Hey hey everyone!
I hope you are doing well and enjoying the summer sunny weather! I love the hot weather, although some days have been a little too hot for my liking, but alhamdulillah, no complains!
Recently I had a wonderful opportunity to model a beautiful custom ruby ring by AlJoher Gems and let’s just say, I didn’t want to give it back! It was quite honestly one of the prettiest rings I’ve ever seen with intricate details and it sparkled all around. It was cutting-edge, quite literally 😉
A little bit about AlJoher Gems. They are a Toronto-based jewelry company that specializes in custom pieces made with precious gems such as sapphire, ruby, and emerald. And of course, diamonds 💎
The co-founder is actually a Gemologist and he is quite knowledgeable about various stones and gems. They source their gems and provide a certificate of authenticity for your chosen stone, so you are assured to get a high-quality piece. It was really fun to sit down with Charmeen from AlJoher Gems and walk through the process of creating a custom item. I was so intrigued and quite excited actually, so hint-hint Mom and Dad 😉
You first get to see some of their loose gems, which is really unique, because you can truly see how that gem will look like on your finger as a ring or on your hand as a bracelet. Then you get to design your piece with their team, and it is made in Toronto, which honestly is my favourite part about them! For a ring, the whole process is between 2-5 weeks, which is much quicker than I initially had thought.
The ring I modeled was a ruby engagement ring set in an 18K white gold halo with 0.32 carat diamonds. The ruby itself is 1.2 carat and it’s from Mozambique. It was a delicate oval shape which was absolutely stunning in a pigeon blood colour. I don’t think this description really does this ring justice, you really just have to see it for yourself!
As you can see, this piece is undoubtedly remarkable and it’s no mystery why I wanted it to be mine! I genuinely think this ring is extraordinary and you know no one else will have the same jewelry as you. I love the halo setting and the full diamond band. These features add an extra bit of elegance yet grace to the ring.
Let me know what you think of this piece, although I have a strong feeling you’ll echo everything I’ve already said!
Talk to you soon,
