Sapphire is a variety of the mineral corundum, and its color is most typically blue. The sapphire’s value is mainly based on color, clarity, size, cut, overall quality and the geographic origin. Significant sapphire deposits are located in Eastern Australia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, China (Shandong), Madagascar and East Africa. The intensity, the hue and the saturation of the color are also very characteristic and vary by origin; for example Kashmir sapphires are a cornflower color and have a slightly milky surface. Burmese are darker royal blue and Sri Lankan are generally bigger and lighter colored sapphires.
Launched in 2016, Fabergé’s fluted engagement rings make a uniquely colorful statement. Since its acquisition by Gemfields in 2013 – one of the world’s leading suppliers of responsibly sourced colored gemstones – the jeweler has been able to cherry-pick its most impressive gemstones, and there is no doubt that the African ruby that forms the centerpiece in this ring is a wonderful one, its deep, rich red complemented by the warm rose gold. What really makes this ring stand out, however, is the row of rubies encircling the finger, accompanied by the pretty fluted design and a single diamond beneath.
The collection exemplifies ‘the art of color’, seamlessly fusing extraordinary colored gemstones, artistic ingenuity and exceptional craftsmanship. Fabergé’s vibrant gemstones are chosen for their exquisite color, cut, clarity and character. This collection celebrates special lifetime events, milestones and memorable moments.
