green sapphires

.
9ct white gold Victorian ring set with Australian green sapphires.
It is important to me to use stones that are sourced locally. Often with Australian sapphires there is inconsistency with colours that are available, with green sapphires there are many shades within the one parcel of stones. I like this very much. I went through a parcel of about 200 stones to select the 16 that are in this ring, and the colours are all slightly different, which is what makes this ring more special and interesting ( in my opinion.)
