Our passion for sapphires
Our love for all things sapphire began decades ago when founder and owner of Starlanka, Kalam, began working with his father and uncle in the sapphire trade in Sri Lanka. He has since relocated to Los Angeles, CA and has passed on his passion for sapphires in all colors of the rainbow to his children, who now run the online boutique and design each collection by hand picking each gem and molding it into something special for their clients.
We believe that one-of-a-kind jewelry begins with the perfect sapphire. This is why we recommend that you begin the design process by first selecting the perfect sapphire, one that speaks to you. From there we are with you every step of the way from designing your piece to sketching it out and creating a 3D wax model of what it will eventually look like. Helping you create your special piece is our favorite part of our job!
Ready to Wear
All jewelry in our online boutique is ready to wear in standard sizes. We can resize each item based on your preferences.

I wanted to take a moment to again express my complete joy with the beautiful pink sapphire ring and setting designed for me. I'm in love! Honestly, I've been shopping for just the right pale pink color and size for quite some time. Having just celebrated 30 years with my husband - the new ring I wanted was a pink sapphire to commemorate our September wedding date. I found you online and love your special designs and although I wanted something very simple, I appreciate the time you took to help me find both the right sapphire but also in getting the pave design I really wanted for the setting. From start to finish the process was seamless! Your updates on the progress and expected completion kept me well informed and it was so much quicker than I had ever expected. I hope to get a chance to meet you soon and thank you in person!

I was indeed a bit worried about firstly buying a padparadscha sapphire online but secondly and more importantly, choosing the right color is so hard as all screens showed the stone in different colors...The videos you sent me really helped us narrowing down the choice and so did the photos...
We are both so happy with our choice - I cannot get enough of it! The padparadscha sapphire itself looks stunning! The color range is huge! It contains more colors than I ever thought was possible! From a light peachy-pink in day light it goes to an breathtaking darker reddish tone in yellow indoor light. But then yet again when it's overcast, the colors go towards dark peach (yellow), like on the first image I sent your dad. We are amazed every time anew and rose gold was the perfect choice to enhance its colors.

Hello, Just wanted to let you know that I received the stone, and couldn't be more pleased. Exactly the color I am looking for. It is going to make a beautiful anniversary ring. My jeweler said that they wouldn't be able to find a stone of this quality for anywhere near the price I gave. Thanks for your help.

These guys have a huge selection of sapphires. If you don't know anything about sapphires, it's better if you do a little research before buying one. They sell Ceylon Sapphires which are among the most sought after in the world. I had a great time picking out the perfect gem for our engagement ring. Their prices are way better than the ones I've seen on-line. The owner is from Sri Lanka and he gets it directly from there.
