A proposal ring does not have to be blue.
Pastel pinks make for pretty and romantic engagement rings. Seen here is a round, unheat pastel pink sapphire, flanked by 4 pieces round diamonds set in a wave design with a heart-shape detailing on the cross-section. In 18K white gold.
Petite and dainty yet fuss-free, this design is evergreen which allows most of the attention to be focussed on the unheat pink sapphire.
Pink Tourmalines make for great jewellery. Ranking 7-7.5 on the MOHs hardness scale, tourmalines can be set into rings, earrings, pendants and even bracelets.
Let us not get confused with the MOHs hardness scale. For example, diamonds that rank a sturdy “10” on the hardness scale, does not mean that the diamond is invincible. It merely means that it is scratch-proof. Diamonds are however, not chip-proof or break-proof. The MOHs hardness scale merely shows the ability of a certain material/mineral to scratch another softer material/mineral. This means that if one were to bring a hammer down on a diamond or say knock a diamond on a fairly hard material or at a sharp angle (perhaps a metal/stainless steel joining commonly found around the house), that diamond can be chipped or crack lines can occur.
Below is a pair of oval shaped Pink Tourmalines set into a modern, yet stunning piece of art great for regular wear. And no, we do not require a halo of diamonds surrounding the centre gem for every piece of jewellery we create.
With Princess cut diamonds totalling close to 1 ct in total weight, this pair of earrings is also created as part of bridal jewellery set.

A special pair of pyrope-almandine garnet ear drops. Set in 18K white gold with a nice mix of pear shapes, marquise and round diamonds, we create a very pretty pair of earrings in a romantic style.
This pair of earrings was created as a part of a bride’s wedding fine jewellery set, to be worn with the bridal gown. Set in a design that is special enough to be worn with her bridal gown on the actual day, yet not overly complicated that it cannot be worn more frequently thereafter, brainstorming such a design requires the art of intricate balance.
If you like a red gemstone, no need to yearn for a ruby (heat or unheat). The price of a unheated ruby is out-of-reach for most. So, will one settle for a heated ruby? Why would you? The price of a heated ruby is still far more pricey than most or all other types of red gemstones which are unheat, untreated and 100% natural. So why pay the high price for a gemstone that is heated, ruby or otherwise?
Below is a list of red gemstones that are usually available as an unheated, untreated and 100% natural gemstone:
- Red Garnet
- Rhodolite Garnets (exist often in shades of purple or magenta, similar to the colour of wine, but they do come in red hues as well)
- Red Beryl
- Red Spinel
With the use of fancy shape diamonds, one is assured that it is an entirely customised piece of art. Hardly seen in your typical off-the-shelf fine jewellery, fancy shape diamonds help to create a piece of wearable art that is uniquely yours.
A unique colour-change sapphire. A blue sapphire with hint of sea green in daylight which shifts to purplish red in incandescent light. Though heated, this is definitely a sight to behold.
Set in a duo-tone 18K yellow gold and white gold setting, with diamonds aligned in a lotus-flower setting, this engagement ring is a feminine, remarkable beauty.
Below is how the sapphire looks like in incandescent lighting:
This is the feedback from our client, who had never actually seen the stone in person during the decision making process. But with the help of a very dedicated fiancé and sister, we were able to create her dream engagement ring.
