As a fine jewelry designer here in Dubai, sapphires have become my muse. Forget the diamonds for a moment (although they have their place!), the sapphires have a deep color, whispered storytelling in every piece, which is one among my favorite.
The story of  sapphire begins millions of years ago, far from the hustle and bustle of our showrooms, deep in the earth.

Millions of Years in the Making

Imagine this: millions of years ago under tremendous pressure that is hard to imagine, change is taking place. Ordinary aluminum oxide crystals recognize unique elements such as iron and chromium, slowly and patiently evolving into the sapphires we value today This is a gentle burn, a testament to nature’s work of art over time a scale we can barely comprehend.

The joy of the hunt

Fast forward to today. These precious stones are now held in two main places: scattered along the ancient riverbank, like a forgotten treasure, or hidden in the rocks like a mystery waiting to be unearthed.

Sapphires are mined around the world, from ancient times and continuing into modern day mining efforts. Miners with years of experience and a practiced eye with the help of specialized equipment to remove it effectively. It’s a delicate dance, ensuring that you bring each sapphire to light intact. 

Unleashing the Inner Fire

Fresh from the earth, a sapphire is rough and unpolished. But inside it lies a enchanting potential, a hidden hearth ready to be unleashed. That's in which the skilled artisans are available.

It's like sculpting a masterpiece from a raw diamond within the hard – watching the light capture and dance in the stone is always a moment of natural magic.

From Gemstone to Heirloom

Now comes the part I genuinely love: the design process! i precisely pick out the precise stones for every piece, the intensity shade, the reflection of lighting fixtures every piece has a completely unique tale. Some sapphires demand a formidable, statement design, at the same time as others call for a extra delicate touch.The challenge is coming up with a design that complements the inherent beauty of the stone, a design that will become a unique treasure.
