Ceylon and World Sapphires
About Ceylon Sapphires
Ceylon sapphires are a particularly beautiful sapphire that is found in Sri Lanka. The name 'Ceylon' derives from British colonial times and is still used to refer to these sapphires. The sapphire mines in Sri Lanka are among some of the oldest known and still produce exceptional gems today. These sapphires are incredible and are highly desired for the rich, vivid blues and are a very popular choice for engagement rings.
The Ceylon sapphires shown here are just a small selection of what is available. If you are looking for something in particular please contact me and let me know your requirements. If you've been looking for a while you will know just how difficult it is to find that perfect stone. It can be pretty confusing out there and there is nothing quite like coming in, sitting down and looking at the sapphires in front of you and talking to someone like myself. I'm here to help you find that stone and answer all the questions you might have when it comes to these beautiful gems.
Please note, photographing coloured gemstones is very challenging especially when trying to capture the beauty, richness and interplay of colours. Sapphires ideally need to be seen in the hand to fully appreciate just how wonderful and unique they are. I have tried my best but the camera and my abilities can only do so much. Pictures that have a white background were taken in my studio using daylight balanced light bulbs and can be useful to compare sapphires. Pictures with a grey background were taken using filtered natural daylight. I find that these two methods interpret the colours of a sapphire a little differently and I personally tend to lean towards the filtered natural daylight as being a better representation of the actual stone viewed in the hand. However, I have found that if you like the picture you will love the gem.
I am able to offer the public one of the finest curated selections of precious sapphires in Sydney.
