Hi Marc, This is Amazing! I've never experienced such fast shipping! I was noticed on a Wednesday that my items had been shipped, and on already on the following Monday I had the parcel at home! From US to Sweden in Europe! The Tanzanites I ordered are perfectly just what I requested! Thank you very much Marc! This means a lot for me! I will for sure recommend you further and come back for more orders! Wish you a nice day! Best regards, Queenie H. of Stockholm Sweden (bought loose tanzanites)
Hi Marc, I received my ring today. It fits perfectly, the color of the topaz is beautiful! I almost wish I had chosen a larger stone. Thank you, Mary A. of Modesto CA (bought a swiss blue topaz gold ring)
Cardy was AMAZING! It took 45 minutes. Everyone warned me that I would be without my ring for weeks, and you helped me get away from that. You have been extremely responsive and fantastic for all of this. I really appreciate you, and DEFINITELY would recommend you to anyone I can. You are very much running your business very well. Not to mention, my ring is beautiful!!! Exactly what I wanted. Katie F. of San Francisco CA (bought alexandrite engagement ring)
Hi Marc, I got my ring yesterday.. love it! Looks great! I like the way the prongs are done and the ruby is beautiful! Thanks, Brigitte L. (bought Chatham Ruby and AfricaGems made the ring)
Dear Marc, I have a confession to make. I lost my original engagement ring, a Stuller setting for an asscher cut and a cushion Chatham Sapphire. I wanted a ring that looked close to that original one. You made it happen! Actually, your mil grain work and stone setting was better than the original which was off centered. Thank you. Regards, Christine Y (bought Chatham Blue Sapphire and we made the ring)
Marc, Received the stone. It’s beautiful! We now have a new place to order stones from and feel confident in the quality! Thank You, Clayton M. (bought loose pink tourmaline gem)
Hi Marc, Thank you, I received the stone on Wednesday as you indicated. I appreciate the quick turn around time. Pleasure doing business with you and your site will be one of my top gem shopping sites after this business experience. I did enjoy the extra haribo snack. Thank you once again, Danny C. (bought a round 1 carat loose blue sapphire for engagement ring)
First diamonds are in the mail. Had gone away for a week and nobody at home dropped the mail in the box. Apologies. Picked up my pendant with the new ones and they look beautiful. My next purchase will be emeralds...Thanks, Marc. Li B (bought and exchanged enhanced blue diamonds)
Hi Marc, The bracelet arrived this morning and as you said it looks stunning and I know she will love it. Could you please send a Cert of Authenticity (Similar to the one sent for the 2 loose stones) and a full invoice for the total amount for insurance purposes at my end. If you need to send copies by post please send to, Alan H. (bought a tanzanite bracelet)
Hi Marc, I just wanted to say how delighted I was to receive the Tanzanite bracelet for Christmas. I understand from my husband, Alan, that you were extremely helpful with the making of the bracelet, it sounds like it caused a few problems at times, not least due to Alans bank! I just wanted to let you know that I am thrilled with the bracelet, the stones are beautiful and it looks lovely, so thank you for all your help! I hope you and your family had a good Christmas and very best wishes for a healthy, happy New Year. Kind regards, Sue H. (husband bought tanzanite bracelet)
Hi Marc, I just received the opal and it is gorgeous, as always I am very pleased with my purchase. I was looking at different pendants, it's a Christmas present for my daughter. I saw a multi-gem one that I liked. Item pendant 650870s. Should I order it on line or could you just do it. Also will you extend the 25 off discount on that item? Again, thanks for all your help,Terese U. (bought stunning loose black opal gem)
Good Afternoon Marc, Thank you so much selling me this amazing stone, I can assure you it will be well loved. I thought you might enjoy how much people love the blue spinel you sold me. I posted a few photos on PS last night and will likely post more in the next few days. Again thank you, I really do love it and I am wearing it even as I type this! Katherine S. (bought large blue spinel gemstone)
My wifes stone got here this morning. She was in awe of how gorgeous a stone it was. It is replacing a stone in a ring that was stolen and in our opinion we think it is even nicer than the stone it replaced. Once set we will be whole again lol. Again thank you for having the stone available and for you call concerning shipping. We will certainly recommend you to any of our friends who are looking for QUALITY stones. Doc Mc (bought loose oval padparadscha gemstone)
Hi Marc- just wanted to thank you for finding the 4.4mm size for me, and also for the quick refund on the 4mm. So glad I found your website! Cristy S. (bought loose white sapphires)
Hi Marc, I just want to say thank you so much! The pendant is so beautiful..well done! The bale also fits perfectly. I have a question about the negative ions created by tourmaline..now can one just wear it to experience the negative ions or does there have to be pressure applied to release the negative ions? I'm just curious. Thank you Dawn T (bought custom tourmaline pendant)
Marc, The ring arrrived yesterday and it is gorgeous! Thank you so much for creating the perfect piece with this sapphire. This ring will become an heirloom. Henry G (bought custom spessartite garnet 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)
I'll put them in the mail today. I want you to know that I really appreciate how amenable you have been. Your A+ rating is exactly right. I will continue to do business with you when I have other needs. My sister has also been checking out the site for sapphires based on the excellent service I received. Thanks again, Jim W.of Bangor MI (bought loose emeralds)
Will do! I'm in Denver on business until Saturday. I'll get it shipped out ASAP upon my return - next Monday most likely. Thank you for all of your help. Especially your guarantee and return policy. Made purchasing the gem online much more comfortable. Ironically, my jeweler also loosely knew your father and had a very good opinion of him. Thanks again Marc! Doug M from Camarillo CA (bought loose blue sapphire)
Marc, Your fantastic customer service makes it easy to support AfricaGems! Looking forward to surprising my wife with the Onyx ring. Regards, Michael S. from Boise ID (bought onyx diamond pendant)
Hi Marc, So far I'm very happy with the sapphire I purchased. My plan is to mount it in a tanzanite ring that I have (the tanzanite is very light in color and I've never been happy with it which is a surprise since it's also a Levian purchase). The setting has two sides with the stone suspended in between. I think the light will catch it magnificently! Thanks for checking on my order! Rita K. from Garland TX (bought Chatham emerald stone)
Hi Marc, Just to let you know that the stone was delivered today. Pitty it is dark now so can not see the true stae, but I am happy to see it here with the certs!I hope to do business with you again in the future! Thank you for you help, patience, Regards Wim D. of Dubai (bought loose oval alexandrite)

Dear Marc, I just received the four turquoise gemstones that I had ordered. They are beautiful. I am very happy with the quality and will be ordering some more gemstones soon.Thanks Baljinder K. (bought loose turquoise gems)
Marc, I just wanted to let you know that I received the ring today and it’s beautiful, she’s gonna love it! Thank you again for all you’ve done. I was concerned about ordering something liker this over the internet but you’ve made this entire process very easy and your communication with me has been outstanding. Everything was exactly as you described it…perfect! David M. of Atlanta GA (bought custom Alexandrite diamond ring)

The Beauty of A Natural Pink Sapphire Gemstones
Even for people who aren't fans of the color pink there's no argument that the pink sapphire is one of the most beautiful gems in the world. Although yellow gold is a favorite setting for most gems, when a pinksapphire is set in a white gold mounting or platinum mounting, it becomes truly a gorgeous gemstone to behold. If you're considering buying a pink sapphire, just remember there are a few details to keep in mind, such as what you can expect to pay. Before getting into those facts though let's first examine the history of the pink sapphire.
Pink Sapphire History
The pink sapphire is not only a gorgeous gemstone, it's also the birthstone of September and is often associated with the zodiac signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Taurus. Over the millenniums kings and religious figures both used pink sapphires, and other colors such as blue sapphire gems, for reasons beyond their beauty. Many of them believed the pink sapphire offered protection from evil, increased physical health and greater power, not to mention being a link to the sub-conscious mind. Even to this day there are still cultures where the pink sapphire is revered for these qualities and feel it attracts divine favor. Many modern spiritualists believe the pink sapphire can take negative emotions and transforming them into positive ones like contentment, love or joy.
Why Is the Pink Sapphire Is So Rare?
In a chemically pure state, sapphires themselves have no color and along with Ruby, are known as corundum. When corundum has traces of titanium oxide, the sapphire has a pink coloration, making it a pink sapphire. This process also makes pink sapphires one of the most sought after and rare of the sapphire gems, just behind blue sapphires and the famed padparadscha sapphire, which in turn makes it one of the most expensive. As with blue sapphires and ruby, any pink sapphire that has not undergone heat treatment will be priced at a premium. All gemstones sold by AfricaGems.com are sold with full treatment disclosure. A pink sapphire can often match or exceed blue sapphire prices in value. In addition, because of the rarity of the pink sapphire you won't often find one beyond one carat in size in fine gem quality.
Buying a Pink Sapphire
In closing, don't expect pink sapphires to be 'cheap'. Anything in a fine gem quality will command a high price. Demand and supply dictate price so since pink sapphires, especially larger stones, are so difficult to find it makes them more expensive. As with any gemstones, be sure that your pink sapphire is free of any blemishes or cracks. Remember too, the more brilliant and vibrant the color the pink sapphire is, the better quality it is. Also look for a pink sapphire that is as pure a pink as possible. So just keep these facts in mind the next time you want to go shopping for the pink sapphire.
Pink Sapphire - Beautiful Collection of Natural Certified Pink Sapphire Loose Gemstones Pink Sapphire gemstones, are one of the most treasured of all gemstone species. The range of pink sapphire hues and tones is vast. A high quality pink sapphire gemstone must have an intense, vivid pink color. But pink sapphire is really just light red. In the gemstone trade, sapphires with a pink shade are now known either as pink ruby or pink sapphire. Loose, high quality faceted pink sapphire gemstones have always been an AfricaGems trademark. We select our pink sapphires for color, clarity and price. Pink sapphire is very durable and lacks any cleavage, which has made pink sapphire one of the most important precious gemstones for centuries. The most valuable gems come from Sri Lanka, with Madagascar being another important producer. Flaws and inclusions diminish the price more so than in fine rubies. Lighter tone pink sapphires should be relatively free of inclusions, whereas deeper tone pink sapphires can have some inclusions that do not detract from the appearance of the gem. Pink sapphires are commonly heat treated to improve color and clarity, but treated stones do not command the prices that a fine, vivid pink natural color gem does. Many of our sapphire gemstones 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.
