The "Treasure Island" Sri Lanka is globally considered as the best deposit of nature for the finest sapphires - the Ceylon sapphire. The origin of the gemstone is one of the most highly influential factors in determining it's quality and value. Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon, is called “Rathna Deepa” in the native Singhalese language and it means “Land of Gems”. Ceylon is the world’s oldest known source for sapphires and gems offers ideal gemological conditions for the finest sapphire in flawless quality - deep intense color range, high clarity and brilliance. The classic blue sapphires that originate from Sri Lanka are most known and called “Ceylon Blues”, but also very popular are "Fancy Sapphires". Mother nature gives us sapphires in all colors of the rainbow, unique pieces and magnificent beauties convincing with their colourful splendour and brilliance.
