The Sri Lankan Government’s State Gem Corporation ensures strict labor, trade and environmental protocols are met. Mining is closely regulated and restricted to small-scale operations where heavy equipment is forbidden. This ensures that the land is not over-used and surrounding environment is not damaged.
Each and every sapphire we sell is mined and cut by a small group of artisanal adult miners in an open-trade market place under environmentally-responsible (small-scale, low-impact) circumstances with regard to the health and safety of workers; working seasonally, miners share the costs, labor and profits from the sale of any gemstones found and all land is reset back to its original, natural state. Each miner works in a cooperative known as a Karahaula and any person under the age of 18 is prohibited in participating in gem stone mining.
Because of the Sri Lankan Government’s oversight of gem mining, markets remain stable and future generations are free to enjoy an environment free of damage.

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.
