A Sea of Beauty!

Lydia Courteille, sea horse brooch with opals, sapphires, amethysts and diamonds, a masterpiece with such rich and vibrant color/colour!
 

Fun fact: Purple sapphires are an often misunderstood and underappreciated.

They are actually quite extraordinary and far rarer than the more traditionally recognised blue sapphires. Unlike most blue and pink sapphires, which need to be heat treated in order to obtain their best color, purple sapphires very rarely require any heat treatment and are able to naturally change color in different lighting. 

 

On the reef!

18K gold fish ring with diamonds and sapphires, fish-a-lic-ious, so pretty! 

Not so fun, fact: Coral reefs are fragile ecosystems, partly because they are very sensitive to water temperature. They are under threat from climate change, oceanic acidification, blast fishing, cyanide fishing for aquarium fish, sunscreen use, overuse of reef resources, and harmful land-use practices, including urban and agricultural runoff and water pollution, which can harm reefs by encouraging excess algal growth.

We just had to say it!
