Loose sapphire gemstones. This listing is for a randomly selected group of 5 sapphires from the actual group of sapphires shown in the photos. I have several 5 packs available. If you select a quantity of 1 you will receive 5 sapphires, quality 2 will receive 10 sapphires, quantity 3 will receive 15 sapphires and so on. If you wish to purchase the entire lot please contact me for a special price and I will create a new Etsy listing.
These are genuine earth mined sapphires that have only been heat treated as per industry standard. I generally buy the gemstones in very large parcels for the purpose of manufacturing jewelry. By doing this I am able to negotiate for the best prices however it also means that from time to time I end up with some stones in the parcel that just don't work for the solitaire style jewelry that I make. That is the case with these little sapphires. They are too small for me but would work great as accent stones, in cluster jewelry or as a way to incorporate real sapphires into your craft projects.
The sapphires average between 4x3mm and 5x4mm. Some are a little bigger and some a little smaller. They average around 0.30 carats each and are mostly very dark blue with an opaque clarity. They are oval cut. At only a $3 each you can't go wrong on these small but real sapphires.

Any such charges are the sole responsibility of the importer. I am experienced in shipping internationally and will ensure that all of the required paper work is in place to make the shipment go smoothly. Please do not ask me to mark the item(s) as a gift or declare a lower value than the actual amount paid for the item(s) as it is illegal to do so.
Layaway: I am happy to arrange a layaway program for any of the items in my shop. A minimum deposit of 25% or $50 (whichever is less) is required to hold the item. The remaining balance can be divided over a period of time that is convenient for the buyer.
