Working with us
At Nolan and Vada, all rings are custom designed and set with a handpicked sapphire of your choice. You can view our custom process here.
Absolutely, most of Nolan and Vada’s customers already have a set budget in mind and our custom process enables you to handcraft a ring within set budget.
Once the design is approved and center stone is selected, it takes us approx. 4~5 weeks to manufacture the ring.
Absolutely! Many times, couples request us to design a ring on the basis of personality or passion of their loved ones and we can help in bringing the vision to life.
For example, we have incorporated ocean, nature, symbols & colours in a design in order to create a one-of-a-kind engagement ring!
Sapphires can vary in prices hugely. For example, a slight change in color of blue sapphire can result in an increase or drop in price.
Prices stated in Nolan and Vada’s collection are approximates and not final prices. To get an accurate quotation please mail one of our consultants on email@example.com
While we specialize in creating stunning one-of-a-kind engagement rings with unique sapphires, we would love to handcraft a unique diamond engagement ring too.

All the sapphires we offer are 100% natural (No synthetic or lab-created), well saturated in colour, excellent cut and 100% eye clean without any inclusions from the naked eyes.
In simple terms, they all are of AAA quality and handpicked on basis of their gorgeous colour, brilliance & lustre.
We only handpick and sell sapphires we would want to purchase for ourselves. When purchasing a sapphire from us, you can be assured that our sapphires are either untreated or treated only by trade-accepted practice of heating.
We always encourage everyone to ask for enhancements while purchasing a sapphire. Not disclosing enhancements is not only an unethical practice but also against the rules of Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
Nolan and Vada do not sell sapphires treated in non-standard ways like:
- Glass Filling
- Bulk Diffusing
Unlike diamonds, tracing a sapphire's origin is not always possible. However, we work with reputable suppliers who share the same values and standards as set by the World Jewellery Confederation (CIBJO) and do our best to ensure that every sapphire we sell is mined ethically.
In regards to diamonds, we have a zero-tolerance policy towards conflict diamonds. Our diamonds are proudly sourced from global manufacturers that comply with the United Nations Kimberley Process in order to ensure all of our diamonds are ethically sourced.
Depending on the location of suppliers and mines, we source sapphires globally. For example, majority of Nolan and Vada’s sapphires are sourced from the mines in Sri Lanka, Madagascar & Australia.
