The dream of creating collections that astounded customers, garnered international acclamation and highlighted Sri Lanka as the source of the most exquisite gemstones and the finest craftsmanship, was one that began over 100 years ago with Prince Salie. Exhibiting at World Fairs in Australia and New Zealand and the United States, Prince Salie brought the mysteries of the Orient and its Jewels to the pleasure and fantasy of the West. With a particular passion for Ceylon Sapphires and Moonstones, his name was so synonymous with the latter that till the early 1970’s the Dictionary of Gems and Gemology written by GIA founder Robert M. Shippley referred to the Moonstone as Salie’s Stone.
His legacy lives on today with his great-grandchildren Faiq and Nabeel Salie who employ some of the most talented designers, gemologists and artisans in the region. Their expertise in selecting, cutting, color graphing and crafting jewellery through their group of companies is second to none. We are amongst a few company’s in Sri Lanka to have our own gem lapidary, jewelry studio and flagship store all under one roof in a state-of-the-art-facility in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
