An ammolite pendant that will draw a lot of attention for its brilliant display of colour and flashing red sapphire.
Not likely any one in your circle will have anything like this or even be able to identify the gem--Ammolite is that rare---many have yet to see it!
I have the good fortune to live where top grade ammolite is mined and am able to select the very best stones right off the cutters tables before they fill orders to the general public.This is why the quality of gems offered in this shop is consistently among the best available anywhere.
In this shop you always get the exact item you ordered—no substitutions as done on TV sales shops etc.
Most silver set Ammolite you see in shops,TV shopping channels and in cruise ships and their Caribbean, Mexican and Alaskan ports of call, where a lot of Ammolite is sold at sky high prices contain lower grade Ammolites as they reserve their best grades for gold.
I prefer to set top grade gems in both silver and gold alike so that my clients are assured that they are getting the very best gems no matter what metal they choose,and offer them at very reasonable prices--often half of bricks and mortar stores, cruise liner retail or TV sellers.
I find that there is a much greater appreciation for silver now that gold has gone stratospheric however I also stock pieces for those who love gold.
A note about my listing images.
All my images are taken under professional OTT daylight corrected bulbs in order to accurately show un retouched colours.Viewing these ammolites under different light sources will result in different colours--all still beautiful--but different.
All items are shipped via Canada Post Expedited tracked and insured in crushproof boxes and in bubble wrap shipping envelopes.A little more expensive but quality items deserve quality shipping.The standard $20 shipping is for Canada and the US--more expensive for other countries--ask for your rate before buying.
We also ship airmail to Australia and Europe for $10 using Canada Post Small Package Air Mail Service—very reliable but no insurance or tracking so at your risk.
GRADING:—Just so you know.
The ammolite industry has yet to fix on a uniform grading system however the following is accepted until it is.
Grade AA….Three or more colours.Bright.
Grade A+….Two colours—Bright.
Grade A …..One colour— Bright.
Grade A- …. Dull.Very dark
The top three grades is all we use… it makes lovely high quality jewelry,the last grade does not.We don’t use it.
Blue is a much rarer colour in ammolite than green or orange.I try and include blue in my pieces.Another sign of quality.
A very large amount of ammolite of the low A- grade is being bought up by Asian interests,set in cheap silver plated settings and offered and sold online as fine ammolite jewelry.Caveat Emptor!
The popularity of ammolite has grown over the last few years, since renowned Feng Shui master Edward Kui Ming Li began extolling its virtues to his followers.He calls it the “Millennium Stone” and the most important and powerful of stones. Said to promote the flow of “chi” throughout the body, enhance well-being, and reduce toxins in those that own it or wear it.
Ammolite can exhibit up to seven colours—each bring a certain benefit, such as wealth, wisdom, health, growth, or energy. Feng shui practitioners call it the “seven-colour” prosperity stone.”
Buy it for its beauty----- but you just may enjoy additional benefits too
