The Science Behind Sapphire Ring Prices

Wondering where that figure on the price tag on your Sapphire ring comes from? Our prices at Sapphire Ring Company are based on the cost we able to acquire each stone for at the markets and mines in Sri Lanka. Since these costs are not fixed and fluctuate depending on several factors, our only aim is being able to buy at a price were we can sell at or below wholesale to our customers. The one thing we never do is compromise on the quality. Therefore, when you buy from us, you can rest assured that you are only getting the best!

Two Similar Sapphire Rings May Have Different Prices

Unlike diamonds, where prices are set by the main distributor De Beers, the cost of gemstone at the market or mining level can change dramatically when acquiring directly from the source. This is why, it’s not uncommon to see cases where one sapphire at say 3.50 cts with the same color, cut and clarity is cheaper than a sapphire at say 2.75 cts,

Even though the price for this custom sapphire ring is higher than the cushion cut sapphire ring we sold last year, you will find that it is still approximately 50% less than what you would be expected to pay for the same thing in a regular high street jewel shop or online retailer.

Our Process

We travel to Sri Lanka on a frequent basis throughout the year to buy the majority of the sapphires in person. This is to ensure that prices remain competitive in the wholesale market. Only once a sapphire has been certified by our local gemologist, followed by the official report from the GIA, do our jewelers start work on the custom ring using that sapphire.
