A recently commissioned blue spinel engagement ring from a client based in Ireland. The couple had travelled to Asia and gotten in touch about commissioning a special piece to commemorate their engagement.
Simple in style, yet so unique in colour (both the gem in its own right and also when paired with the Rose Gold metalwork). Handcrafted right here in our workshop in our Singapore, a design that looks beguilingly simple, yet requires experienced craftsmanship and skill to craft.

To complete the piece, we top it off with a most unique, fine quality Blue Spinel. In round brilliant cut, loupe-clean, with a fine quality lustre that make this piece shine bright like a diamond. Commercial quality blue spinels are fairly easily found in a high-street jewellery shop. However, stunning blue spinels like these are reserved for the lucky few.
Looking at the images closely, it is easy to notice that Blue Spinels have a unique quality in that they appear to take on slightly different hues under different lighting conditions. For this particular Spinel, it appears slightly violet in natural daylight.
Yet the grey undertone of this Blue Spinel becomes a little more obvious on an overcast day.
