Announcing a new and responsible source of rubies and pink sapphires from Greenland, unearthed at a pristine and untouched site in Aappaluttoq (Ah-puh-lu-tok) in the southwest of the country. 

Greenlandic rubies and pink sapphires are the oldest gems on earth, and are easily identifiable by their unique ‘fingerprint’ – their inclusions tell a story of having been buried under ice and snow for 3 billion years! Greenland Ruby gems are mined, cut and polished adhering to best practices, human rights and environmental laws, and have their own identity number, which originates at the mine site.  Each gem over 1 carat comes with a Certificate of Origin. A percentage of your purchase goes to the Pink Polar Bear Foundation, an initiative by Greenland Ruby.  The foundation supports International Polar Research in all disciplines; human, animal and environmental, affected by climate change in the Arctic, specifically in Greenland.

Greenlandic rubies and pink sapphires come in a variety of

colors, ranging from deep red and fuscia, to hot and icy pink.
