Stone of the month :
the Saphire

the Saphire

Precious stones have always fascinated men. Sapphire is the divine stone par excellence.

The Persians even thought that the Earth rested on a gigantic sapphire whose reflections colored the sky in blue. From the family of ‘Corindons’, the Saphir sports absolutely all the colors, the blue remaining to this day the most known of the general public, the nuances of the blue sapphire vary according to its origin. The darkest blues often come from Australia, Vietnam or Thailand. While the most pastels can come to us from Sri Lanka, the intermediate blue says the “blue king” remains today the most popular. Sapphire remains, at equal quality, the least expensive stone of the four precious stones (diamond, ruby, sapphire, emerald). But a sapphire (of good quality) from 15 carats cut starts to become a rarity.

Below these weights are more easily found. Marc-Arnaud Pavageau offers you here a selection of sapphires of very good quality, by their color, their brilliance, their size and their weight.
