Recently at Sotheby's Geneva auction house, a ruby weighing 25.59 carats sold for £19.5 million. The market for coloured diamonds and precious gemstones is very strong this year, with a pink diamond also selling for £10.5 million. Women are increasingly seeking coloured gems in preference to standard white diamonds.

On my Design your Own Ring page, you can find a stunning range of sapphires in a wide colour range, from pale pink to dark blue, golden and pale lemon yellow and for someone who likes something totally different a 6.8mm colour change sapphire (green pink blue)

Beautiful aquamarines and tourmalines in many colours can also be found, so something to suit all tastes and budgets.
