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.

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.
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.

An exceptional pair of earrings, for a discerning client. Unheated customised Sapphire earrings – bespoke jewellery at its finest quality.
2 pairs of matching unheated sapphire earrings is very rare. All 4 pieces totalling near 16cts.
Deep royal inky blue sapphires topped with ice-blue sapphires make for an elegant statement pair of earrings. All we can say is that the owner of this pair of earrings is one very lucky lady.
Sourcing for 2 pairs of unheated Sapphires is no easy feat and does require abit of time and luck. Loupe clean and matched pieces in size and colour are so rare.
Set in a design that is classy and elegant, never goes out of style and simply spells luxury. Customised jewellery allows the owner to commemorate special occasions with something unique to themselves. It brings meaning to customise your own piece, rather than buying a piece off the shelf or ready-made. Because even the finest detail can be tailored to one’s preference. For instance, this client wanted the top pieces to be in a much lighter shade of blue than the bottom row. Thereby creating a nice contrast of colours. This is possible with customised jewellery.
Handcrafted in Singapore by our master craftsmen, with precision detailing on wearability, functionality and comfort, there is no denying that this pair of earrings is to be looked after, for her next generation.

Being able to wear one’s engagement ring together with the wedding band seamlessly is a beautiful affair.
We are honoured and had the pleasure of handcrafting this beautiful set of wedding bands and engagement ring for the couple.
Below: Unheated Royal Blue Sapphire and Diamond Ring set in 18K white gold.
This unheat sapphire is almost 3 cts, in a tinge of blue just slightly darker than a medium electric blue. Well-cut and properly faceted means that one is able to see the many facets of the sapphire, even after it has been mounted onto the ring.
Below: When the wedding band is slipped through the finger, it sits seamlessly with the engagement ring, and with no gaps in between both rings. This effect is typically achieved if the request is made with your jeweller right at the onset of customising the engagement ring – that you would wish for your wedding band and engagement ring to sit together seamlessly.
Below: Pair of solid 18K white gold wedding bands with personalised engraving on both wedding bands. While there is no hard and fast rule to the thickness of the wedding bands, here at Heritage Gems, we believe that wedding bands should not be cast too thin. Our wedding bands are crafted in solid gold with good thickness to last you a lifetime.
If you would like to create your seamless engagement-wedding band set, request for this with us at your first appointment so that we can customise both bands to fit each other during the design consultation and discussion stage.
A truly unique engagement ring. Medium electric blue unheat sapphire in a 18K pink gold setting. Not very obvious at first glance that it is set in 18K pink gold. However, do a quick flip of the finger, and the subtle hint of pink gold becomes obvious. The devil is in the details.
This saturated “electric” blue sapphire has a slightly “creamy” lustre and a colour so intense, it beautifully complements that pinkish hue of the ring setting.
Unheat sapphires in this intense blue colour in large sizes (sizes larger than 4 cts) is becoming so increasingly difficult to source. When one chances upon this shade of intense “electric” blue, size and shape as determining criteria start to take a backseat. Quality of a fine gemstone is determined largely by colour, clarity and lustre.

In the truest sense of the word blue, how can one go wrong with such a ring? On the contrary, this is not an engagement ring. Simply, a client who appreciates a pure unheated gem, untainted by man, unrivalled in beauty. Stunning on its own, needing not much more than a simple setting of one halo of diamonds to accentuate this blue beauty.
Crafted in 18K white gold, this is truly a piece to be handed over to the next generation.
