Ceylon sapphire rings are respected highly for its enduring value and quality. Both sapphires and rubies come from the same gem family of corundum and are the second hardest gemstone after diamond making them both very practical for stones to be set into rings.
Blue sapphires coming from Sri Lanka are known as Ceylon Sapphires. The last 2000 years, Ceylon (now known as Sri Lanka) has provided the world with the most famous sapphires. These blue sapphires from Ceylon are unmatched in colour, brilliance and clarity in comparison to other blue sapphires coming from other countries.
Blue sapphires are being mined in countries such as Africa, Australia, Cambodia, Columbia, Thailand and the United States and although usually attractive often do not match the Ceylonese sapphires in quality of colour and transparency.
The vast majority of sapphires are heat treated which has been a common practice for centuries. This is done to improve both the colour and clarity of the sapphire and is a completely stable and internationally recognised and accepted treatment. However you may still very often find un-heat treated sapphires in many of our antique rings.
