  • “Canary Yellow” is not an official color grading term but it is widely used in the trade to describe the color of a stone. Only intense, pure yellow stones can be “Canary Yellow”.

    Love Them, Can’t Afford Them!

    Yes, we know. They are stunning, but Kate Winslet’s $3.5 million budget may be slightly over most people’s, but this doesn’t mean you can’t be bedecked in something just as beautiful – Canary Yellow Sapphires! Natural, fine, untreated Yellow Sapphire is just as captivating and way more affordable. Jenny McCarthy, for example, loves her Canary Yellow Sapphire engagement ring.
