PASSION RUBYTM

Ruby has the distinction of being the most valued gemstone throughout most of recorded history. Ancient Sanskrit referred to the ruby as the "king of precious stones", the bible found only wise and virtuous women more precious than rubies and the Persian sage al-Biruni wrote about rubies the first place in color, beauty and rank among all gems. The name Ruby comes from the Latin word ruber for its hue. The strength of red in the ruby depends on how much chromium is present—the more chromium, the stronger the red color. Chromium can also cause fluorescence, which adds to the intensity of the red color. The brilliant crimson color of this gem is associated with passion and love, making the ruby an ideal choice for engagement rings.

There are many famous rubies throughout history, two of which can be seen at the Smithsonian Institution, National Museum of Natural History including the 138.72-carat Rosser Reeves Star Ruby from Sri Lanka and the 23.10-carat Carmen Lucia Ruby which is considered one of the world's finest large Burmese rubies.

Le Vian® Passion RubyTM comes from Mozambique.

"Passion RubyTM, the July birthstone, embodies our passionate red color and represents the top of production of responsibly sourced ruby."

BLUEBERRY SAPPHIRETM

Throughout history, sapphires have always been associated with the color blue, perhaps most likely due to their name, which comes from the Greek word sappheiros (blue stone). Traditionally, sapphire symbolizes truth, sincerity, and faithfulness. In history, clergy members wore the gem to symbolize Heaven. In ancient Greece and Rome, the royals believed sapphires protected them from envy and harm. Sapphires have also been closely associated with romance and the royals, most recently in modern times. In 1981, Prince Charles gave Lady Diana Spencer a blue sapphire engagement ring. The same ring was later given to Kate Middleton by Prince William

But all sapphires are not blue and, in fact, come in a rainbow of colors including varying shades of blue as well as “fancy sapphires” in pink, yellow, orange, lavender, purple. Blues can be pure blue but may have a range from greenish blue to violet blue. The blue in a sapphire is the result of trace elements of iron and titanium; the more iron in the sapphire, the darker the blue.

Le Vian® offers both classic and contemporary looks with its Blueberry Sapphires® which were chosen from mines in Mozambique.

"Le Vian® utilizes exacting standards for its genuine sapphires, choosing only those with a rich royal blue, blueberry flavor for designs which feature the September birthstone"

FOREST GREEN TSAVORITETM

Tsavorite is a green garnet and, like other garnets, forms within metamorphic rocks; its rareness comes from its specific need for more unusual rock chemistries and special conditions to be in place in order for it to form.
The brilliant, high-grade green garnet is named in honor of the area in which it has only been found, the Tzavo National Park and the Tzavo River. The color scale of this gem is fresh and invigorating, ranging from a spring-like pale green to an intensely bluish-green to a deep forest green, which is the flavor of Le Viang Forest Green TsavoriteTM.

"We chose Honey GoldTM as a backdrop which intensifies the lively green flavor of Forest Green TsavoriteTM, one of the brightest green gems in the 50 Shades of GreenTM trend"
