Have you ever seen an Old Mine Brilliant ins Brilliant Story book blue? This is it!!

This stone is part of a group of Natural Sapphires we purchase this week. They are part of an estate. They looked great, but we knew they could be improved so we recut all of them.

All have reports from American Gemological Laboratory. This lab is highly regarded to grading Sapphires and colored Stones. Besides the fact the stones are not heated, the origin of Burma makes them especially covet-able.

The color on this baby will knock you over!

In the photo on the right, you can see what I'm talking about.

The Sapphire on the left is quite a nice one. Believe it or not,
in this particular case, the Sapphire on the left had a higher
price than the stone on the right - which is the stone I chose.
It's making its new owner very happy as you read this.

Many Natural Sapphires are heated during the cutting and finishing process. This one, however, is not heated!

When shopping for the gems we offer, we have incredibly high standards. We want to carry only exceptional diamonds, and sapphires. Yet we want to do this in a way that includes the collectors, and connoisseurs, as well as "normal people" who may want to forgo some of the finer points to get more bang for the buck.

When it comes to sapphires, there is a distinction between heated, and non heated stones. If a sapphire can be cut that keeps the color saturation, and brilliance without heating, it will bring a premium over a heated stone. In some cases, a huge premium.

The evidence of heating is fairly simple for labs to detect.

We have purchased sapphires that were claimed to be non heat stones, and sent them to be graded - every time they've come back non heated. We are very choosy in our sources as well.

No matter how comfortable we are with our sources for Sapphires, we will only guarantee a sapphire "non heated" with a legit report to back it up.

The reason we offer heated sapphires is that heating can be considered a part of the cutting process for most sapphire rough. When done properly, it will produce an even color and reduce the appearance of color striations - color banding.

We can obtain non heated sapphires when needed, usually we'll have a few on the site. However, when I see a stone that has a great appearance and reasonable price that has been heated, I like to offer them.
