Corundum

The gems in the corundum family are better known as sapphire and ruby. Sapphires can be found in just about every color imaginable. Some red corundum earns the special designation of "ruby," and is differentiated from sapphire only by its color. As the red color lightens into pink, the stone becomes pink sapphire (although there is no good agreement on exactly where this line should be drawn).

Below you'll find a small selection of the sapphires and rubies that we've cut and sold over the years. Due to their excellent hardness and durability, sapphires are an increasingly-popular choice for engagement ring center stones. Many of the gems below now grace the ring finger of brides world-wide.
