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.

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

With the use of fancy shape diamonds, one is assured that it is an entirely customised piece of art. Hardly seen in your typical off-the-shelf fine jewellery, fancy shape diamonds help to create a piece of wearable art that is uniquely yours.

 

Vintage style sapphire ring

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 the foot as we might, very soon, get a a barrage of enquiries about whether we can source a similar blue sapphire with hint of sea-green. And in response to this, the answer is: this color is unique, rare and not commonly seen.

Our client was quite specific in his design requirements. He had wanted to create a ring that had a slight vintage appeal, somewhat reminiscent of something from the victorian era, yet nothing too complicated nor dated. After some rounds of design tweaking, he was happy with the look and feel of the proposed design.

Some views of the work-in-progress photos below. Clearly before fine jewellery becomes sparkly as most people would recognise it as, the initial stages are very raw and organic. Which is not surprising really, as every material and component is God’s gift and the miracle of Mother Nature. Gemstones, gold and diamonds are all mined from rocks, earth and mineral components.

Bestowing a gift of handcrafted fine jewellery to your beloved is truly precious because  every component is 100% natural, earth-mined and organic. Every piece of fine jewellery has its own story. And every component; from the precious stone, to the diamond and the gold, has journeyed a long way from its origin – deep within the depths of earth, to find its way onto your person. A priceless treasure, a true keeper.

You simply cannot say no to this

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?
