Sapphires From Madagascar , Madagascar has produced some of the worlds finest sapphire over the years and recently in 1995 large deposits of corundum (sapphire) were found in LLakaka including the worlds 2nd largest sapphire " Millennium Sapphire "
Over recent years Madagascar has become famous for some of the finest pinks sapphires found anywhere in the world and has also found large deposits on fine blue sapphires in what is known as the sapphire belt. Madagascar was on par with Australia for its large deposits of sapphires but since 2005 the decline in the sapphire industry here coupled with a temporary government ban on exporting sapphires had reduced the output dramatically.
The town of Sakaraha is Madagascar's biggest gem trading center.
Madagascar is estimated to carry some of the worlds largest deposits of fine sapphires, many of these sapphires are traded today illegally in the town of Sakaraha which is Madagascar's biggest gem trading center.
In 2017 we have has just started to buy small quantities of high quality untreated sapphires from some of the small private mining companies here, after nearly a 7 year ban on sapphires from Madagascar, Sapphire Ring Company has being working closely with small family owed mining sourcing some of the finest sapphires this country has to offer. These sapphires origin will be shown with our selection of custom sapphires rings for sale.

Today the government of Madagascar is working hard to regulate there sapphire industry here so it can manage the resources for the country and its people. Madagascar is a beautiful this island is sitting off the coast of southern Africa with sapphire's from here share many of the similar characteristics as sapphires from Sri Lanka with the deposit of both of these islands being created at the same location and time approx 165 millions of years ago.

Please note: Sapphire Ring Co closely monitors all countries where sapphires are found,mined and sold today carrying out regular country of origin reports through the GIA as well as our own GIA certified gem Gemologist.
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.
