Collectors Guide: Blue Sapphires
Presenting a digital collector's guide showcasing sapphires. While by no means comprehensive, this overview will touch on the gemological properties of sapphires, quality factors, common treatments and significant origins.
Each year, Bell and Bird accepts a limited number of truly bespoke jewels. We design our clients commissioned jewels to the best proportion, with suitable details and in the right materials for their desired end. We begin with initial consultations and watercolor renderings. Highly skilled jewelers use the most traditional methods to execute our designs. Fully commissioned pieces take up to 12 weeks to complete.
Please contact us if you have a project you would like to discuss.

After nine years in our original location we moved into our ‘blue house’. The building is a 1924 bungalow that has been completely restored and converted into our showroom and workshop. The front of the house is decorated with antiques and art acquired on our travels. Much of the decorative art is available for purchase, as we love to continually redecorate with our evolving collection of unique finds.
