Consultation and diamond education

Before you start getting creative, you’ll first have to sit through a quick consultation and diamond education session with SOOKEE’s in-house diamond specialist, where you’ll learn about the 4Cs of a diamond – Cut, Clarity, Colour, and Carat.

Here’s a brief explanation of each component:
- Cut: most important factor as it determines the brilliance and sparkle of the diamond
- Clarity: refers to whether there are any flaws in the diamond.
- Colour: diamonds that are more “white” or colourless are considered more valuable than yellowish ones.
- Carat: is not necessarily linked to size, but rather, depends on weight of the diamond
SOOKEE specialises in the Brilliant Rose diamond, which is the only diamond with a patented cut of 66 facets. With 8 more facets than a traditional round brilliant diamond, the Brilliant Rose is shown to have an extremely remarkable light return when viewed through an ASET scope.
In simpler terms: a Brilliant Rose diamond reflects light better, and is thus more dazzling.

Fun fact: the design of the Brilliant Rose diamond’s cut was inspired by the Rosace window of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris:
It’s worth noting that SOOKEE is the only jeweller where you’ll be able to find Brilliant Rose diamonds in Singapore, as they’ve been the sole distributor for them in Singapore since 1999. So if you’d like an extra sparkly diamond with an additional 8 facets as a level up from the usual Ideal Cut, you know where to go.
Apart from being GIA certified, Brilliant Rose diamonds come with their own Mark of Distinction – think of it as a “double authentication” of sorts
The friendly staff will let you view the diamonds through various scopes, so that you’ll be able to make a highly informed choice – right down to the most minute details which may not be visible to the naked eye.
Designing the ring
Now here comes the fun bit: customising your ring!
An engagement ring isn’t just a pretty accessory – it’s also a symbol of love and commitment. Which is why SOOKEE has got skilled jewellery designers on board to help craft out unique pieces from scratch, based on significant events in your romance. Feel free to thumb through their inspiration album to see past styles tailor-made based on true love stories!

The possibilities are endless – they can even create intricate shapes like snowflakes, or incorporate your initials into the design.

After a pencil sketch is done in-store, it’ll be brought back to SOOKEE’s headquarters for 3D rendering. This series of realistic digital images will show you how the ring will look like in real life, viewable from various angles. You don’t have to make an appointment just to see it as it’ll conveniently be sent over to you via WhatsApp or Email.

At this stage, you can fine-tune it until you are completely satisfied, before a 3D-printed wax mould is made. With this 3D wax mould, you’ll be able to try on and have a feel of how the ring will be like before the actual thing is made.
The whole process from the sketching to receiving the actual ring will take about 4-6 weeks, depending on the amount of adjustments required. That’s pretty quick for something designed from scratch!
The finished product – an exquisite proposal ring with royal vibes
SOOKEE also has over 60 lovely proposal ring settings, which you can mix and match different components of, if you’d rather pick from pre-existing designs. For example, you can choose the heart-shaped prongs of one setting, and pair it with the pave side band of another. In that sense, your ring will still be unique as its various elements have been specially chosen by you.
Twisted bands, halo settings, and pave side stones – they have it all
Comes with a box for best presentation and safekeeping
