A recently commissioned gorgeous blue spinel engagement ring from a client based in Ireland. The couple had travelled to Asia and gotten in touch about commissioning a special piece to commemorate their engagement.
Simple in style, yet so unique in colour (both the gem in its own right and also the 18K Rose Gold design work). Handcrafted right here in our workshop in our Singapore, a style that looks beguilingly simple, yet requires experienced craftsmanship and skill to craft.

To complete the piece, we top it off with a most unique, fine quality Blue Spinel. In round brilliant cut, loupe-clean, with a fine quality lustre that make this piece shine bright like a diamond.
Have you ever walked into a gemstone or jewellery store and asked to see a Spinel? Chances are the store assistant will likely say they are either out of stock or do not have any at the moment. Or they might pull out from their drawer, some Spinels possibly in an assortment of colours. You will look and analyse the pieces before your eyes. It is likely you will be greeted with Spinels that look somewhat sleepy, a little dull in appearance or not quite sparkly as what you had originally expected.
Commercial quality blue spinels are fairly easily found in a high-street jewellery shop. However, stunning blue spinels that are well-cut and sparkle like diamonds like this gorgeous blue spinel engagement ring are in fact quite rare.
It is easy to notice that gorgeous blue spinels have a unique quality in that they appear to take on slightly different hues under different lighting conditions. For this fine quality Spinel, it appears slightly violet in natural daylight. Yet has a grey undertone that becomes a little more obvious on an overcast day.
We hope you are inspired by the colours, quality of gemstone and design you see in this post.

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!

Unique blue Spinels engagement rings are never short of stunning.
In our custom-blended 18K Natural Gold, notice that this shade of gold is unlike traditional 18K yellow gold seen typically in Asia. Paired with this shade of blue-violet spinel, this custom-blend of natural gold works well for this blue-violet spinel. Under different light sources, blue spinels sometimes display various shades of grey and violet. This unique colour shift is peculiar to the blue spinel.
This is one such piece – although the camera did not capture the grey in this spinel at all.
Blue Spinel engagement rings are not only refine and tasteful, but spinels are also a treasured gemstone that rank 8 on MOH’s hardness scale. This makes it durable for wear.
What is beautiful about the Spinel is that it is usually and often an unheated, untreated gemstone. It is naturally brilliant and fairly eye clean.
With embedded side diamonds, this style is one that is both elegant and functional that will stand the test of time. Propose with a unique blue spinel engagement rings and she won’t be able to say no. 🙂

The Spinel has been the rage the past 2016 for significant occasions and commemorative jewellery purposes, and especially for engagement and proposal rings. And why not?
Spinels come in a range of stunning and beautiful colours. From black, colourless, pink, pink orange, bright pink, lilac, purple, violet, blue, blue-green, teal, blue-grey. That sounds like just about every imaginable colour under the sun! Well, that is definitely more colours than a rainbow!
Below, we feature a very beautiful, unique, yet entirely wearable Blue-Grey Spinel Ring, handcrafted with the finest workmanship. Guess what, it does not have any diamonds! But still sparkles like any respected sparkler should.
When you customise your piece with Heritage Gems, each and every piece is handcrafted with love and care.
Each winding of the wire around the ring is hand-wound with exact care and calculation to achieve symmetry that appeals to the human eye. Handcrafted to exact measurements. This ring is also set in 18K Natural Gold. Nope, not white gold, not yellow gold, not rose gold. It is Natural Gold.
The couple had requested for special engraving on either sides of the ring. “Love” and “Grace” mark the shanks of the ring.
With so many choices of gemstones out there, why stick to just sapphires for an engagement ring?
Spinels have long been used in fine jewellery. With lustre and brilliance that is comparable and sometimes even rivals that of sapphires, it is not surprising that its popularity has been rising in recent years as people become more aware of this precious gem. Unlike sapphires, spinels are typically unheated as well.
Since ancient times, spinels have long been used on royalty crowns and jewels. And back when technology was not as advanced, people often mistook spinels for corundums (sapphires/rubies) because of its high lustre, being very similar to sapphires.
As far as hardness on the MOH scale, spinels do not fall far behind sapphires, which makes them just as suitable as engagement rings and rings that one would wear on a more regular occasion.
Set in 18K rose gold that beautifully complements the deep red of this spinel, this spinel engagement ring is definitely one of a kind.
