We offer one of the widest choices of natural and independently certified sapphires. We are a "one stop" store for customers to either select or build their perfect sapphire ring. Our store is unique with both pictures and full video, and we also try to carry as much educational material & information on the world of colored Sapphire gem stones to help in your understanding and appreciation of what makes a Natural Sapphire such a wonderful stone.
Please contact us at any time with any questions. We aim to carry the best inventory of only finest genuine Sapphires and Rubies helped by the support of our full time Gem brokers in Sri Lanka. We are dedicated to offering the highest quality of service to each customer whether you are looking for an existing custom sapphire ring or wish to work with us on creating a new custom ring of your choice.
We will not buy or sell sapphires from countries with no child labor laws or without a fair and open trade market and we look for countries which practice strict and safe mining procedures. Please read our company ethics page.
What ever your questions please talk to us. We are always very happy to hear from you and will try to help in anyway we can, from the smallest of questions to full information on our natural sapphire ring's and why today we are one of the only companies to offer conflict free sapphires supported with full GIA reports and with a fully independent appraisal by a GIA-certified gemologist.
Here you will see both David ( responsible for the sapphires buying as well as new ring designs ) and Dixie ( responsible for customer service & sales both domestic and international ) working with our own full time gem broker in our two offices; one in Colombo the capital of Sri Lanka (Ceylon), as well as our new office in Beruwala which has just opened in January 2013. Beruwala is now responsible for almost all of Sri Lanka's Sapphire and Ruby sales. Over the past 2-3 years the City of Ratnapura has become very quiet for gem trading in part due to a 3 hour drive from the Capital ( Colombo ). For this reason we now keep an office in the heart of Beruwala Sapphire district for access to the markets on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday. Here Sapphire & Ruby brokers and traders from all over Sri Lanka come with some of the finest sapphires & rubies to trade and sell. With our new office here, the Sapphire Ring company is well placed to pick out only the best Sapphire stones we can find.
Please note: Sapphire Ring Co will NOT sell sapphires which have been exposed to extreme heat, are chemically enhanced or diffused ( All of our sapphires are earth mined genuine natural sapphire and ruby stones )
Please read the small print if you are looking at buying any " natural Sapphire ", normally hidden under " Treatments or Enhancements " or buried inside the educational pages. Over 70% of sapphires sold today as natural sapphires have been enhanced either chemically or with extreme heat using very low grade conundrum ( sapphire ) with little value and with many jewelers being unaware of these new treatments. The price difference for these chemically enhanced or diffusion sapphires is enormous, the price for a diffused oval cut blue sapphire approximately 3 cts is around $50.00 per ct, whereas a natural gentle heat only natural sapphire can cost well over $3500 per ct depending on the color.
Always ask for an independent laboratory report from a full Gemological laboratory. If they are unable to provide this service please contact us and we will be happy to help, even if the sapphire is chosen from another company. We are happy to provide this service for a relatively small fee, so you know you are buying a 100% natural sapphire.
