Unheated Purple Sapphire Earrings

Purple sapphires are a beauty in their own right.

In the local jewellery scene, both online and in real life, we don’t see purple sapphires featured often enough. But it is a beautiful colour to wear. The jewellery piece should be designed and styled to fit the owner and the of course, the gemstone.

Design Brief:

Our client came through with a request for green and purple with wholly natural, unheated gemstones, but “I don’t want it to look too loud”. It was a design task that needed some planning.

Set in a classic style, with a combination of colours that are not only bold but in fact, complement each other. A lot of thought has gone into the design of this pair of earrings, to create that effortlessly simple yet classy look.

Design Outcome:

Featured in this pair of earrings is a pair of unheated purple sapphire, with green tsavorites and diamonds.

Against a backdrop of glistening diamonds, the rich hues of the tsavorite with the cool purples of the sapphires make for a pretty pair. Bold, yet so easily wearable.

Notes about Purple Sapphires:

Until we actually set our minds to sourcing for a pair of unheated purple sapphires, one would never know the difficulty in finding such a pair. Firstly, as most would know, Sapphires are more often seen in blue, red, pink or yellow. Purple sapphires are in fact, not as common. In addition, sourcing for an unheated, matching pair required a fair bit of time and luck.

Unheated purple sapphires are a beauty in their own right because a vast majority of purple sapphires available in the jewellery market is heated. Heating is done to improve colour saturation of a gemstone. That being said, purple is a saturated hue that is not easy to come by. So, you can imagine the delight in stumbling upon this pair of unheated purple sapphires.

Propose with our Signature Snowflake design

Featuring a unique and beautiful Sapphire in our Signature Snowflake design. In their mission in find a special engagement ring that will commemorate their time spent in Singapore, this lovely couple chanced upon our bespoke custom service of handcrafting fine quality jewellery.

Their request was to find a beautiful unheated, untreated sapphire that would catch the eye of this very lucky lady. As her now-fiancee had put it, they were looking for a sapphire that would match the color of her eyes. Alternatively, they were hoping to find a shade of blue that reminds them of the ocean.

As always, design discussion always begins with first understanding the aesthetic preferences of the client, and we match that with the centre stone in question.

This unheated sapphire, set in our Signature Snowflake design, with marquise and round diamonds, there is no better way to capture this Christmas proposal and wedding. Often, snowflake designs involve centre stones which are usually round in shape. However, when the centre piece is a cushion shape piece, the traditional snowflake using marquise diamonds would create awkward angles in ring.

Their next request was to have their wedding bands handcrafted by our master craftsmen. They were quite specific in having this memorable keepsake entirely handmade. In a hammer-effect, unlike most hammered-style bands found in retail stores, there is nothing orderly nor machine-accurate about this style.

At the year end of 2016, this lovely couple brought their wedding jewellery set back to San Francisco where they tied the knot in the San Francisco City Hall.
