Checkerboard Cushion Fair Trade Green Sapphire Fold Solitaire Engagement Ring

Size Guide
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.

I just want to say thank you; for your effort, time, and artistry inattention to detail.
My longtime boyfriend, now, fiancé proposed to me with the most stunning Australian Sapphire engagement ring that you helped custom make. He shared with me the process of decision from the color palette to the type of metal for the band - and how you were able to capture a masterpiece. Needless to say, it is perfect!

Thank you so much! I was delighted to create this special ring for you both. Congratulations to you and Kevin!

Excellent Quality and Service

We are so happy with our finished products. The quality cannot be surpassed and the service was excellent. We asked a lot of questions before our order was actually placed and every question was answered professionally and thoroughly. I have already recommended NODEFORM to a couple of my friends! They provide a personal touch with every professional transaction.

Simply perfect!

The ring is simply gorgeous. The stone is truly one-of-a-kind and the craftsmanship is flawless. Dealing with Konstanze was a pleasure and we will be sure to order our wedding rings from her as well. When I presented the ring to my girlfriend the first words out of her mouth weren’t “it’s beautiful” or “i love it” but “it’s perfect”. Can’t beat that!

We both love the ring! The alexandrite stone has amazing sparkle to it and changes colours quite beautifully. It looks great in its white gold semi-bezel setting. Konstanze does some truly amazing work!

Service and workmanship Exceeds!!!

Thank you, Konstanze! Once again, do you have exceeded our expectations! Our rings were returned as if they were new.
We already have the earring to match, now all we need is a matching necklace.
To be continued…. 😁

Made specially for me!

I first ordered the solitaire alexandrite ring, and a few days later I contacted Konstanze to add small alexandrites all around the band. She was kind enough to modify my order. There were a lot of questions from my side along the process and she even sent me pictures of the CAD model to have an idea of how the ring would look like. This is my third order from this shop and the product quality and customer service have always been great

Love it!

This is my 2nd piece from Konstanze and I love it! I hope to be able to buy more from her in the future! I love wearing silver, and it's hard to find someone put this level of live and design into pieces made from recycled silver. I'm super pleased with my new moissanite ring, it matches my style perfectly!


When I opened the box, the ring was more beautiful than I imagined. It highlights my sapphire engagement ring and provides a band of beautiful, bright sparkle. I absolutely love this ring!!! My husband, who is not a fan of jewelry, really likes the unique design of the two rings.

Konstanze was wonderful to work with – patiently answering my questions and doing everything she could to ensure we got the rings I wanted! I am a repeat customer and will be back again. Thank you Konstanze!!

Better in real life

It was such a joy to be able to choose my own Stone for my 50th gift. The Montana sapphire was the perfect size and colour. I will definitely use Nodeform again.
