The ring and earrings arrived just now, beauitful. Thanks for the great service again Michael D. of Naples FL (bought blue topaz jewelry set)

Dear Mr. Sarosi, The ring just arrived. I do not mind telling you that the photograph did not do it justice, it is wonderful. I have been searching for this ring since I saw one in a painting over forty years ago. Thank you. Michael A of Boise ID (bought black onyx ring)

Marc, Thank you so much! You may have thought it took longer than expected but we thought it was quite expedient. Thank you for continually confirming for us our decision to purchase from Africa Gems. This has been a wonderful transaction. We'll be here all day so as soon as it arrives I'll let you know. Happy Valentine's Day, Jennefer P of San Deigo CA (bought custom emerald ring & band)

Blue Sapphire - AfricaGems Collection of Unheated & Heated Certified - Natural Blue Sapphire Gemstones
Blue Sapphire gemstones, one of the most treasured and timeless of all gemstones, encompass a wide variety of color tones and shades. Fine quality blue sapphire gemstones must have a vivid, intense blue color, sometimes called a "cornflower blue sapphire". Loose, high quality faceted blue sapphire gemstones have always been an AfricaGems trademark, we have more than 300 individual blue sapphires available to you immediately. We have an unusually large selection of fine quality unheated blue sapphire at very attractive prices. Like our other loose gemstone collections, we select our blue sapphires for color, clarity and price. Like all sapphires, blue sapphire is very durable and lacks any cleavage, which has made blue sapphire one of the most important precious gemstones for centuries.

The most valuable gems come from Sri Lanka, Burma and Kashmir. Kashmir production is almost nonexistent. Other important high quality sources recently discovered are from Madagascar. Besides color, evenness and uniformity of color, or lack of zoning, is very important. Flaws diminish the price more so than in fine rubies. Blue sapphires are commonly heat treated to improve color and clarity, but treated stones do not command the prices that a fine, vivid blue natural color gem does. Many of our blue sapphire gems are accompanied by a third party certificate and appraisal. Many of these sapphires have been recut in the USA to American standards and cannot be compared to native cut gems. Our USA cut sapphires have unsurpassed brilliance, and a much sharper "look" which makes all the difference in the finished jewelry product.
