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.
A Blue Spinel engagement is on trend and here to stay.
What is not to love about the Blue Spinel? It is a hardy piece of rock, and comes in beautiful shades of light blue, blue-grey, steel blue, midnight blue. Blue spinels come in shades of blue typically soothing to the eye. No, it is not that excessive pop of colour one typically sees in a tanzanite or a heated sapphire. Instead, it is a gentle, calming blue that brings joy to the eyes and if it’s by Heritage Gems, it would be a colour one would enjoy even 30 years later.
The lustre, fire and brilliance of the spinel is not inferior to the sapphire. In fact, spinels have often been mistaken for fine quality sapphires. Eye-clean, good lustre, top quality spinels are less common.
Below is stone that is not as oval as the client would have preferred. Hence, after our design discussion, we crafted a beautiful piece for the lady, who preferred a more elongated oval shape for the overall look of the ring. Notice that this is not a simple halo we have designed. The diamonds on the halo are of graduating sizes.
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.
