1.21ct Padparadscha Sapphire


This dreamboat is another Umba sapphire sourced by our friends at Anza Gems. It was mined in Tanzania by Juma. Our mother and owner of Precious Ghost, Sarah, cut this custom designed stone from a pretty interestingly shaped pieces of rough. We'd call it a shield, pear, trillion type shape. This stone exhibits bright flashes of pink and orange. We are unsure if this stone has been heat treated or not.

ANZA gems creates a transparent, traceable journey from the mines of East Africa to you. The journey of an ANZA gem is not only a rich story, but also creates a circle of development beginning with fair trade prices paid in East Africa, continued by supporting independent artisans who facet our gems and create our custom jewelry, and ultimately reinvesting 10% of sales to education and other initiatives supporting gem communities. This includes education at the primary level, as well as at the jewelry trade level with vocational schools teaching Africans marketable skills of gem cutting, grading and sorting.  Our goal is to have East Africans facet their own gems, design their own jewelry, and fully participate in the global gemstone trade.

I’m interested in a custom engagement ring. Where do I start?

We specialize in customizing our jewelry so each piece is unique. Sarah sources and cuts a collection of beautiful stones, which can be combined with our ring settings to create a one of a kind piece. Start by browsing our loose stone library. Once you find something you like, you can purchase the stone and setting and we will reach out to begin the design process. We’ll walk you through it!

What are the best stones for engagement rings?

All stones are measured on a scale of hardness called the Mohs scale. Diamonds are a 10 - the hardest substance on earth, and a natural choice for engagement rings. Sapphires have a hardness of 9, and can easily stand up to a lifetime of wear. Sapphires also come in a rainbow of gorgeous colors and we source many unique cuts, so they are a favorite stone in our collection. 

Other stones like ruby and spinel can make great engagement stones too. Softer stones like emerald, aquamarine and opal are not recommended as they can chip or lose polish over a lifetime of wear.

Do I get to preview my ring before it’s made?

Yes! Our goldsmiths will reach out to confirm that the stone and setting you choose will work together, and assemble a 3D rendering of your ring for approval. You can see the ring from all angles in the metal color of your choosing. This is a great way to see how ratios and colors work together.

I want a totally custom design. Can you help?
