When the Earth was just a bit younger, a demonic god named Vela roamed its surface. When his body was ripped apart in a great battle, his eyes shattered. These shards fell on Sri Lanka, and became the sapphires so associated with the region. Our ethically-sourced sapphires come from a small-scale mine in Sri Lanka that pays a living wage. When they arrive at Reflective Jewelry, our artisan jewelers incorporate them works of art like the Medina Ring shown.
