Comparison of Spinel quality

If you’ve been searching for coloured gemstones at various gem and jewellery stores, you might have wondered why some stones appear more sleepy than some and you wonder if you might have remembered them incorrectly especially when comparison takes place across different stores and often, on different days and times.

Below we share a video of 2 spinels taken using the same iPhone, taken in succession on the same day. With the first 2 frames showing 2 individual stones and the last frame showing both Spinels taken in the same frame.

Spinel #A

On initial comparison, the first Spinel, Spinel A appears well-cut, with good clarity and appears to be decently lively looking. Imagine you see this gem in person at a jeweller during your search process and being quoted $X for this piece.

spinel #B

Separately, you view Spinel #2, Spinel B, on a different day or perhaps on the same day, but at a different time, from a different jeweller. This piece does appear to be more lively. Although, based on memory, you were pretty sure the first piece was probably as lively and probably had as much sparkle as the 2nd piece you are currently seeing. And when you ask for the price on this 2nd piece, you are told a price that is considerably higher than the first. You then begin to wonder if you’re being fleeced.

Searching for your coloured gemstone of choice can seem daunting at first, but if you’re in the right hands, it is in fact a fun and educational process.

Comparing both Spinels

Now, in fact, when you watch both pieces taken in the same video (see last frame), placed side-by-side, it becomes instantly apparent the difference in sparkle, lustre and brilliance between both pieces.

A fine quality coloured gemstone with lively appearance will seem to have light radiating from within the gem. At some points, depending on light angles, fine quality coloured stones can be as sparkly as a diamond!

Comparison in lustre and brilliance between 2 spinels.

Mysterious Green Sapphire Proposal Ring

They came to us looking for a bespoke yet uniquely designed engagement ring. The main request was that the gem had to be an unheated sapphire. Not only does the centre gem have to be one-of-kind, the design must not only be special, yet classy.

The customisation process for this endearing green sapphire ring

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. 

A bespoke engagement ring 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. It is an enjoyable process, both for us as jewellers, our clients and also our jewellery artisans. 

Featured below is an assymetrically-designed unheated green sapphire 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. “Surprise me!”, she said. And I’m pretty sure we did. 

What design options did we suggest? – Design consultation needs

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. The final product was a a dreamy, mysterious green sapphire engagement ring.

At Heritage Gems, our customisation process of engagement rings and significant occasion jewellery is never taken lightly.

If you’d like for us to create a unique yet charming proposal ring that she cannot say no to, drop us an email at heritagegems@gmail.com or better yet, give us a call on 97716923.

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).

What exactly is the Mandarin Spessatite?

What exactly is the Mandarin Spessatite and how rare is it? Most people mistake a garnet to be in a typical red or reddish brown tones. However, the garnet family is fairly large. Some examples of garnets used in fine jewellery:

Tsavorite garnets (Green colour)
Malaia garnets (pink, peach, salmon, pink-purple colours)
Demantoid garnets (green, olive green, green-yellow colours)
Rhodolite garnets (berry, wine colours)
Mandarin garnets (orange, yellow-orange, orange-brown, reddish-orange colours)

The base colour of Mandarin Spessatites is orange, often times, with a yellow, brown or red modifier. Resulting in a colour that is yellowish-orange, orange with brown overtone or orange with red overtone. These colours can look nice but the best colours of the Mandarin garnets come in pure orange, with very little hint of any secondary modifier, resulting in people/consumers requesting for a “fanta” orange. Meaning the orange seen in the actual orange fruit. A zesty, bright, fiery orange. The area in Namibia that produced this brilliant, zesty, fiery “fanta” orange Spessatite was quickly mined and depleted in a very short span of 5 years. This mine is now closed. And with that, the production of “fanta” orange has also ceased, driving the prices for “fanta” orange through the roof, making this shade of orange the most prized hue in Mandarin garnets.

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.

Round Sapphire Engagement Ring Singapore

Read client’s review below at the end of this post for their experience on making a bespoke piece of jewellery with Heritage Gems Singapore!

Coloured gemstones provide such delight to its owner. Because colour is so subjective to each individual, there is no such thing as a colour that is unattractive.

Blue sapphires in a midnight royal blue are as mesmerising as they are mysterious. As with all coloured gemstone jewellery, pick a colour that speaks to you.

Featured below is a heated round blue sapphire ring that is elegant, simple and easy to match with any outfit! Being an engagement ring, this piece has been designed for daily-wear with fuss-free embedded side diamonds. Diamonds are there to add to that spark of the ring but not detract attention away from the beauty of the Sapphire. Such is the beauty of customised pieces.

Set in 18K White Gold.

Unheated Sapphire and Diamond Encrusted Ring

Unheated vivid blue sapphires. There is something very elegant about a Sapphire engagement ring. In ancient cultures and medieval times, sapphires were the preferred choice with medieval royalty and clergy as it symbolises honesty and wisdom. As an engagement ring, blue symbolises faithfulness and sincerity.

In assessing sapphires, there is no standardised quality-grading system, but it is very rare to find an unheated sapphire without inclusions.

When in search of an unheated Sapphire, it is common to find local jewellers in Singapore and foreign jewellery brands who will term or market their Sapphires to be natural (read: natural, but heated). 

Some jewellers might market Sapphires or gemstones as natural when the gem is actually heated, or has undergone some form of heat process. In fact, in the gem and jewellery industry, a natural gemstone or Sapphire, when indicated as natural, is understood or assumed to be unheated.

So, for a consumers’ piece of mind, they should be sure to ask their jeweller this question point-blank: Is this gem or Sapphire heated? Or gone through any form of treatment? A reputable jeweller will disclose whether a natural Sapphire in question is in fact, heated or unheated.

These questions are important for the buyer as it determines the price you pay.

Take for example, you are at a shop. And you see 2 sapphires that look visually similar in terms of quality. Meaning: both pieces are eye-clean, both are well-cut, both have even colour distribution, both have no areas of excessive shadows or “windows”. However, one piece is unheated and the other is heated. Which will be sold at a premium? In most instances, it will be the unheated gem that is being sold at higher price. 

Price of a heated Sapphire can be as low as half or even at a 60% discount to the price of a visually stunning unheated Sapphire.

Below features a 1ct unheated Sapphire and Diamond ring. This vivid blue Sapphire is set in a stunning diamond encrusted goldwork throughout the ring. Designed to be a seamless nesting concept, this ring design can be paired with wedding band without having excessive gaps between the engagement ring and wedding band.

Tahitian Pearl and Diamond Ear Drops

A stellar pair of Tahitian pearls and diamond cluster ear-drops. At 13mm diameter, this pair of Tahitian pearls are of AAA, fine quality with no blemish and very good reflective lustre. Specially sourced on a commissioned basis, this pair of perfectly round Tahitian pearls are of superb quality.

Factors that affect price of pearls:

  • Roundness: Pearls are classified according to perfectly round, semi-round, oval, button, baroque, cercled (yes, you read that right. There is no spelling error – it is not circled).
  • Shine/Lustre: Excellent mirror-like lustre, very good lustre, good lustre, average lustre and weak lustre.
  • Surface: No imperfection/blemish, minimal imperfections, imperfections and important imperfections

 

Size also plays a big role in price point. Assuming all other assessing factors of quality being the same, the larger the pearl, the more expensive. For example, a 15mm pearl that is perfect round with very good lustre and no blemish would command a much higher price than a 15mm pearl that is semi-round, average lustre and has imperfections.

The pair of Tahitian pearl ear drops were commissioned to complement our client’s existing Tahitian baroque pearl necklace and we must say it is stunning.

The design of the pearl earrings were conceptualised from the natural environment of the ocean where oysters and corals are a part of the natural landscape.

At first glance, it seems the diamonds have been randomly clustered into a somewhat irregular shape. However, on closer look, one would realise there is actually symmetry to be found in the design and the placement of the diamonds. It makes for a very natural piece of art one would wear on herself.

Transform your jewellery: Ruby to Garnet Ring

We’ve had a client come to us, looking to change his centre gemstone from its existing ruby cabochon to another suitable gemstone. It is in fact, often easier to change the design of the ring, keeping intact the feature gemstone. However, the original design of this ring made it simple enough to find a suitable replacement gemstone that was similar in shape and size so that they owner could enjoy a new look for less!

Below: BEFORE changing the centre gemstone

Ruby Cabochon Gents Ring

Below: The “After” shot. 

The basic design of the ring had not changed. Our craftsmen did have to subtly amend the ring slightly to suit the new Cabochon. But what a world of difference it makes to the entire ring when the feature gemstone is a clear, beautiful piece as seen below.

Yes, the owner decided to ditch his Ruby Cabochon for a stunning Garnet Cab.

An incredibly eye-clean Garnet Cabochon makes this piece an instant eye-opener! Garnets make for great jewellery as they rank high on the MOHs scale of hardness. They are generally durable and garnets come in a variety of colours! With colour ranging from purple, red to bright fiery orange and intense green, what’s not to love about the garnet?

Gorgeous Tanzanite Engagement Ring

Tanzanite is known to be a rather soft stone. Tanzanites are also, almost always heated.  Nonetheless, if cared for properly by its owner during storage and wear, it is a remarkably beautiful gemstone that can last for decades. Tanzanites are indeed a rare gemstone as they originate only from one source in Tanzania (hence the name). Below is a gorgeous tanzanite engagement ring with a full suite of halo diamonds, both on top and on the sides of the halo. 

Tanzanites are typically polished and faceted as large gemstones in sizes 5cts and above. Sizes less than 5 cts are not typically seen in jewellery stores. Hence, it is actually rare to find this piece as seen below, not exceeding 2cts and in a round shape. A premium is usually priced in for all gemstones (regardless coloured gemstone or diamond) that come in round shape as this shape incurs the highest carat weight loss.

Featured below is a very romantic-styled engagement ring with a gorgeous Tanzanite as its centrepiece.

Tanzanites typically displays a good range of lilac, violets and blue all within the same stone. In a more ‘technical’ term, it is a trichroic gemstone, meaning Tanzanites typically exhibit 3 layers of colour. There are very few gemstones known to Mankind that are trichroic.

And what’s more brilliant about this piece is that this design can be worn with a plain wedding band in a seamless effect! No awkward gap between your engagement ring and your wedding band!

If you don’t fancy a plain wedding band, style your engagement ring with a channel-set diamond wedding band, with our seamless effect. Either way, it will be a super gorgeous wedding stack.

Propose with 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.

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.

Unheat Royal Blue Sapphire Snowflake Design

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.

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.

unheated customised Sapphire earrings

An exceptional pair of earrings, for a discerning client. Unheated customised Sapphire earrings – bespoke jewellery at its finest quality.

2 pairs of matching unheated sapphire earrings is very rare. All 4 pieces totalling near 16cts.

Deep royal inky blue sapphires topped with ice-blue sapphires make for an elegant statement pair of earrings. All we can say is that the owner of this pair of earrings is one very lucky lady.

Sourcing for 2 pairs of unheated Sapphires is no easy feat and does require abit of time and luck. Loupe clean and matched pieces in size and colour are so rare. 

Set in a design that is classy and elegant, never goes out of style and simply spells luxury. Customised jewellery allows the owner to commemorate special occasions with something unique to themselves. It brings meaning to customise your own piece, rather than buying a piece off the shelf or ready-made. Because even the finest detail can be tailored to one’s preference. For instance, this client wanted the top pieces to be in a much lighter shade of blue than the bottom row. Thereby creating a nice contrast of colours. This is possible with customised jewellery. 

Handcrafted in Singapore by our master craftsmen, with precision detailing on wearability, functionality and comfort, there is no denying that this pair of earrings is to be looked after, for her next generation.

Pink Bridal Jewellery

Pink Tourmalines make for great jewellery. Ranking 7-7.5 on the MOHs hardness scale, tourmalines can be set into rings, earrings, pendants and even bracelets.

Let us not get confused with the MOHs hardness scale. For example, diamonds that rank a sturdy “10” on the hardness scale, does not mean that the diamond is invincible. It merely means that it is scratch-proof. Diamonds are however, not chip-proof or break-proof. The MOHs hardness scale merely shows the ability of a certain material/mineral to scratch another softer material/mineral. This means that if one were to bring a hammer down on a diamond or say knock a diamond on a fairly hard material or at a sharp angle (perhaps a metal/stainless steel joining commonly found around the house), that diamond can be chipped or crack lines can occur.

Below is a pair of oval shaped Pink Tourmalines set into a modern, yet stunning piece of art great for regular wear. And no, we do not require a halo of diamonds surrounding the centre gem for every piece of jewellery we create.

With Princess cut diamonds totalling close to 1 ct in total weight, this pair of earrings is also created as part of bridal jewellery set. No, your bridal jewellery does not necessarily have to be white nor colourless! Add that pop of colour to your white gown and definitely stand our from the crowd, in a unique yet beautiful way.

Red Gemstones – not Rubies

A special pair of pyrope-almandine garnet ear drops. Set in 18K white gold with a nice mix of pear shapes, marquise and round diamonds, we create a very pretty pair of earrings in a romantic style.

This pair of earrings was created as a part of a bride’s wedding fine jewellery set, to be worn with the bridal gown. Set in a design that is special enough to be worn with her bridal gown on the actual day, yet not overly complicated that it cannot be worn more frequently thereafter, brainstorming such a design requires the art of intricate balance.

If you like a red gemstone, no need to yearn for a ruby (heat or unheat). The price of a unheated ruby is out-of-reach for most. So, will one settle for a heated ruby? Why would you? The price of a heated ruby is still far more pricey than most or all other types of red gemstones which are unheat, untreated and 100% natural. So why pay the high price for a gemstone that is heated, ruby or otherwise?

Below is a list of red gemstones that are usually available as an unheated, untreated and 100% natural gemstone:

  • Red Garnet
  • Rhodolite Garnets (exist often in shades of purple or magenta, similar to the colour of wine, but they do come in red hues as well)
  • Red Beryl
  • Red Spinel

The Romantic Unheated Blue Sapphire Ring

No one said that diamonds were a necessity in creating your perfect engagement ring. And that was the wish of this client, who wanted a simple, romantic design which they could call their own.

The devil is in the construction and detailing of this ring. Unlike the typical construction of a ring that uses at least 2 or more separate pieces/parts of gold to create, this ring design uses only 1 long strip of intertwining gold. This symbolises the love between 2 people; and for each other. There is no breakage nor joining of gold in the construction of this ring design. It is a simple, organic and very clean look for this unheated sapphire ring. After all, the intensity of this royal blue sapphire speaks for itself.
