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.
There is something soothing about looking into the green of an emerald. In a class of its own, wearing an emerald ring instantly lends class and sophistication to its wearer. Typical of colombian emeralds, the glow of green is a very soothing, calming deep green.
Emeralds are usually heavily included. Hence, finding one that is as eye-clean as possible such that it does not impede on the lustre of the gem can be tricky and difficult.
Our client wanted to set a colombian emerald in a beautiful vintage style setting, set in 18K white gold. Truly pretty!

Contrary to mainstream opinion, coloured gem engagement rings is only for the privileged few. Fine quality precious gemstones are rare and not easily available. If one has a specific colour/shade/hue in mind, the waitlist to lay your hands on an ideal gem could be several months, sometimes close to a year. If your jeweller is actively searching the market for you, it may take a slightly shorter timeframe.
Nonetheless, buying that ideal precious gem is not something that you can pick off a chart with the corresponding colour grading, clarity grading as you would a diamond.
An unusual and rare piece of Colombian emerald in the perfect deep blue-green so highly prized in emeralds, finely crafted into a very elegant timeless engagement ring.
For those familiar with emeralds, it is generally accepted in the market that emeralds are almost never eye-clean. However, this particular piece is truly an exception. It is so incredibly clear and transparent, yet displays such an intense rich blue-green colour. A rare find.
