Natural Kashmir sapphires, or "blue velvet" sapphires were mined in the remote region of
the Indian Himalayans. Their velvety appearance, and due to the mines from which they were obtained being exhausted, has made
finding and buying a true natural Kashmir blue an extremely rare opportunity.
After a long period of evaluating lab grown sapphires from labs all over the world, we
are pleased to offer lab-grown Kashmir color sapphires, grown in Switzerland.
Our cultured (lab-grown) Kashmir blue sapphires are unique in several respects:
These are *real* sapphire, not imitation...they are simply grown in the lab instead of mined.
Grown in Switzerland, they feature a relatively high lustre when compared to other lab grown sapphires.
Unlike most mined sapphires, our lab grown Kashmir sapphires are not heat treated to enhance their color - their beautiful
blue comes from being grown with that color natively.
The result is that our Cultured Kashmir Blue Sapphires let you enjoy the beauty and splendor of real sapphire
in sizes, clarity and color saturation that would otherwise be unaffordable or simply unobtainable.
We are pricing our Cultured Kashmir Blue sapphires at $75/ct.
Our round sapphires are
available in either traditional 'sapphire cut' or the more
modern 'diamond cut'. For an explanation of the
difference cutting styles, you can refer to our answerbase
