Hard to find. This outstanding 55.58 carat unheated, no treatment Morganite is a classic Collector's Piece. Displaying the coveted deep peach color inherent to untreated Morganite, exceptional cutting and explosive brilliance, it is a gemstone of note. The imagery doesn't begin to capture the true beauty and specifically the high levels of brilliance in this piece.
An incredible, uniquely colored Malaia Garnet radiating with gorgeous red, orange and pink tones that dance deep within the stone, set in an elegant ribbon of 18k white gold without the rhodium that enhances the wonderful colors of the stone beautifully and really make it jump out. Fabulous!
This wonderful Padparadscha Sapphire is from our Legacy Collection and was mined in the Umba River Valley in 1983. It was a lovely alluvial crystal. It is entirely untreated, no heat, no treatment at all. It is very clean - flawless except for a very faint needle only visible with magnification - this is a classic signature of a natural Sapphire. Gorgeous pinkish orange hues with lots of brilliance due to excellent cutting. An incredible stone!
A gorgeous Rubellite Tourmaline. A very intense red with hints of orange under some lights. A very well cut Radiant with plenty of light return and sparkle. Flawless clarity complete its pedigree. Set vertically in a ring as a Solitaire or with some Diamonds down the band and you'll have yourself a striking ring!
A real beauty! Top grade Mahenge Red Spinels are a true rarity in today's market. The gem rush of earlier in the decade that made Mahenge a household name in the gem industry is long over, and 2+ carat top grade reds from this deposit are but a memory....Except for this one. A truly extraordinary stone. Flawless and exceptional color. Exploding with brilliance. A true rarity.
Mined in 2008, we have held onto this beauty in our Vault Collection. This wonderful stone was one of the gorgeous crystals unearthed in the gem rush that engulfed Mahenge in Tanzania during the period. The rush was short but sweet. Some superb crystals were found but the deposit lasted only a short time before being mined out. This piece is a superb stone. An incredible, intense red hue with hints or pink and orange under certain light sources. You don't find these every day!
This is an exceptional, all-natural pink Sapphire from our Legacy Collection. It was panned out of the mighty Umba River in 1988 and we have held onto it all these years. It is very high clarity, beautifully cut and it really glows. Superb color. A superb gemstone.
This absolutely superb Padparadscah Sapphire has been in our vault collection since it was mined in 1979. Mined in the renowned Umba Valley in Tanzania where so many amazing gems came from in that period. The world acclaimed gem gravels that yielded this stone are now gone & alluvial pieces like this one are but a memory. Boasting intoxicating hues of pink & orange, entirely untreated, beautifully cut with a myriad of pavilion facets launching light from within. Spectacular, very rare.
