Top 5 Styles of Hand-Made Rings

On the hunt for unique diamond rings jewellery in Singapore? These hand-made rings by local artisans are nothing like the mass market brands or over-priced pieces found in shopping malls. Ranging from a scintillating halo to an attention-grabbing precious stone that makes a statement, here are some of our favourites from ValueMax.

1) The Timeless Allure of Geometric Design

To give a futuristic look, some artisan rings are carved into geometric shapes like squares, rectangles and circles. This creates complex pieces that reflect both the modern and streamlined spirit. The geometrical design distinguishes them from the fluid lines and natural themes of traditional vintage and Peranakan pieces.

Simple and beautifully carved to perfection, this ring features a circular cabochon cat’s eye in a geometric cushion halo mounted on 18k white gold setting:

Featured in this diamond ring are the manifested ideals in the use of pavé diamonds and sleek geometric angles. The diamond cluster adds scintillating elegance to your style.

2) Bold and contrasting colours

Vibrant-coloured gemstones are prominently featured in ValueMax’s collection of artisan rings. The colours of the stones are striking and bold, paired or punctuated with a high-shine platinum or white gold setting. The artisans created eye-catching combinations of diamonds with rubies, sapphires, and emeralds. Complemented by a selection of smaller gemstones, the centre piece sometimes used cabochon cut semi precious stones such as pearl, jade, chrysoberyl, and turquoise make the colour contrast.

Going with the big and bold theme, this ring contrasts a blue sapphire to white accent diamonds for a stunning colour combination:

– Emerald Cut

An emerald cut is a type of step cut where the facets are parallel to one another and look like a hall of mirrors. The enchantment of vintage glitz is brought out in the emerald cut centre piece of a ring.

– Calibré cut stones and pavé diamond shoulders

Advances in stone cutting allowed jewelers to make complex pieces such as calibre cut stones and pavé diamond shoulders. The designs are tightly packed with gemstones cut to fit together perfectly, with little or no metal showing. Calibré cut stones are invisibly set gemstones which are cut to precision for a specific fit. The shoulder, often lined with pavé diamonds, marks the point between the setting and band of the ring.

5) Vintage Inspired Filigree Work

Filigree is one of the traditional jewellery-making techniques still in use by artisans today. This delicate, refined craft involves twisting thin metal threads into intricate lace-like patterns. The designs were desirable during the elegance of the Edwardian period and reached the peak of popularity during the era of Art Deco in the 1920’s and 1930’s. The geometric designs of filigree mirrored the abstract geometry of Art Deco design.
