White Sapphire Gems
White sapphire is one of the hardest white natural gemstones, second only to diamond. It has a hardness rating of 9 on the Mohs scale and a high refractive index which results in exceptional brilliance and great fire. Although white sapphire may not have the same fire as a well-cut diamond, a sapphire can still make a very impressive jewelry design stand out. White sapphire is one of the most popular gemstones seen in fashion and designer jewelry today. Due to its excellent hardness and overall durability, it is perfectly suitable for everyday jewelry, including bridal, and engagement rings and wedding bands.
White sapphires are a popular choice as melee or as fancy accent stones, which are very small stones used to accentuate larger main or 'center' stones in many jewelry designs. Small white sapphires ranging in size from less than 1 millimeter to 2-3 millimeters are typically very affordable and can be found in multiple matched piece sets. Usually these are heated and given a diamond-cut. Larger white sapphires, especially those which are eye-clean and untreated can be quite expensive as they are quite a rare find. Sri Lanka, formerly referred to as Ceylon, is one of the leading producers for sapphire today, as is Tanzania and Madagascar.

Well I was looking for the perfect stone to set in a ring for my partner. I found this Garnet on a website called Gemselect and it captured my eye. I had to have it for her. It looked as perfect as she does. I got the stone I wanted for $150 shipped straight to me. It’ll be the perfect Christmas present
Working on a special anniversary gem collection for my wife, and was able to find almost everything on this one site. Having bought from yall before, this was a no-brainer on where to go for the right stones/buying experience.
