True Blue Sapphires
You Want to See the Blue
We believe in true blue sapphires, sapphires that look blue even in the shadows. Many sapphires are just too dark. Often to see the blue you’d need to stand under intense direct lighting. In its finest qualities, a blue sapphire should be blue in normal life lighting conditions, not just under the bright showcase lights of a jewelry store.
Cross sapphire jewelry starts with the selection of the individual gem. We choose gems one at a time, and evaluate them under different lighting conditions to find sapphires that will perform well in a variety of environments. This results in gems which are bright, blue, and brilliant—everything you want in a sapphire, even viewed at an arm’s distance. The jewelry is then specially crafted to fit the gem. This process leads to the best and bluest sapphire jewelry.
The sapphire in this ring is our Camelot Blue color, a bright and beautiful medium toned blue. If you think of a tone scale of 0 being white and 100 being black, the Camelot Blue color falls around 55-60 in tone.
East to West
Ancient Roman Jewelry Wisdom
While touring the antiquities section at the Met a number of years ago we were struck by the number of rings designed east to west – that is, the gem or design going across the finger. Up to that point most rings we made and nearly all other jewelers made, the gem was featured north to south along the length of the finger. What did the ancients know that we had forgotten?
Upon returning to the store we played with the “east to west” concept and began setting more ovals, emeralds, and cushion-cut gems this way. Our customers responded. East-west set gems took off. They have a natural eye pleasing effect. It’s a more comfortable casual look that fits perfectly with today’s lifestyles.
The Elizabeth Islands
Everyone knows and loves Cape Cod. Millions visit the Cape every year. Far fewer know the Elizabeth Islands, a magical chain of islands swept to the west from the lower Cape.
