Transform your jewellery: Ruby to Garnet Ring

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?

Gorgeous Tanzanite Engagement Ring

Tanzanite is known to be a rather soft stone. Tanzanites are also, almost always heated.  Nonetheless, if cared for properly by its owner during storage and wear, it is a remarkably beautiful gemstone that can last for decades. Tanzanites are indeed a rare gemstone as they originate only from one source in Tanzania (hence the name). Below is a gorgeous tanzanite engagement ring with a full suite of halo diamonds, both on top and on the sides of the halo. 

Tanzanites are typically polished and faceted as large gemstones in sizes 5cts and above. Sizes less than 5 cts are not typically seen in jewellery stores. Hence, it is actually rare to find this piece as seen below, not exceeding 2cts and in a round shape. A premium is usually priced in for all gemstones (regardless coloured gemstone or diamond) that come in round shape as this shape incurs the highest carat weight loss.

Featured below is a very romantic-styled engagement ring with a gorgeous Tanzanite as its centrepiece.

Tanzanites typically displays a good range of lilac, violets and blue all within the same stone. In a more ‘technical’ term, it is a trichroic gemstone, meaning Tanzanites typically exhibit 3 layers of colour. There are very few gemstones known to Mankind that are trichroic.

And what’s more brilliant about this piece is that this design can be worn with a plain wedding band in a seamless effect! No awkward gap between your engagement ring and your wedding band!

If you don’t fancy a plain wedding band, style your engagement ring with a channel-set diamond wedding band, with our seamless effect. Either way, it will be a super gorgeous wedding stack.

Propose with our Signature Snowflake design

In their mission in find a special engagement ring that will commemorate their time spent in Singapore, this lovely couple chanced upon our bespoke custom service of handcrafting fine quality jewellery.

Their request was to find a beautiful unheated, untreated sapphire that would catch the eye of this very lucky lady. As her now-fiancee had put it, they were looking for a sapphire that would match the color of her eyes. Alternatively, they were hoping to find a shade of blue that reminds them of the ocean.

Unheated Sapphire, set in our Signature Snowflake design, with marquise and round diamonds, there is no better way to capture this Christmas proposal and wedding.

Unheat Royal Blue Sapphire Snowflake Design

Their next request was to have their wedding bands handcrafted by our master craftsmen. They were quite specific in having this memorable keepsake entirely handmade. In a hammer-effect, unlike most hammered-style bands found in retail stores.

At the year end of 2016, this lovely couple brought their wedding jewellery set back to San Francisco where they tied the knot in the San Francisco City Hall.

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.

Colour-change Sapphire 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.

Colour Change Sapphire Ring Snowflake Design

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.

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.
