18k Gold & Madagascar Ruby Signet Ring
Ruby 40 for Me
The designer's perspective
Cameleor had the privilege to fulfill this long-awaited dream for a splendid Ruby Signet Ring.
Cedric asked us to design him a gold signet ring set with a generous cushion cut Ruby. We suggested him to choose rather a beautiful spessartite garnet because natural ruby is one of the most expensive gemstones in the world. Natural rubies of good quality and generous size will sell from 900 to more than 3000 € per carat...
But the idea at the heart of this project was the Ruby... and totally reconsidering the proposed budget was not an option.
Keeping his research in mind, we then identified a great quality for price gem vendor which had a splendid "pigeon blood" Madagascar ruby of the right size. It is from that point that the project really started. Once the stone was acquired, Nathalie was able to create for it a relatively sleek signet body to fully enhance this exceptional precious stone.
The Customer's perspective
Cedric recounts his experience
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE CAMELEOR FOR THIS PROJECT?
It is through the internet that I discovered Cameleor. I contacted a dozen online jewelers and only Cameleor team took the time to fully understand my project and made proposals that met my budget and my request. I felt a real passion for customer satisfaction …
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE CAMELEOR SERVICE?
We communicated regularly and openly during the creation of the jewel. There have been numerous exchanges until Cameleor found the stone that I was looking for and then drew the jewelry I wanted while respecting as much as possible the budget that I had assigned to the project. I found that having a 3D rendering was a real bonus to see my future signet ring, only one change was necessary to match 100% what I wanted.
In addition, living outside of the EU, I can enjoy tax refund. Cameleor has arranged to send me the documents that allowed me to recover the amount of VAT (very few merchants are willing to do this sort of effort).
HOW DOES THIS PIECE OF JEWELLERY REFLECT WHO YOU ARE?
This jewel really suits me because for several years I wanted to find a signet ring set with a ruby but without results. So I decided to commission a bespoke item. Since my teenage, I have always found the ruby beautiful and facinating and I told myself that one day I’ll have one. I expected to find that ring in my travels but the little that I saw was not good enough and would not have lasted in time. Indeed, I also have this desire to pass something personal to my son one day … And this type of jewelry is in my mind very personal.
I’ll soon be 40 years old and wanted to realize this dream that never left me. And the result really fits my expectations. I am extremely satisfied.
