One of the prettiest hues of unheated blue Sapphire in our inventory. An engagement ring featuring a shade of blue very slightly lighter than cornflower blue. However, it is a more vibrant blue than light blue sapphires.
With all its beautiful facets visible from the table face of the gemstone, it is not difficult to fall in love with this beauty.
Unheated blue sapphires in this quality is rare as it is not only well-faceted, with an even colour distribution (no colour-zones), but also loupe-clean. How difficult is it exactly, to find a beautiful unheated blue sapphire? Below is a classification table for reference. In terms of absolute figures, the scenario could be as follows: Out of 1000 Sapphires that are mined from earth, only 100 are unheated. And of the 100 that are unheated, only approximately 5 unheated Sapphires are considered aesthetically pleasing. And these figures are based on a worldwide, international level of availability, not just in Singapore.
What we aim to offer our clients are gemstones in Category D and that is exactly what this Sapphire is.
Set in 18K white gold, this blue beauty looks stunning and elegant seated next to the colourless sparkle of the diamond.
Asymmetrical Symmetrical Design:
A note on design: while a simple design such as this could appear seemingly easy to create, it is something best left in the hands of an experienced artisanal craftsman. Why so? With the diamonds on asymmetrical placement, any gold prong work and diamond placement that is out of alignment becomes very instantly obvious to the eye. Our team of craftsmen have however managed to achieve symmetrical asymmetry.

Beautiful vintage style engagement rings never fail to evoke romantic feelings.
Our client very graciously shared her wedding day photos and nothing says love better than a couple with their megawatt smiles, vintage inspired engagement ring and a stunning lace dress.
Beautiful blue Spinels are extremely rare. Yes, equally as rare as the unheated blue sapphire. Blue spinels and most other Spinels are typically non-treated and non-heated. The unique feature about the blue spinel is that it has a very magnetic shade of blue, one that seemingly grows on you rather than simply catching your eye at the first instance. Spinels have long been mistaken for sapphires, or Corundums, because its lustre and brilliance quite resembles the Sapphires.
It’s nice to be able to create your own history and story by customising a vintage styled engagement ring because there’s just something alluring and romantic about it. They make for great photos as well!

Wanting to redesign your old jewellery into new? Remodelling your old jewellery is easier than you think. There is special meaning in keeping an inheritance, set in a new style to keep with the times.
“Something old, Something new, Something borrowed, Something blue, And a silver six pence in her shoe”
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. Remodelling your old jewellery or upcycling your old jewellery is the perfect way to update a special memento. It is a way of keeping a part of you that you cherish, in a style that is relevant to you. Keep
After redesigning, this pieces looks so much fresher and reminds one of Spring. Not at all ostentatious, dressy enough for an occasion, yet, simple enough for an evening out.
Who ever said wearing Jade pieces needs to look dated or old? 😉

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.
