An 1883 English folklore recounts that the old item provided protection for the baby to come and for good luck.
Have you recently inherited some of your mother’s or grandparents’ older jewellery? Would you like to wear it as a part of your “something old, something new”? A piece of jewellery that you could both on your wedding day and even after your wedding? Something you could wear daily or even on special occasions?
Older styles of jewellery, while it has its appeal, may not be as easy to wear with apparel of modern, contemporary styles. And sometimes, it requires a little more than a simple cleaning job at your local jeweller.

A Blue Spinel engagement is on trend and here to stay.
What is not to love about the Blue Spinel? It is a hardy piece of rock, and comes in beautiful shades of light blue, blue-grey, steel blue, midnight blue. Blue spinels come in shades of blue typically soothing to the eye. No, it is not that excessive pop of colour one typically sees in a tanzanite or a heated sapphire. Instead, it is a gentle, calming blue that brings joy to the eyes and if it’s by Heritage Gems, it would be a colour one would enjoy even 30 years later.
The lustre, fire and brilliance of the spinel is not inferior to the sapphire. In fact, spinels have often been mistaken for fine quality sapphires. Eye-clean, good lustre, top quality spinels are less common.
Below is stone that is not as oval as the client would have preferred. Hence, after our design discussion, we crafted a beautiful piece for the lady, who preferred a more elongated oval shape for the overall look of the ring. Notice that this is not a simple halo we have designed. The diamonds on the halo are of graduating sizes.

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.

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.
