelry companies. He was trusted with their largest and most valuable diamonds. It would almost seem that Henri Daussi lives for releasing the brilliance of diamonds. Fortunately for us, Henri decided to share his magic with the world, by founding the fine jewelry business we all know of by his name.
When Henri Daussi first began his life’s work, cutting diamonds was still a challenge for lapidaries globally. It is only possible to cut diamonds with other diamonds, because of their extreme strength. However, intrepid people love the hardest challenges, and Henri Daussi innovated the diamond-cutting technology of the last century by designing a new diamond polishing wheel, called a “scaif.” As the story goes, Henri cut the very first perfectly heart-shaped diamond, earning him critical acclaim, and propelling his career. Expertly crafted designs became synonymous with Henri Daussi diamond wedding bands and engagement rings.
Henri Daussi rings continue to be adored and revered as a “cut above the rest.” Still a Loots family trade, Henri’s grandsons, Jeff and Kristiaan, are now at the helm of the business. With consistently high quality and style, Henri Daussi makes gorgeous, hand-crafted engagement rings and wedding bands for the modern couple.
Here is a variety of our current favorites:
Platinum Wedding Bands
The weight and feel of platinum is well partnered with diamonds in wedding bands. Whether simply stated like this platinum and diamond half eternity band, or boldly blended such as in this four-stone cushion-cut diamond wedding ring, each with round cut halos, there is no denying that these two luxurious elements play perfectly off one another. For a look that is modern yet everlasting, we suggest Henri Daussi in platinum.
Gold Wedding Rings
White, yellow, or rose: Henri Daussi makes something lovely for your favorite gold tone. One classic style is this 18k rose gold wedding ring, which features 25 round diamonds set flush. Another artistic option is this scalloped 14k rose gold ring with pave diamonds, featuring an undulating edge set around each stone. The pink tone of rose gold infuses these rings with pure romance. If yellow gold is more your palette, we suggest this 14k wedding ring with 14 round diamonds. Its stones are set in alternating round and hexagon bezels, creating an interesting pattern that you won’t find anywhere else. 18k white gold appears in this simple half eternity, but also makes a creative statement in this twisted band featuring pave diamonds. Finding the perfect complement to your unique engagement ring is easy with so many gold Henri Daussi wedding bands.
Speaking of engagement rings, we simply must highlight these two gorgeous options that exemplify the careful handiwork of Henri Daussi. This 18k white gold engagement ring features a cushion cut diamond at 1.07 carats, with a pave halo including diamonds of .27 carats each, on a smooth band. It’s an exquisite piece. An even more glittery style is this 18k white gold cushion cut halo engagement ring, which includes over 2 carats of diamonds, from the 1.5 carat center stone, and inclusive of the halo and diamonds along the band as well. These are stunning, jaw-dropping engagement rings that showcase the striking talent of this designer.
Henri Daussi also steps outside of the box with uncommon shapes and stones that still make a pleasing match. For instance, this 14k yellow gold wedding band with diamonds and milgrain edging harkens back to vintage designs. The pairing of black diamonds in an 18k white gold wedding band with a setting of black rhodium plating is far from traditional, and yet remains alluring. For brides looking for something blue on their wedding day for good luck, Henri Daussi provides the beautiful solution of blue sapphires, mixed with diamonds, in this 14k white gold diamond and blue sapphire band. Finding a special design that speaks to you is easy with these diverse designs.
