Our feature this month focuses on setting and design. Our client is truly someone special who chose to be unique and dared to be different. By proposing with a tension set engagement ring! Not only was the setting and design unique, the shape of the gem itself was special.
Below is a trillion shape Rhodolite Garnet tension set with 2 large side diamonds in 18K white gold. Rhodolite garnets typically exhibit a slight tinge of purple/violet. This particular rhodolite has no purple/violet, instead is a beautiful deep red colour. The 2 sides of gold work on either ends of the rhodolite seems to magically hold and suspend the garnet mid-air.
For someone looking for a contemporary, minimalist and unique setting, this engagement ring ticks all the checkboxes.
There is romantic appeal in such a deep mysterious shade of ocean blue sapphire. And surprisingly, this sapphire ring is not unheated. Yes, Heritage Gems does have access to heated sapphires as well.
Though heated, this particular shade of blue is not what one would typically see at a highstreet/mainstream jeweller. It is unique deep mysterious blue. Our client said “I feel calm when I see this colour”.
Heated blue sapphires normally offered at your mainstream jeweller are usually an intense, almost bright blue shade. Some would describe these shades as somewhat artificial looking.
Again, one of the main reasons why we do what we do. We are passionate about colours. Coloured sparklers are intimately fascinating. As an engagement ring, the lady of the hour decided she wanted a simple and evergreen style that could last her for years to come and a style she could wear for even the most simple of occasions.
