Sapphires From Serendip May 15 2016
At Elizabeth Jewellers, we take great pride in sourcing all our natural sapphires from the beautiful island nation of Sri Lanka. Serendip, as it was known earlier in an ancient era, described it magnificently as an island of fortuitous coincidence. The origination of the word, Serendip, dates back to a Persian folk tale which follows the adventures of three princes who discover pleasant surprises and mystical treasures during their travels across the world.
Sri Lanka has enjoyed a reputation for possessing the world’s finest precious gemstones including some of the most exquisite sapphires known to man. These fine Ceylon sapphires feature brilliant colors, precise cuts and immaculate clarity that are destined to be adorned across the globe. So, if you, like the ancient Persian princes, do serendipitously discover us during your journey through the inter-webs, feel free to browse through our exclusive sapphire collections at www.elizabethjewellers.com.
