Pink Bridal Jewellery

Pink Tourmaline Princess Cut Diamond Earrings

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…

Red Gemstones – not Rubies

Red Garnet Bridal Dangling Earrings

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…

Colour-change Sapphire Ring

Colour Change Sapphire Proposal Ring

A unique colour-change sapphire. A blue sapphire with hint of sea green in daylight which shifts to purplish red in incandescent light. Though heated, this is definitely a sight to behold. Set in a duo-tone 18K yellow gold and white gold setting,  with diamonds aligned in a lotus-flower setting, this engagement ring is a feminine, remarkable beauty. Below is how the sapphire looks like in incandescent lighting: This is the feedback from our client, who had never actually seen the stone in person during the decision making process. But with the help of a very dedicated fiancé and sister, we were able to create her dream engagement ring.        …

Vintage style sapphire ring

Vintage Style Sapphire Engagement Rings

With fine jewellery, one would expect that it is them who will be in search of that nice piece of rock, or that beautiful gemstone. But when the stars are aligned, without even realising it, the right gemstone will pick you. And this is exactly what happened with this blue sapphire and our client. But this was no ordinary blue sapphire. It was a fine piece of blue sapphire (albeit heated) with a tint of sea green. Unfortunately, this hint of sea green is not picked up very well by the camera nor iPhone. In documenting this hint of sea-green colour in the blue sapphire, we might be shooting ourselves in…

Saturated unheat blue sapphire in 18K Pink Gold

Custom Engagement Ring

A truly unique engagement ring. Medium electric blue unheat sapphire in a 18K pink gold setting. Not very obvious at first glance that it is set in 18K pink gold. However, do a quick flip of the finger, and the subtle hint of pink gold becomes obvious. The devil is in the details. This saturated “electric” blue sapphire has a slightly “creamy” lustre and a colour so intense, it beautifully complements that pinkish hue of the ring setting. Unheat sapphires in this intense blue colour in large sizes (sizes larger than 4 cts) is becoming so increasingly difficult to source. When one chances upon this shade of intense “electric” blue,…

Ice-Blue Unheat Sapphire

An ice-blue frosty unheat blue sapphire engagement ring just in time for a christmas proposal. In the most unusual square-cushion hybrid shape and far from boring, this unheat sapphire ring is as stunning and as it is eye-catching. Notice no area of the sapphire is facet-less. No area of the sapphire is overly dark nor excessively colourless. A well-faceted, fine quality unheat sapphire ring. With a setting that resembles that of a lotus flower, this makes a gorgeous and classy engagement ring.
