Sapphire Cutters (Pvt.) Ltd., won the Medium Gold Award of the Gem & Jewellery category at the recently concluded Business Word International Awards held at Taj Samudra Hotel in Colombo.

Sapphire Cutters (Pvt.) Ltd., is rooted in history, dating back to 1890, when two young men from the Port City of Galle, Ceylon, decided to travel to Australia to sell the world famous Ceylon Sapphire.

By 1973, gem mining in Sri Lanka increased and many valuable gems were found. The buyers wanted to purchase directly from the mines. With years of family experience in the trade, Naji Sammoon established Sapphire Gem Cutters, Colombo.

The company purchased rough Sapphires and shaped them to bring out the best in each stone. By 1975, many overseas buyers were purchasing through the Sri Lankan office. Sapphire Gem Cutters was later incorporated as Sapphire Cutters (Pvt.) Ltd.

Today, Sapphire Cutters, a family owned business, has become a dependable supplier of well cut good quality Gemstones, certified as NATURAL or ONLY HEATED by well reputed GIA and FGA qualified Gemologists Naji Sammoon, who is Chairman of Sapphire Cutters and his son Armil Sammoon, with worldwide experience, had taken over the reins as Managing Director.
