Late last March, I went to meet a Delhi gem dealer inside his gated compound, where he laid out an array of nearly transparent coloured gems. Impressive as they were, the pricey stones he was directing me toward were cold, and passionless.

My eye was drawn to the deeper, more colourful, more vibrant pink sapphires. Id been inspired by the Holi festival, the annual Indian celebration of spring which symbolizes the triumph of good over evil. Everywhere there were baskets of vivid coloured powders for sale in the streets.

During Holi, people young and old cover themselves in this powder and celebrate all night. Id finally found gems to capture that energy. Our Spring Sapphire Necklace showcases 100-carats of colourful, natural pink Indian sapphire.
