Paolo Costagli’s Ombre Collection is a colorful line of fine sapphire jewelry featuring stones hand selected by Paolo himself. Paolo is a renowned gemstone expert who has studied and worked intensively in the field before breaking out into the world of jewelry design. The collection is inspired by the Tuscan summers of his youth. According to him, nothing captures the essence of the Mediterranean Sea better than the colors and textures of sapphires. The stones used in this collection were picked by Paolo in varying sequences to create a unique identity in each piece.
Sapphires are arguably the most popular gemstone in the world. They are best known for their deep blue color and royal stature. Plenty of rare sapphires have found its way to royal jewelry including the Duchess of Cambridge’s engagement ring. What most people don’t know is that sapphires exist in other colors as well. Quite a lot, in fact. From greens to oranges, to yellows and pinks, these stones shine with stunning brilliance and color. Their colors are largely dependent on their origins all over Asia and Africa, and on treatment. These stones are also impressive in terms of hardness, scoring 9 on the Mohs scale. This is perhaps the reason why many jewelers enjoy working with sapphires. In metaphysical circles, the sapphire is known as the Stone of Wisdom, said to bring enlightenment to the wearer.
