Diamond Ceylon sapphire ring
Although the country gained independence in 1948 it was known as Ceylon until it was officially named 'Sri Lanka' in 1972. Sapphires from Sri Lanka are still fondly referred to as Ceylon Sapphires and are widely used in sapphire engagement rings and other fine jewellery for their alluring colours and durability.
