We love Ceylon sapphires. The bright, rich blue hue is unlike any other gemstone, skewing cornflower in some lights and vibrant cerulean in others with the prettiest hint of lavender. These rare, impeccably high quality stones from Sri Lanka are renowned for their remarkable clarity. We adore them, so when we spotted a big, cushion cut Ceylon sapphire in Jack Weir & Son’s 1st Dibs shop, we were smitten.
We could stare into those blue depths forever! But we really should pay at least some attention to the gorgeous Art Deco platinum mounting studded with small, rose cut diamonds. This fabulous, 11 carat unheated sapphire ring is available for $25,000.
Our own 12 carat oval cut Ceylon sapphire is just as magnificent. Set in a considerably more simple platinum band, it features .80 ctw of trillion cut diamonds H/I in color and SI in clarity. This beauty is only $22,995. But if you’re looking for something even more budget friendly…
Meet its 7.58ct Ceylon sapphire little sister. Still set in platinum, and still boasting a generous helping of diamonds (.82ctw to be exact), it’s got all the beauty but on a slightly smaller scale. This ring will set you back $19,995.
