How To Select The Perfect Stone

For A Proposal Ring?

Unique Wedding Bands are created based on the couple's personal love stories.  As each couple is unique, so is your Unique Wedding Band.  Our Master Artisan, Wendy Lor, masterfully captures the very essence of your unique love story, sealing your deep affection for each other.  It is sui generis and timeless. It is you and your partner, personified.

Besides creating unique wedding bands, we love creating unique proposal rings too.  The way we create it is very much like the unique wedding band except that we get to know only the guys' side of the story.  Ever wondered if you can put a poem in your ring or even an image that is very significant to you both?  Or perhaps you want just a simple band with a special message inside or maybe outside, crafted tastefully?  All these and more is possible.

Diamonds

It is very common to expect a solitaire diamond ring for a proposal ring thanks to the sustained marketing efforts of the diamond industry.  It is one of our favourite gemstone to work with too.  But did you know that the concept of using diamonds on proposal and wedding rings is less than 100 years old.

Scott Cunningham in his book Cunningham's Encyclopaedia of Crystal, Gem, and Metal Magic said, “Though the diamond is not a stone of love, it is worn to ensure fidelity and to reconcile quarrelling lovers. Today it is, of course, the most popular wedding stone, due in part to aggressive advertising, but other stones are perhaps more appropriate. This usage has no ancient history.”

Besides diamonds, we have worked with many other breath-taking precious and semi-precious gemstones.  And it has been amazingly well accepted.  Simply because of the reason behind the ring, including the design, the chosen gemstone and the message it carries.

Sapphire

Sapphire for instance, has been a traditional favorite among brides through the centuries, and not just because of its lovely blue hue. It is worn on rings to symbolize commitment, fidelity and romantic love.

One of our favorite proposal ring piece is set with a 1.5 carat Natural Baby Blue Sapphire and diamonds.  A stunning piece not only for its' authenticity but also for the meaning it carries with it, a message of love from husband to wife.  We apologize for not showing pictures of the real pieces as all of them are truly unique and as a respect for the couple's privacy.   

Ruby

Ruby is a red colored transparent gem from the mineral Corundum. Interestingly, ruby and sapphire are different colored types of this very same mineral. Rubies have been historically renowned as the gem of kings and queens.

Emerald

Emeralds on the other hand are believed to have healing powers in the days long gone. These days however, this beautiful green precious stone is prized for its color and rarity.

Jade

Jade is said to symbolize love and eternity, and therefore a good choice for couples seeking to imbue their wedding rings with added meaning.

Choose to express your individuality and seek a greater departure from what is considered popular, semi-precious stones make exciting and unique choices. Amethyst, citrine, chalcedony, tourmaline, aquamarine, turquoise and kunzite are just some of semi-precious stones that come to mind.
