This 1.12 Carat 7.1 x 5.1 mm Blue Oval Sapphire has been hand selected by our GIA-certified gemologists for its exceptional characteristics and rarity.
Malawi sapphires exhibit unique and beautiful blue and pink colors. Malawi's deposits of sapphires promote small scale mining that is limited to just part of the year to protect the area. Brilliant Earth exclusively sources from the Chimwadzulu Hill Mine in the red hills of Southern Malawi. These sapphires are some of the first mined in accordance with fair trade principles, by paying miners above-average wages and offering health benefits to all workers.
Seventy people work at the Chimwadzulu Hill Mine, making it the largest operation of its kind in Malawi and an important contributor to the local economy. In addition to adhering to our rigorous standards for environmental and labor protections, our mining partner supports the education of children in the region. Brilliant Earth’s sapphires sourced from Malawi are an ethical and beautiful choice.
