This beautiful, customised wedding band set gives new meaning to the term: Trilogy Wedding Band Set.
Our client who had first customised her unheated sapphire engagement ring with us had subsequently requested a 2-piece stackable diamond wedding band in 18K Rose Gold. This stack allows the bride to wear them singly or together on one 1 finger or one band on each finger.
The groom-to-be had requested for a truly unique wedding band. Looking for a design that reminds him of a river stream and more importantly, preferring a raw, organic look.
Set in a industrial, raw, and unpolished natural gold finish; this wedding band is truly a one-of-a-kind design. As the groom says “no matter which direction I turn my ring, no two facets are the same. So everyday, I see something new. It is truly a unique piece.”
Every element of this entire engagement-cum-wedding band set is 100% natural and borne out of Mother Nature. From the alloy used to create the natural gold band, to the diamonds and finally, the unheated, untreated sapphire.
Truly a romantic and beautiful trilogy wedding band set.

Every once in a while, there is the possibility to create something magical. A pair of unheated blue sapphire ear studs.
For ladies who love adorning their ears with that extra bling, will know the difficulty in sourcing for a matching pair of coloured gemstones. Yet indeed, we were able to match a pair of unheated blue sapphires!
Almost royal blue in colour, an unheated pair of blue sapphires is very rare. Mother Nature was definitely being very kind as unheated blue sapphires, as a singular piece, is already difficult to source. What more a pair?
Our client was after a simple pair of blue sapphire ear studs that she could wear a little more often. Something simple, elegant, yet fine quality. Notice the fine milgrain on the edges of the gold work? – this lends an air of vintage appeal to the ear studs. Very pretty indeed.
No, we cannot get enough of this medium electric blue seen in this unheated blue sapphire. This shade of blue for unheated sapphires is becoming extremely difficult to source – regardless of size.
If you chance upon this, grab it while you still can. It won’t be long before availability becomes an issue, even if money is not!
Styled in ever classic diamond halo design because the blue already stands out so well on its own – what more could a lady ask for?
For blue sapphire purists, below is a ring that should catch your eye. **Pls note that unheated blue sapphires of this colour quality is very difficult to come by.
While our client was not quite sure what to expect prior to meeting us, she knew she was looking for an unheat sapphire of exceptional colour. Apart from this, she also had other requirements for the design of her ring. She did not want any diamonds, “just the blue sapphire” she said. During out meeting, she pre-empted us that she had specific design requirements that other jewellers either could not or did not want to assist with. Either way, they were not able to provide her what she was looking for.
Below is her blue sapphire ring. Unheated, vivid blue, 2.34ct ceylon sapphire ring. Most brilliant colour. & definitely very difficult to chance upon this colour.

Our client had informed us he was looking for a unheated sapphire ring to match his wife’s existing earrings. Colour matching in 100% natural unheated gemstones is extremely difficult, especially when sourced at different times. Simply because no two natural colours are the same. Similarly, no twins are exactly the same, – there’s always a slight difference.
This ring is special in its colour. 100% eye-clean, this 2.12ct sapphire is almost electric blue under natural gentle morning sun. One of our most remarkable pieces by far. Unheated, of course.
Our client has a keen eye for fine quality gems. His “budget” allowed for even dark, royal blue sapphires. However, he simply insisted on a medium, almost electric-blue sapphire ring for his wife, to match her existing earrings. We needed some time.
After much sourcing and hunting, we found this that thankfully met his requirements.
Blue Sapphire Engagement Rings are fast gaining popularity, especially since Kate Middleton was proposed to with one.
Requesting for a blue sapphire sounds relatively simple enough. And how hard can it be to customise that special, ideal engagement ring? But there are actually several considerations to be thought through before settling on that ideal piece.
- Shade of blue: Light blue? Medium Blue? Deep? Inky Blue? Royal Blue?
- Fine quality should be evenly-toned and well-saturated colour.
- When viewing the loose gem, pay attention that as the gem is tilted/rocked from side-to-side, that there is colour throughout the entire gem. Commercial quality sapphires tend to have colour-banding/colour-zones whereby certain parts of the gem are colourless.
- Why are sapphires with colour-bands/colour-zones considered commercial quality? It is common for sapphires to exhibit these streaks of blue, due to the way the rock is formed. While this does not affect the integrity of the gem, it certainly does not enhance the aesthetic beauty of the gem. Hence, a market premium is paid for well-saturated and evenly coloured gems.
- Unheat or Heat?: Again, this is entirely a matter of personal preference. However, heated sapphires are easily found and beautiful heated sapphires are plenty abound. So, if one is able to chance upon a aesthetically beautiful gem that is 100% untreated and unheated, it would add to the value of the gem.
- What is your choice of metal?
- What style of ring? What sort of design? This will affect budget too.
Featured below is a custom-made, eye-catching medium-blue unheated sapphire ring set in 950 pure platinum, with E-F diamonds. Notice how the sapphire seems to glow from within! Very good lustre and brilliancy, evenly-toned with a strong medium blue hue. This eye-catching piece is a stunner even without the aid of direct light source.

A simply mesmerising engagement ring. An unheated Sri Lankan Blue Sapphire, 3.52cts in the ideal shade of blue – not too dark and not too light, with excellent lustre and clarity. An eternally classic setting in 950 platinum.
Our client had his eyes set on one of our dazzling blue sapphires. He wanted only the best – unheated blue sapphire, no less. As an engagement ring, he was after a simple, classy yet unusually beautiful setting. After a few rounds of discussions, we found the sweet spot with half-moon side diamonds to accentuate this blue beauty.
**Fancy-cut setting-size diamonds are considerably more pricey than regular round setting-size diamonds.
