A Sapphire's cut is Unique to that stone unlike a diamond where there is a standard in cuts. " Ideal " sapphires are cut taking into account that one stone’s particular crystal structure makes each stone a unique custom cut. Sapphires come in a rainbow of colors. Many people think of sapphires as being " Blue " but, as you will find, reading our pages, the " world of sapphires" are available in a rainbow of colors and shades. If red, a sapphire is known as a " Ruby " and even though the World Gem Association has added pink to the shades of red, we will treat all sapphires as a sapphire unless it is a true red.
origin Sri Lanka
• Glossary •
Understanding the terms used to describe colors in sapphires and rubies can some times be difficult, here we try to give a index to the wordings which is often used in a description of these fine gemstones.
( please note the index below is for blue sapphires but the same principal applies to sapphires and rubies in general )
Hue : refers to the sapphire's basic color - blue, slight green, strong green, slight purple, and strong purple.
Saturation : ( also called color purity and intensity ) is the extent to which the hue is masked by brown or gray.
Tone : refers to the amount of color in the sapphire ranging from very light to very dark.
• How are Sapphires measured? •
Precious gemstones vary in density, for example when comparing a diamond and a sapphire of the same size, the sapphire will be heavier due to it's larger density. Gemstones are often classified by carats, which is a unit of weight, but for ease of selection and setting, size is a more useful measurement for sapphires, which we list in millimeters (mm). Our standard size for a round sapphire is 6 mm, which is approximately one carat.

• Cuts •
Sapphire Ring Co hand selects all of our sapphires to provide only the best cut sapphires, which are symmetrical, smoothly polished, and even in color and light.
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.
