Redesign and re-set your old jewellery with us in Singapore

Ever had a bunch of old jewellery items that need refreshing, but you’re not quite sure what to do with them?

Below is an example of an old diamond ring and diamond ear studs that have been well-worn over the years and the owner wanted to have it re-designed into something else.

Is it not beautiful after being re-designed and re-set into a diamond cross pendant? Re-design into a piece that can be worn daily without being overly ostentatious.

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

 

Red Garnet Bridal Dangling Earrings

Red Garnet and Fancy Diamond Bridal Ear Drops

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.

 

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.

Engagement Jewellery

A recently completed set of jewellery for an esteemed client who was looking for a complete set of jewellery for her engagement. Our client does not reside in Singapore.

She was intrigued by pink colour gemstones but was not sure of which gemstones were a good colour with nice lustre and brilliancy for her specific budget. After much detailed discussions and understanding her requirements, we finally decided on sourcing Pink Tourmalines to make a pair of earrings and a ring.

We managed to source an almost identical pair of Pink Tourmalines. However, due to our strict in-house Quality Control and exacting standards, we were unable to set this into a pair of earrings for our client since the original size of the gemstones were not an exact matching pair in terms of size. At Heritage Gems, re-cutting gemstones is not an issue. Photo above was before re-cut.

While the gemstones were being sent to the re-cutting process, we proceeded on design & sketches for the complete set of jewellery.

The final set below, completed. Sweet, beautiful and simple. Pair of drop earrings and ring set in 18K white gold with Brilliant Pink Tourmalines.

A fully customised beautiful pair of yellow sapphire earrings

We had a client come to us late last year, with a specific request for a pair of yellow sapphires to be made into earrings. She was after pear-shaped sapphires, in a nice bright yellow hue that would complement her nice tan, in an ideal size that would complement her frame and build. The key factors in looking for matching pair of gemstones to be set into earrings are:

1. identical shape & size
2. both gemstones should ideally be of matching hue and saturation (for certain types of gemtones, this criteria borders on near-impossible. Eg: Emeralds. This criteria is even more difficult to fulfill if the client would like for the gems to be unheated/non-treated). Reason: 100% natural gemstones may not be exactly identical in hue and saturation due to the fact that these gems are obtained from different locations within the same mine. Being 100% natural, no two gemstones will be exactly alike – Similarly, no two fingerprints will be exactly identical.
3.  almost similar levels of clarity

So, our client’s request certainly was difficult, but for Heritage Gems – it was not impossible. In the early weeks, we chanced upon this pair of oval-shaped yellow sapphires, that were not in the shape as per client’s request.

However, this was not a problem for us as we have the facilities to re-cut, re-facet and re-polish the gems to her requirement. So our design discussions with our client began. She wanted the yellow sapphires to be the feature colour of her earrings. Preferring that pave diamonds (if any) would not distract the attention away from the beautiful colour of her sapphires. She’d envisioned the finished look to be simple, classy, yet stunning. Final look of the earrings are below.

Timeline for customised fine jewellery, depending on client’s requirements and level of complexity can range anywhere from 3 months – 9 months.
