Life Of A Sapphire
This diagram explains the process of a sapphire to ring "At Sapphire Ring Co".
This diagram explains the process of a sapphire from the mine to the ring for jeweler's resulting in much higher priced sapphire rings & sapphire jewelry.
This is not only a life cycle of both sapphires but is the life cycle of almost all gem stones. Today, Thailand is responsible for the supply and trade of 80% of the worlds supply of gemstones. Like London and Antwerp, who have become famous for diamonds, Thailand has become the main trade port for all colored gem stones.
Please read or page on Thailand and the role they play in both the sapphire and ruby industry.
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.
