The Best Push Presents: Fine Jewellery

Have you ever heard of a push present? A push present is a present that a partner, family member, or even the mother gives to herself to mark the occasion of her giving birth to her child. Of course, a new baby is a fantastic present on its own, but there’s no harm in giving extra thanks to your significant other with a little push present, because let’s face it… pregnancy and childbirth are no joke. At Anpé Atelier, there have been quite a few customers looking to buy push presents to represent their family and children. This piece will represent a life changing moment, and will be sure to be one of the most treasured and worn pieces of jewellery in your collection. Push presents can be jewelry that have the baby’s initials, a color to represent their gender, or anything that the mother absolutely loves!

Birthstone Jewellery

Birthstones are incredibly popular when it comes to picking out jewellery for ourselves or a loved one. It gives instant meaning to the piece by signifying the month we were born. The story behind the origination of birthstones dates back to the breastplate of Aaron, which was adorned with twelve different gemstones, representing the signs of the zodiac and 12 Israeli tribes. Since then, the National Association of Jewelers has created a modern list for the different months and birthstones. Each stone has an incredibly rich history and symbolism to different civilizations and time periods.

At Anpé Atelier Cph we use semi-precious and precious gemstones with a high hardness on the Mohs Scale. Using these stones that are well suited for fine jewellery ensures that we are creating pieces, that will last a lifetime and more.

Read our blog post on “The Colorful World Of Gemstones,” to get more information and facts on the different stones.

The January birthstone is garnet, and thereunder tsavorite. Tsavorites were discovered in 1967 in Tanzania and range from varying deep to light green hues. With a hardness of 7.5, they are similar to emeralds, but are much more durable and brilliant and has no inclusions.

The February birthstone is Amethyst. These stones comes in a variety of purple tones. They have a hardness of 7 and below, meaning they aren’t as durable as other stones. At Anpé we work with precious gemstones that have a high hardness on the Mohs Scale, as they are much more resitant to scratches and thereby everyday wear. Amethysts can be found in a range of places such as Sri Lanka, Brazil and Siberia.

Custom Jewellery – The Process

Approximately 80 % of the jewellery, I create, is customized jewellery created for that one special person, who either wants to celebrate her or himself, wants to pop the big question or wishes to treat a loved one with a personalized piece of jewellery. I love creating bespoke pieces, as this allows me to be creative together with the customer and make a piece, that is made exactly from that persons dreams and wishes.

Are you looking to create a unique, custom piece for yourself or a loved one? Then here’s a short introduction to the customization process. 

Step 1 – Gemstone

First step is to pick the gemstone, you’ve always dreamt of in the perfect color, shape and cut. Start by letting me know your budget and what wishes you have regarding gem, size and color, and I’ll send you suggestions for beautiful gems. We have a beautiful stock of sapphires, tsavorites, tourmalines and spinels in our showroom, and on top of that we work closely together with our gem-supplier, who is sourcing specifically for your need as well.

Step 2 – Design 

Next step is discussing the design in which you want the gemstone set. We create designs completely from scratch and will sketch suggestions in hand for you based on your wishes. If you see an Anpé design, that you like, but wish to get it with a different stone, color, metal or want to add or delete few details to make the design your own, that is possible as well.

Step 3 – CAD and computer graphic

Once you’ve decided on a design, we will create a CAD and computer graphic for you, so that you have the absolute best way of visualizing the finished design, before saying “go”.

Step 4 – Production

Once you’ve proved the design based on the CAD and computer graphic, the creation of your special piece will start. Expect a delivery time of 4-6 weeks from approving the CAD to delivery of your bespoke jewellery.

How To Build Your Own Fine Jewellery Collection

Buying fine jewellery is a long term investment, and if you’re looking to start a jewellery collection, don’t settle for the most affordable choice. When picking jewellery, you’ll definitely want high quality, and that only comes with fine jewellery. It is more expensive indeed, but it is worth every penny.

Fine jewellery is used to describe jewellery made out of precious metals and often times it consists precious and semi-precious gemstones as well. At Anpé Atelier we use only solid gold in 14kt and 18kt, which are hard metals, that won’t break with normal wear. If something should happen to your piece, the hard metal makes it is easy to repair and rework.

While solid gold pieces can be expensive, it is well worth the investment to have something stunning that lasts a lifetime, and can be passed down through generations. On top of that, it more than holds the value throughout time.

Here are some ways to start your own personal fine jewellery collection (but really, there are no rules, so go nuts, if you’re all comfortable):

1. Know what you like and don’t mind other people’s opinion
Everyone’s taste is different from each other, and the fun part about building a fine jewellery collection and investing in high quality pieces is, that you can wear it every day and be all happy about it, when glancing down at it.

2. Start off with a small piece first
Just to get started and to feel the difference between having a fine jewellery piece and a fashion jewellery piece. 

3. Go after something, that matches your style from the beginning
And choose something that you can see yourself wear for many years! Style and taste is different from person to person, and only you will know, what matches you and your colorful self. 

4. Wish for jewellery for special occasions
A great way to slowly build your own personal fine jewellery collection is to wish for fine jewellery for special occasions, such as birthdays, holidays, graduations and anniversaries. Having a special moment attached to a piece of jewellery brings more incentive to wear and show it off, as well as keep it for a lifetime. 

5. Treat yourself
And speaking of special occasions, treat yourself with fine jewellery to celebrate yourself. Fine jewellery doesn’t require a special occasion or someone else giving it to you. It can also be amazing to treat yourself with a special piece – just because you deserve it, have reached a personal goal in your life, gone through a hard time or simply because you’re in love with a piece and want to make yourself happy with it.

6. Mix and match
Depending on your style, try to find pieces that you can wear together! Find rings that look great next to each other or stacked on top of each other so you can pair them wherever you go, and whenever you feel like it. Mixing and matching multiple earrings on your ear is also a great way to add some extra sparkle and color.

7. One of a kind
Once you have a few key pieces in your collection, start to venture towards a unique, one of a kind and stunning piece – maybe even a customized piece, you’re doing for yourself. Though this is an investment piece, it adds a stunning look to your style, and you can easily wear your unique pieces together with your other amazing jewellery pieces.

8. Add color
Don’t be afraid to add some color to your jewellery. Many people think that investing in fine jewellery means only gold and diamonds. At Anpé Atelier, diamonds come second to stunningly unique and colorful gemstones, primarily sapphires, tourmalines, tsavorites and spinels. The colors are truly endless for gemstones to choose from, meaning anyone can find a color that suits them. Colorful pieces are rare and unique in the fine jewellery industry, so investing in one will make for a great talking piece and something you won’t see anyone else having.

2020 Engagement Ring Trends

With the new year rapidly approaching, we couldn’t wait to talk about the new engagement ring trends coming about in 2020. “Trendy” probably wouldn’t be the first thing one would look for in a ring to be worn for a lifetime, as trends come and go, however, looking at what cuts and shapes are popular at the moment doesn’t hurt. 

Below we’ve listed trends we love and will be seeing all throughout 2020! 

Colorful Gemstones:

There’s no doubt that Anpé Atelier is a fan of colorful jewellery, so it is no surprise that gemstones would be first on our list. Women have started shying away from diamonds and looking towards something more unique and one of a kind, like sapphires, personal birthstones, emeralds, aquamarines, rubies and so much more.

Everything we work with at Anpé has a splash of color on it. We love creating classic style engagement rings that have a colorful twist, such as our Nalaya ring, that has a light yellow sapphire, creating sort of a color changing effect, set in an 18kt rose gold band, adorned with VS diamonds. 

Or our incredible Sudu Nil ring, that brings about huge Princess Diana vibes. It is a natural blue sapphire surrounded by VS diamonds and set in an 18kt white gold band.

Celebrities from Halle Berry to Mariah Carey has been sporting their colorful and unique gemstone engagement rings for some time now, see here

The Emerald Cut Engagement Ring:

The emerald cut engagement ring has been slowly growing in popularity over the past years. However, coming up in 2020, it is expected that this cut will reign in popularity in the new year. Brides are moving away from the round cut style, to a larger looking shapes such as emerald cuts and oval shapes.

This style of cut creates a striking flash of light and truly stands out against other traditional cuts, such as round or cushion shapes. The exquisite shape of the emerald cut elongates any wearers finger, to create an incredibly flattering and elegant style. This unique aesthetic can be found on the fingers of Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce to Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. 

Our Anduru ring is a perfect example of the emerald cut, and is perfect for an engagement ring. It is made from 18kt. yellow gold, with a natural unheated black blue spinel (3.08ct.), accompanied by a rough band, adorned by a scatter of VS diamonds (0.03ct.)

Some other emerald cut ring styles from Anpé Atelier include Rosa Malava, Nil Pata, and Sanré

Oval Engagement Rings

Oval engagement rings have certainly been popular in the past, however, in 2020, this style is expected to be one of the most coveted by women. This could be from the surge of celebrities, such as Hailey Baldwin and Blake Lively, wearing such a style. 

The oval shape is an incredibly beautiful option, as it is an elongated and soft version of the popular round engagement ring. This style lengthens the wearers finger, while the ring appears larger than it is, due to an increased surface area. 

Our Ovala Kara ring is the perfect example of the oval ring in action. It is made from 18kt. yellow gold with a natural unheated pink tourmaline and VS diamonds throughout the rough band. 

Some other oval shape rings from Anpé Atelier include our Alokaya ring and Lupayak ring. 

Bespoke Engagement Rings

We have noticed a sure rise in the demand for bespoke engagement rings from our customers at Anpé Atelier. It is the perfect way to create exactly what you’ve always dreamed of having. This is something that we enjoy doing the most. 

“I’ve noticed many people come to me looking for a bespoke engagement ring because they are looking for something that no one else has and is completely personal to them,” Line says. “People are looking to put their own touch on the design and also be involved in the process.”

Whether it be picking your favorite gemstone, fusing classic and modern designs together, or even using family jewels to create your bespoke wedding ring, the result will always be one of a kind.
