Sapphires are part of the corundum family of minerals. In other words, sapphires are a very hard stone. Secondly, sapphires are a very bright stone. When people think of sapphires typically you envision a deep navy blue. However, sapphires come in a variety of colors. This includes white, pink, purple and even orange. Sapphires can be found in India, Sri Lanka, parts of Africa and even Montana. Sapphire is the birthstone for the month of September.

Rubies come in all different sizes and qualities. About the only consistent feature with Ruby is the deep, enchanting red that has made it so famous. Most of the time Ruby is faceted into a traditional gemstone. However, there are also star rubies, cat’s eye rubies, and even ruby slices. Ruby is part of the corundum family of gemstones. These are very hard minerals that work great for rings. The corundum family, interestingly enough, also includes sapphires.

Garnets come in numerous colors, but most people tend to think of Garnet as a deep red. Tsavorite garnets are incredibly bright. To give you an idea they have a higher score on the refractive index than emeralds. These garnets are sourced from Tsavo national park. Tsavo national park is located in south eastern Kenya.

14kt gold is a great metal for an active lifestyle. It is a harder alloy than 18kt gold. This results in less scratches and, therefore, less polishing. In comparison to 18kt, which is 75% gold, the 14kt has 58.5% gold. To that end, it is a lighter weight alloy than platinum or 18kt. 14kt gold looks great when it is brushed or polished.
