The sapphires in these earrings are not only magnificent in both size and colour, but are also unheat treated Ceylonese sapphires making them even more special and amazing to admire. For centuries it was known that if a sapphire or ruby was placed into a fire it will improve its colour and clarity, and although the technology in doing this has now changed, people have been heat treating sapphires and rubies ever since for this reason. This treatment is worldwide accepted as a normal treatment and not deceiving in any way and is accepted as a standard treatment for sapphires and rubies as it remains stable and does not damage the stone.
