What is the carbon footprint of your wedding ring?  How great it was to hear Toby Pomeroy speak at a conference.  I was able to interview him after his talk.

A sapphire can add a unique and one of a kind focal point to any engagement ring!  Armed with knowledge, you can select the best sapphire for you.
