I was very sad to peruse my new Rio Grande catalog and see that they
are no longer selling the manmade blue and orange sapphires that I
adore (as do many of my clients).
Instead of the affordable ones in a vast range of sizes and shapes,
they now are carrying only the Chatham-branded ones, in only 4
sizes/shapes, and at a cost of something like 10-100x what the others
cost. Both the limited sizes and the vastly higher price are problems
So: where can I now get gorgeous blue and orange manmade faceted
sapphires, without the branding and exalted price and with an array
of sizes, like Rio used to carry? I’m more interested in smaller than
larger ones, but any source would be a help at this point.
Thanks in advance!
