Ecomine is one of the few positive examples in the gemstone sector in terms of sustainability and fairness and could be a great role model for the countless small-scale miners in Sri Lanka to convert their operations as well.

Our competition entry was inspired by the origin of the sapphire – Sri Lanka: The colorful diversity of the culture, the colorful way of life with the colorful clothes, the delicious food& colorful spices, the exotic plants.
The center stone, the faceted cut hexagon in blue, is set flat in memory of a magnificent signet ring with deep symbolism. It sits in an open flower, the petals each bearing a sapphire as a rough stone in a different color in a small coat of arms. Sapphires not only come in blue, but also in white, yellow, green, pink and red!
A simple rose gold ring band extends to the inside of the hand and bears a hand-engraved, rounded lion relief. So you can feel the power of the lion alive! The lion with the sword is the heraldic animal of Sri Lanka and embodies HONESTY & STRENGTH and unites all ethnic groups in the country. And: the ring also contains a surprise. Which we then reveal for the wearer …. If we win and are allowed to realize this beautiful ring! Therefore, once again at the end: We are counting on you, because the entry with the most likes wins the competition!!! Please give our Instagram post a “heart squeeze” !

Please share the post diligently!
