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!
Below: BEFORE changing the centre gemstone
Below: The “After” shot.
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?
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.
