There is a very rare, strikingly blue gem called blue kyanite that can be compared to the finest sapphires in the world. This newcomer is taking the jewelry world by storm, but gem quality stones aren’t easy to get to, as the best specimens come from the Himalayans in Nepal. But going to great heights for our clients is what we do, so we got out the hiking gear and procured the exceptional stones for the Blue Kyanite Annapurna Ring.
I think it’s safe to say it was worth the trek. Named for the beautiful yet dangerous Himalayan mountain range, “Annapurna”, this ring features a perfectly-faceted oval of blue kyanite in a setting of sterling silver. This many carats of perfect blue in a sapphire would set you back over $5,000. Or, you could indulge in a gem rarer and bluer than a sapphire with a price that’s down to earth.
