The name "Sapphire" is derived from Greek word sappheiros, which is Greek for blue. Since Ancient times the Sapphire Blue represented a promise of honesty, loyalty, purity and trust. Up till today, Sapphire Blue gems are one of the most popular gemstone colours for engagement rings. In keeping with this tradition, our brilliant Sapphire Blue CARAT* gems share a similar colour richness with their natural inspirations.
Ruby Red represents love, passion, courage and emotion. For centuries, it was believed that wearing a fine red Ruby bestowed good fortune upon its owner. Rubies have been the prized possession of emperors and kings throughout the ages and CARAT* gems were made to carry this same aura of luxury.
Fancy Yellow gemstones symbolize wisdom, joy, optimism, happiness, and youth. Of all the Fancy Coloured Diamonds, Fancy Yellow Diamonds are the most popular. In the same vein, CARAT* Fancy Yellow gems display a youthful exuberance and are admired for their utter brilliance and beauty.
Pink gemstones never fail to provide head-turning bursts of colour. Fun and fanciful, they are femininity incarnated. Pink is said to symbolize gentleness, love and affection.

Emerald Green is the colour of spring and has long symbolized love and rebirth. As the gem of Venus, it was also considered to aid in fertility.
Cleopatra, Egypt's tempestuous female monarch was as famous for wearing Emeralds in her time as Liz Taylor is for wearing diamonds in our time. Ancient Egyptian mummies were often buried with an Emerald carved with the symbol of verdure – flourishing greenness – on their necks to symbolize eternal youth. Emerald green CARAT* gems add a pop of lavishness and timeless beauty to any look.
Diamond White CARAT* gems follow the long history of folklore that have been attached to diamonds for centuries.

For the most accurate result make sure that you take finger measurements in the evening when the hands are warm, as this is when finger diameter is largest. In colder weather, fingers are slimmer – sometimes up to half a size! You want to make sure that your ring will fit whether the wearer is warm or cool and that it’s never too tight.
