A Ruby is the most valuable gemstone and its value increases based on its colour and quality.

WINTER BLUE GEMSTONES:
In the midst of the winter season, give a loving look at our favourite blue gemstones and jewellery. Each of the blue gemstones promises a cool blue hue to take you through the rest of the winter, one of them being the Blue Sapphire.
Sapphire is the classic blue gemstone and a favourite among many. The brooch below features the “Starry Night Sapphire,” a beautiful example of a truly
mesmerizing phenomenon: a six-rayed star. This 111.96 carat unheated Burmese blue star sapphire is reminiscent of the blue sky in van Gogh’s painting of the same name and evokes a similar dreamy quality.
