It was truly a pleasure to work on this piece. Unheat green sapphires that are finely faceted, loupe clean, with such a beautiful intense hue are rare.
An engagement piece fitting for the lady of the hour. At Heritage Gems, our art pieces go through a period of idea brainstorming and discussions, working not only with our jewellery artisans but together with whom the piece is intended for. Every small detail of jewellery, not left out of consideration and design discussion. The process is an enjoyable process, both for us as jewellers, our clients and also our jewellery artisans.
Featured below is an assymetrically-designed engagement ring. The bride-to-be was searching for that special stone, set in a design that was uniquely her. She said she was keen on a sapphire, but not in the usual colours. She did not know during the initial stages of the gemstone / design consultation that she wanted a green sapphire. She was however, open to trying on several colours. After trying on several shades and colours, she found herself more drawn to our unique shade of green in this particular Sapphire. It was not long before her heart was set on this piece.
When it came to ring setting, she knew she did not want the usual halo design ring. So she told us and her partner: “Surprise me!”. And I’m pretty sure we did.
Design brainstorming ideas were tossed and Mr B. said he was quite sure Ms S. would want something that was somewhat unconventional, yet aesthetically pretty and definitely a design that was timeless. They did not want a design that was unique, overly bold / trendy , but would soon quickly become dated.
And so it was decided that an asymmetrical design was the best and most timeless way to spruce up a symmetrically-shaped gemstone.
