Checkerboard Cushion Fair Trade Green Sapphire Fold Solitaire Engagement Ring

1 item left

Sapphire engagement ring with a genuine checkerboard cushion Fair Trade sapphire in a celery green color shade. The unique sapphire will be mounted in a half bezel setting in this unique engagement ring. The solitaire setting grows out of the rounded ring shank seamlessly. The ring will be carved out of wax , cast in precious metal alloy and hand set and hand finished.

I have only 1 sapphire left available as shown. 

  • Weight:     1.26ct
  • Size:    6x6mm
  • Shape:     cushion cut
  • Clarity:     Eye Clean -at arms length, small inclusions at close up and under magnification
  • Treatment:     Heated
  • Origin:     Malawi, Fair Trade

The one shown in the ring mounting has a gorgeous soft warm green color with only a few faint inclusions. The few faint small inclusions can be seen under magnifications but are not noticeable at arm's length when the ring is worn at the finger. The faceted Sapphire is about 1.26 carat, 6 x 6 mm square. It's the sapphire shown in all first ring photos, the stone on the right in image #7 and on the left in image # 8.

The second sapphire is SOLD and made into the bridal ring set you see in last images and video. It has a cooler green shade and more needle-like rutile inclusions. Due to the inclusions it's a bit less expensive than the other one. Still the inclusions are not noticeable when the ring is worn. It just gives it a bit more speckle. The sapphire is about 1.3 carat, 6 x 6 mm square. It's the sapphire shown on the left in image #7 and on the right in image #8 (last image).

The top of both sapphires has a checkerboard facet design. The sapphires were mined in Malawi and are Fair Trade level 1 stone. Like most available sapphires the gemstones have been heated to enhance its color. Both are very lively stones with excellent cutting.

The sapphire is sourced from Columbia Gem House, a true pioneer in the fair trade gem marketplace. Fair Trade Gems are closely tracked from mine to market to ensure that every gem has been handled according to these strict protocols. Using ethically sources gemstones with recycled metals makes this an Eco-conscious engagement ring.

Beautiful ring

The ring looks even better than I thought. My fiancee loves it so much. Easy experience from choosing the ring to it arriving at my house.

Love it!

Ordered a 5mm hammered band with scattered moissanite,, and it is just gorgeous. Kostanze was so wonderful to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to custom order through nodeform again. The only hitch is that I live in Canada and had to pay additional duties and taxes when the ring arrived. Other than that... Love it!

Beautiful and looks exactly as expected

perfect fit, perfect ring, Fiancé loved it and said yes :)


I bought the Velda ring in rose gold with alexandrite stones and couldn’t be happier! Konstanze helped me determine how it might look as a shadow band with my engagement ring (pictured). It looks better than I even imagined and I am so thrilled! Konstanze was great at keeping in touch, answering questions, and it didn’t hurt that it came so nicely gift wrapped. My husband and I did all our wedding jewelry in-person at our local store (pre-pandemic) and I didn’t know what to expect with an online experience, but it was very personal and turned out perfectly. Thank you!
