Beautiful Unheated blue sapphires are rarer than you think

Colour-matching service is exclusive only for our special VIP clients.

****

Our client had informed us he was looking for a unheated sapphire ring to match his wife’s existing earrings. Colour matching in 100% natural unheated gemstones is extremely difficult, especially when sourced at different times. Simply because no two natural colours are the same. Similarly, no twins are exactly the same, – there’s always a slight difference.

This ring is special in its colour. 100% eye-clean, this 2.12ct sapphire is almost electric blue under natural gentle morning sun. One of our most remarkable pieces by far. Unheated, of course.

Our client has a keen eye for fine quality gems. His “budget” allowed for even dark, royal blue sapphires. However, he simply insisted on a medium, almost electric-blue sapphire ring for his wife, to match her existing earrings. We needed some time.

After much sourcing and hunting, we found this that thankfully met his requirements.

The Vibrant Beauty – Pink Spinel

For the true gemΒ connoisseur, beholding a Spinel brings them many a great delight. For centuries, the Red Spinel has been commonly mistaken by many as the Ruby. Similarly, the Pink Spinel is commonly mistaken for the Pink Sapphire. This is mainly due to its lustre and brilliancy that rivals that of the Rubies and Sapphires.Β True gem-quality Spinels are rare and extremely hard to locate.

Tip of the day: The Spinel has a Refractivity Index that ranks dangerously close to that of Sapphires, resulting in brilliancy that rivals that of the Sapphire.

Several royal artefacts such as the Crown Jewels of IranΒ and the Imperial State Crown of the United KingdomΒ feature Spinels amongst Sapphires and Emeralds.

Below is a newly completed commissioned-work featuring 4.78ct Pink Spinel accented by 1.3cts diamonds in 18K white gold. A timeless piece of jewellery with an understated elegance.

Pure beauty. Unheated, unenhanced, entirely natural blue sapphires.

 

 

 

Blue Zircon. If you love the colour of the ocean, azure blue waters of the Maldivian sea, you will not go wrong with the Blue Zircon. PS: Zircons are gemstones of the earth, not to me mistaken by Cubic Zirconia, which is a synthetic material! Zircons usually rank high on the Refractivity Index, hence the superb lustre and brilliancy.
