With great world recognition, Star Sapphire are the celebrity in this cast of gems. A great feature of this phenomenal gem is that it appeals both to men and women in any piece of jewelry, such as earrings, cuff links, tie tacks, rings, bracelets or broaches. With its very large range of colors and price points, anyone can reach for a star and own it. When presenting stars to your customers, proper use of lighting is of the utmost importance. Make sure you use a strong single source of light to best demonstrate this feature. The sun is the best source of light in this case, and if not possible a strong flashlight will do. Diffused lighting and multiple sources of light will not produce the star present in the gem. Teach and practice showing star sapphires with your staff, since that is ultimately the feature you are selling in these beauties.
