Pink Proposal Ring

Unheat Pink Sapphire Ring with Heart Detailing

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 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.        …

The Romantic Unheated Blue Sapphire Ring

Custom Order Sapphire Engagement Ring

No one said that diamonds were a necessity in creating your perfect engagement ring. And that was the wish of this client, who wanted a simple, romantic design which they could call their own. The devil is in the construction and detailing of this ring. Unlike the typical construction of a ring that uses at least 2 or more separate pieces/parts of gold to create, this ring design uses only 2 long strips of intertwining gold. This symbolises the love between 2 people; and for each other. There is no breakage nor joining of gold in the construction of this ring design. It is a simple, organic and very clean look for…

Custom-designed in 18K white gold, to be worn as a lapel pin on a gent’s coat or jacket, it is beautifully designed as a push-stud concept making it practical and safe for its owner to wear. For the refined gent who likes getting suited up with a touch of class. Understated finesse is the key word our client was going for in the commissioning of this lapel pin.

All things green

Green never fails to exude an air of mystery – and like all coloured gemstones, no 2 shades of coloured gemstones are exactly the same. Herein lies the beauty of coloured gemstones. Here, we have paired a green tourmaline with green tsavorites for our client. The green tourmaline displays a beautiful moss-green, which nicely balances the apple-green of the tsavorites. When pairing more than one colour or hue on the same piece of jewellery, if not done properly, could appear gaudy. Hence, when trying to create fine jewellery involving multiple shades of colours, it is best done under the discussion and consultation of a jewellery professional.
