Comprised of elements from the Arnstein Family Crest and symbols of our company’s values and pursuits; the seal of The Natural Sapphire Company coat visible throughout our website and correspondence has been a reminder to us over the years of why we are in the wonderful business of natural sapphires. We see the seal each day we arrive at work, and know by our motto Expletus Fides Calculu – loosely translated to “The Finished Stone of Good Faith” – that our reason for being here is more than a job and a means to an end, but a calling of passion for the beautiful natural sapphires we search the world for to bring their beauty to you. The Natural Sapphire Company specializes in the rare natural untreated sapphire; fresh from the earth that formed it over millions of years, cut and polished, and set for you in a one of a kind sapphire engagement ring. It sounds so simple, but it took earth and our company quite a lot of work to make that happen. We are proud of the work we and earth have done! Since 1939, it has not only been the sapphires we love, but the jewelry we put them in, and the customers who love and appreciate them. Your appreciation for the gems we hold dear is what has kept us going, so that we can continue to bring you the finest, as well as the most rare and unique sapphires and rubies, as well as educate the world about our favorite gemstones. For your appreciation of sapphires, we thank you.
In between the two fierce Arnstein Family Lions, there is something you may not have seen before; it is the crystal habit of corundum, the common characteristic shape of the natural rough crystal. In the lower right quadrant is the Miner’s Hammer, a symbol for our unity with the miners of the world, our charity efforts for mining villages, and our dedication to bringing sapphires and rubies from the source to your hand. Sapphires and rubies are predominately mined by hand from alluvial sources using simple tools such as pickaxes, shovels, and bags & barrels to move the earth. It is hard, painstaking work, and we have tremendous respect for the men who do it. At the bottom of the shield, are The Mountains, a symbol to us of the continued quest for sapphires. And last but not least, the microscope. We are not only sellers of sapphires, we are gemologists. We know sapphires like no one else. Our entire sales team is made up of Graduate Gemologists, trained by the prestigious Gemological Institute of America. When you speak to someone at The Natural Sapphire Company about a rare untreated sapphire, you’re speaking to an expert in the field. And not only that, but this is a company that has been dealing in sapphires for over 80 years. Our history and our unified goals give us great confidence in our future, and we hope our customers will feel that same confidence.
We feel so strongly about how we do business, and how our difference separates us from the rest, that we made our company seal emulate those sentiments. Every day when we leave the office, close the door, and take one last look at The Seal of The Natural Sapphire Company, we remember what we are aspiring to be, and what gorgeous sapphires our customers will one day see.
