CEYLON SAPPHIRE

Ceylon sapphire is mined primarily in Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon). These gems are known for the unique color they produce. Because Ceylon sapphire occurs naturally, the color of the stone varies. The noted blue color ranges from very pale or greenish-blue to purplish-blue the most vibrant, almost electric indigo-blue hue. Our collection of genuine Ceylon sapphires has been chosen from the middle of the color spectrum, capturing the heart of the color in its lustrous, soft blue color, with just a hint of lavender. Sapphire used in jewelry is most usually heat-treated or sometimes given chemical diffusion to enhance its color.

Sapphire is the birthstone of September. Genuine sapphires, including Ceylon sapphires, are part of the corundum gem family and are second only to diamonds in hardness.

At a 9 on the Mohs scale of hardness, sapphire is an excellent choice of jewelry because of its durability.
