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!

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?

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.

Pink Proposal Ring

A proposal ring does not have to be blue.

Pastel pinks make for pretty and romantic engagement rings. Seen here is a round, unheat pastel pink sapphire, flanked by 4 pieces round diamonds set in a wave design with a heart-shape detailing on the cross-section. In 18K white gold.

Petite and dainty yet fuss-free, this design is evergreen which allows most of the attention to be focussed on the unheat pink sapphire.
