What You Need To Know About Diamond Color Tints

A diamond can have a several color tints, such as yellow, brown, green or grey. 

Brown, green or grey color tinted diamonds should be avoided because the diamond will look darker for their color grade. These color tints may not be reflected on the GIA certificate due to its hue.


An industry term for this is BGM (Brown, Greenish, Milky) diamonds. Always ensure that your diamond has ''No BGM''.




In the diamonds that we used in this video, they are G Color. All 3 piles of diamonds are G Colors, but in different color hues.

For all of our diamonds, we always ensure that there are no brown, green or grey tints. In addition, we do not accept diamonds with milkiness. Diamonds with these characteristics will not be reflected on the GIA/AGS certificate and are priced lower for these negative effects. Visually inspect your diamond for this or check with your jeweller.

A Customized Solitaire Diamond Ring with Wings


The sky's the limit for our ring customization services. All of our ring customization services comes with complimentary 3D renders where we'll create a realistic 3D image of your ring design, based on your diamond and finger proportions. This will give you a realistic view of your ring design in various angles.

We were approached by a client to customise a solitaire wing designed ring for his partner. He selected a Super Ideal Cut diamond, which is known for its outstanding fire and brilliance (as you can see in the video below). The wings was done in rose gold, while we left the band in white gold to highlight that features of the design and to bring out the intricate feather details of the ring.

In our first 3D render, we created a draft below to get a rough idea of the overall look and feel of the ring. We made the feathers overlaying each other, with the outline of the wings following the contour of the band.



After some brainstorming and a few tweaks, we ended up with the finalized design below!
To make the wings more realistic, we modelled it to look as it is flapping upwards towards the sky. The feathers and wings was made longer to highlight the detailing of each feather, giving the whole ring a realistic appearance.



Have a look at the video below and see how the finshed ring turned out!

A Customised Proposal Ring with Pave Side Diamonds


There are many ways to customise your ring to have it more meaningful and symbolic to you and your partner. Edward approached me back in early 2016 to help him cutomise his perfect proposal ring. He chose a Super Ideal Cut diamond, which known for its amazing light performance aka bling. After all, who wouldn't want a super sparkly diamond? :)

He put alot of effort and thought in his ring design, and shared with us on the small little details and hidden messages he wanted to incorporate into his ring. On the side profile view, a carefully designed "R" is done to represent a boy and a girl, holding hands and kissing. This was meant to be an abstract design to symbolize this, while keeping the elegantly designed. 



After some discussion and several tweaks, we came up with his 3D render to give a preview of his ring! Using the diamond he selected, we laser scanned it into our program, which allowed us to use the same dimensions of his diamond into the 3D render. This gives us a realistic view of his ring's overall proportions. This is very useful for those who have a tough time visualising their ring.
Notice the heart shape tip prongs?


Using the 3D render, we proceeded to handcraft his ring. 
Below is the finished product!




Here's a close up video  :)



 "The actual proposal was actually done at the peak of Rainbow Mountain in Cusco, Peru :) It was 5000 ft above sea level. I showed her a self-made video when we reached the peak, and placed the RnR ring in a custom made book ring box just like the same as in "Up" cartoon movie. After she finished watching the video with the theme : "Our Adventure Book", i kneel down and propose to her. Here are some great photos of the actual proposal 😊 Thanks for sharing the photo of the ring with rainbow backdrop at the Iguazu Fall. We saw the clear rainbow, and it reminded us of the beautiful 121017 moments at the Rainbow Mountain 😊"- Edward Ding

Congratulations to Edward & Hong Rui!!

A Classic Solitaire Diamond Ring

Classic solitaire ring designs are always one of the most popular ring design as they are timeless and easy to match with wedding bands. If you're wondering if you should go for 4 or 6 prongs ring designs, you can check out here.

For now, we'll be showcasing a classic solitaire 4 prongs proposal ring. We added a special touch to this by creating a cathedral setting (the 2 triangle holes on the side). This gives the appearance that the main diamond is elevated, where you want the main focus to be! Also, we kept the side profile view of the prong head clean, where you're able to see the complete side view of the main diamond.

Here's a video of it! The main diamond is a Super Ideal Cut 0.71 G VS2. Enjoy!

A Customised Solitaire Proposal Ring for Aivin

Aivin approached us to customise his proposal ring, with the inspiration of creating his very own engagement ring design. Although he didn't manage to visit our jewelry store in Singapore as he was located in Malaysia, all communications was done over email. This was a smooth and easy process where we managed to shortlist a diamond in his specifications and provide its scope images online.


Aivin created his own unique design from sketches, and forwarded them to us. This was a straight forward approach, where we simply followed his drawings and created a 3D render. From the side view, the prong head has a heart shape filigree. From his original design, we further customized additional filigrees in the cathedral gaps of the band. Overall, it gave the ring an intricate and whimsical look. From the top view, its shows a simple classic 6 prongs solitaire proposal ring, while on the sides, it reveals an intricate story.


Once the 3D render was approved, we proceeded to handcraft his ring with end product below. Each of our rings are individually handcrafted by our Mastercrafter. The beauty to this is that it gives the ring an organic look where the diamond and ring design complements each other.




We expedited his ring be be handcrafted before his proposal trip at Mount Fuji. Aivin shared with us some of his proposal and engagement ring photos below.

and some amazing diamond ring handshots.


Aivin's advice for the lads would be: "The satisfactions of designing your own ring is exquisite, you will notice small details  about your partner and what suits her most, and knowing she deserve the one and only design in this world because she is the special one. So, Just Do It! "
