The rarest and purest has always been sought out by the rich and powerful. Unheated gem quality sapphires and rubies are coveted in the company of fine art and vintage wine collections. Less than 2 percent of corundum gemstones are saved from the enhancing ovens, the fire pits at the source where most stones are subjected to improve the color. The ones that are cherry picked first are born with beautiful color and need no push to bring out their natural hue other than a good cut and polish. Our offerings are GIA, AGL and/or GRS certified "born this way."
