A collection of jewels made up exclusively of rubies and sapphires extracted in Greenland: it’s proposed by Danish jeweler Hartmann ♦ ︎
You remained at the rubies of Burma, the most wanted. Alternatively, those from Sri Lanka or Tanzania. You have to update yourself: here are the rubies of Greenland which, for the first time, are used to compose a single collection. The idea is by Ulrik Hartmann, a Danish jeweler who launches a collection made up of rubies and sapphires extracted from the frozen depths of the Arctic country.
The collection consists of over 50 pieces, made with around 300 carats of greenish pink rubies and sapphires.
If you are interested, know that the price of jewels is between 1500 and 45000 dollars. The decision of Hartmann was made after visiting the country’s mines, which highlight sustainable processes for the extraction of the gems: each Greenland Ruby stone is endowed with a certificate of origin authorized and issued by the Government of Greenland, which guarantees a high standard for human rights and environmental responsibility, the company said.
At the moment there is only one company that extracts pink rubies and sapphires in Greenland in a remote site of Aappaluttoq, 155 miles south of Nuuk, the capital of the country. And it does not have to be a walk. Giulia Netrese
