Livi – Design – Madagascan Sapphires

$ 1,850.00

The Livi Design inspiration came from dragonflies in Autumn’s breeze, buzzing around as dusk’s sun hits their wings and body. Padparadscha Sapphires were the perfect match for the job. The Livi Design is a six-piece Madagascan sapphire design with a ring or pendant in mind. It contains two mismatched pairs of pear and marquee shaped sapphires, accompanied by trilliant and round padparadscha sapphires. All of these sapphires have been faceted in our lapidary in Sri Lanka, by our expert lapidarists. They are natural and unheated, making them a rarity and perfect for a piece of jewellery made for you! The Livi Design is a definite sparkler and would be the perfect combination for a bright and carefree personality, shimmering and dancing in the dusky light.

Let Livi speak to you, and envelop you with a life with no burdens! Padparadscha Sapphires are the pinnacle of sapphires so reach for the mountain of class!

MADAGASCAN SAPPHIRE

The first find, although small, was in the early 1990s in the north of the island. Conjunctively, the discovery in the small southern village of Ilakaka increased the country’s relevance in the gemstone industry. Once a small, poverty-stricken hamlet with a population of just 40 residents, the town suddenly expanded exponentially. What was once a sleepy truck stop of small shacks, suddenly became the mecca of sapphire miners. Over a two year period, hordes of people almost 60,000 strong descended on Ilakaka wishing to make a fortune. They came from impoverished towns all over the island and from Sri Lanka, Thailand and many other countries

Before 1998 the largest producers of sapphires were Sri Lanka and Thailand. However, between 1998 and 2007 Madagascar became the largest producer of sapphires in the world.
