A stellar pair of Tahitian pearls and diamond cluster ear-drops. At 13mm diameter, this pair of Tahitian pearls are of AAA, fine quality with no blemish and very good reflective lustre. Specially sourced on a commissioned basis, this pair of perfectly round Tahitian pearls are of superb quality.
Factors that affect price of pearls:
- Roundness: Pearls are classified according to perfectly round, semi-round, oval, button, baroque, cercled (yes, you read that right. There is no spelling error – it is not circled).
- Shine/Lustre: Excellent mirror-like lustre, very good lustre, good lustre, average lustre and weak lustre.
- Surface: No imperfection/blemish, minimal imperfections, imperfections and important imperfections
Size also plays a big role in price point. Assuming all other assessing factors of quality being the same, the larger the pearl, the more expensive. For example, a 15mm pearl that is perfect round with very good lustre and no blemish would command a much higher price than a 15mm pearl that is semi-round, average lustre and has imperfections.
The pair of Tahitian pearl ear drops were commissioned to complement our client’s existing Tahitian baroque pearl necklace and we must say it is stunning.
The design of the pearl earrings were conceptualised from the natural environment of the ocean where oysters and corals are a part of the natural landscape.
At first glance, it seems the diamonds have been randomly clustered into a somewhat irregular shape. However, on closer look, one would realise there is actually symmetry to be found in the design and the placement of the diamonds. It makes for a very natural piece of art one would wear on herself.
Featuring 3 petite diamonds on each side of the Sapphire, tapering outwards to the ring shank, this is a beautiful romantic design that will match any wedding dress.
When it comes to customised pieces, exact and ideal dimensions and sizing is key in the pursuit of perfection – not for everybody or anyone else, but for the wearer.
How broad should the shank be? How large should each diamond be? Relative to the Centre Sapphire? How does the overall ring sit relative to the wearer’s finger?
Design is not simply about style and looks but pulling in together aesthetics, functionality, purpose and dimensions. That is the soul and beauty of customised works of art.

Garnets have good hardness and durability and come in various colours. The gemstone & jewellery industry dedicates a special mention to the Mandarin Spessatite, which ranges from a orange to yellow-orange to deep reddish-orange or a deep orange-red colour. And within this special class of garnets called the Mandarin Spessatites, there is a special locale that produces that signature Tangerine Orange colour. These are the ones from Namibia. In a class of its own.
Namibia produces Spessartites that come in a bright, fiery orange colour. Pure tangerine orange. Not too much yellow, not too much red. Just pure orange, like Tangerines.
It is the Manganese compound that gives the gemstone that bright orange colour. It is best to view Mandarin Spessartites in daylight, as viewing them in yellow light or store light might result in the Spessartite looking more warm in tone than it actually is, making it seem more “orange-y” than it really is.
Below is a stunning, customised set of Mandarin Spessartite jewellery.
What Mandarin Spessatites are famous for is their high lustre, brilliance and best of all, they are normally unheated and untreated. While Mandarin Spessatites do come with some natural inclusions visible to the eye, it is possible to source those that are relatively eye-clean.
In case we have missed you in our mailing list, we would like to extend the invitation to drop by our booth at the Singapore Jewellery and Gem Fair 2015 this Thursday (22 October) – Sunday (25 October) at the Marina Bay Sands Exhibition and Convention Centre.
We are located towards the back of the exhibition hall at booth H117.
Featured here is a yellow sapphire ring set in a 3D spiral concept in 18K white gold and diamonds. Unique, beautiful and an eye-catcher from all angles.
Each spoke is individually hand welded onto the frame of the ring, which is then followed by a diamond at the end of each spoke. Seated in the centre is a round yellow sapphire, akin to a budding flower.
