Sapphires are very hard stones, but we love how this one is protected by a bezel and a severe diamond surround.
Diamond and gold mining has caused devastation in areas such as Africa, wreaking havoc on delicate ecosystems and communities. Choosing to go vintage, you are eliminating the need for more mining and lessening the demand for new diamonds.
