Australia is the worlds largest producer of sapphires. This is surprising due the fact that the first large deposits were only found in the 1970's. Australia's deposit of sapphires have being mainly used for commercial grade use. Australia has produced some very beautiful sapphires mainly in blue and yellow color sapphire's.
Sapphires in these colors can often carry a yellowish tint in blue and if in yellows the sapphires we have seen carry a greenish tint to them. Australia is today the largest producer of gem quality yellow sapphires. Australian gem quality sapphires are often past of as sapphires from Thailand due the markets value of Thai sapphires being greater.
Sapphire Ring Company has bought several sapphires from Australia over the years in dark blues but today all of our sapphires including our yellow sapphires are from Sri Lanka due to our strong ties their.

Every sapphire we have is a unique stone created by mother nature, which is cut and polished to show off that one stone's color and luster, bringing out the individual character of each gem. Once the sapphire is certified, we hand pick a unique custom ring setting to be made, which is then set by hand for that stone. It takes approximately 3 - 4 months from when a sapphire is hand picked to having the sapphire set and listed for sale at wholesale price. We do keep a wide selection of loose natural sapphires in stock which are not set, so please contact us if you have any questions on any one of our natural sapphire rings or a custom ring setting which you might be considering.
