May Birthstone Emerald Earrings

Emeralds are the birthstones of May babies. Featured below is a pair of beautiful Emerald May birthstone earrings with fairly high levels of transparency, lustre and cleanliness, all of which, is rare to find in a certified matching pair of insignificantly oiled Emeralds.

Level of inclusions in Emeralds:

As most gemstone and jewellery lovers are possibly aware, the level of inclusions in an Emerald gem is something every Emerald lover will have to accept. Emeralds are a naturally highly-included gemstone. It is nearly impossible for an Emerald to be loupe-clean. Having said this though, a fairly eye-clean, highly-transparent Emerald is highly prized. The transparency of a gemstone is assessed by the absence of any type of cloudiness, “milkiness”, and inclusions within the gem. An example of a gem that almost always and usually exhibits high levels of transparency is the Tanzanite. One could almost describe the transparency level of a Tanzanite as being “glass-like”.

Practical longevity in design aesthetic:

Seen below is an exquisite pair of May Birthstone Emerald earrings. If you have been following us for awhile, you would have realised that we lean towards; and prefer creating jewellery with designs that have practical longevity. Now, this does not mean boring. It means creating pieces that one could wear with almost anything and for any occasion, day and night. In trying to create designs that do not date quickly – this means designs putting ourselves in the mindframe of our client and hearing their design preference and needs. Practical longevity means different things to different people. For some, it could mean having a design that they could see themselves gifting it to their daughters or sons. For others, it could be setting it in a design that goes well with most of their apparel in the their wardrobe. Often times, our designs transcends time and generations.

We marvel at that soft luminous glow emanating from the emeralds. Photos below are taken in natural daylight, with no photo edits.

Rarity:

Set in a petite floral-esque design, a pair of certified insignificant-oiled Emerald earrings is rare and not easy to source. With more focus on diamonds and emeralds and less on gold work, the final piece is a sight for sore-eyes.

Imperial Topaz Gold Ring

What is the most valuable type of Topaz?

Yes, you’ve guessed right. It is the Imperial Topaz, which typically comes in shades of rich golden yellow, orange, (think sunset colours), to the most prized colour of Imperial Topaz: the pink-red, red hues.

A request came from a client to have a matching Imperial Topaz ring to her current pair of Imperial Topaz earrings (also crafted in-house, by yours truly).

So, we set about sourcing a matching piece of Imperial Topaz for her.

Imperial Topaz Ring in 18K Natural Gold
Golden Sunset colour of the Imperial Topaz

We had crafted this beautiful golden sunset-hued Imperial Topaz in our in-house blend of natural gold, with gold purity at 18K (750). Making this ring in the traditional rich shade of 18K Yellow Gold would have been too much of a clash of gold hues with the centre Imperial Topaz.

Prices of Imperial Topaz

Often times, people are of the impression that the Topaz is an easily available, abundantly occurring, hence low-cost gemstone. This is however not at all true. Topazes come in several colours, including deep blue, teal, Swiss blue (bright vivid candy blue), light brown, brown-grey, taupe tones, as well as colour-less. Topazes in all the above-mentioned shades are not overly pricey and can be had for an affordable price. Prices of Imperial Topaz in a nice warm yellow colour for sizes below 5cts can range between USD 600 – 800/ct.

The joy in appreciating the beauty of the Topaz is that it is a naturally eye-clean and usually loupe-clean gemstone.

Imperial Topaz which are of a beautiful golden sunset colour and also those with orange / peach undertones, well-cut pieces will easily fetch prices between USD 900 – 1200/ct in sizes under 5cts.

Additionally, Imperial Topaz in the most rare colours of red and pink-reds will easily fetch prices of USD 3500 and upwards. Sizes above 5 cts are rarely seen.

Natural or Non-natural?

Most Blue and Brown Topazes seen in commercial shops are very often irradiated or heat treated to achieve these shades / colours. However, true Imperial Topazes are never irradiated / heat treated / chemical treated in any way. Hence the term “Imperial Topaz” is reserved strictly for Topaz in that distinctive golden yellow, sunset yellow, red and pink Topazes that are 100% natural with no heating, chemical treatment or irradiation.

Our client did not want for diamonds on her beautiful ring so instead, we decided to craft a ring for her showcasing a beautiful and elegant gallery (notice the curved, flower petal structure on the side view of the ring below the centre Topaz).

Custom blend 18K Beige Gold Engagement Ring Singapore

In our Signature Wire Wrap design, comes this one of a kind unheated ruby ring. Have a quick look on Google Images when one searches ruby ring and it is not difficult to see ruby ring being typically designed in yellow gold.

Some might feel that the rich red hues of pigeon blood rubies clashes with the saturated cast of the typical rich yellow gold.

Hence came the request for a ruby ring set in our in-house custom blended 18K Beige Gold, which is a more subtle natural tone of yellow, enhancing the rich red hue of the ruby (instead of taking the attention away from the ruby), paired with white gold to create a duo-tone gold ring design.

Our Signature Wire Wrap design is unlike any other. A fairly intricate design to create but not overly fussy a design for a ring to be worn regularly.

The end result was a beautiful unheated ruby proposal ring, set in the most unique design that is aesthetically pretty and not OTT. Truly a bespoke proposal ring that she will not say no to!

Anniversary Ring in Organic Style (Singapore)

A ring that was customised as a wedding anniversary gift with 3 coloured diamonds to signify the couple’s 3 children.

A style that is unique, yet understated and wearable daily with somewhat of a cool factor and definitely not something off-the-shelf. The lady wanted a design that symbolised the pure, natural love for her family, husband and children, hence the organic-styled design of this ring. As with any family dynamics, there is always undulating up and downs symbolised by the uneven texture of this ring. But at the end of the day, everything comes full circle, symbolised by the circle of this ring.

What is special about this ring is that no 2 sides or faces about this ring is remotely the same.
