In 1981, Ammolite was officially designated a precious gemstone by CIBJO. Ammolite is the last of the gemstones accepted in the past 300 years and amongst the rarest, placing it alongside its peers Opal, Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald.
Love this ring, it's so beautiful. An outstanding piece of jewelry
Stunning piece! I really wanted AA grade but only A was available so I went for it! I didn’t want to be sorry if they sold out. This collection is stunning in person. I also bought the Origins earrings. Amazing!
This ammolite ring is simply spectacular! The rainbow colors are vivid and vibrant. The ring is elegant and funky. It is a substantial statement piece that makes me feel fabulous. The price is a steal. If you are debating...stop and buy it!
What can I say - just as I had hoped it would look. Simple and stunning.
Leading the way – Sharing our love of Ammolite
Founded from a passion for paleontology and an entrepreneurial spirit – in 1979 Rene Vandervelde purchased a young business from the Kormos family and named it KORITE. Rene’s vision was to introduce the world to the beautiful and captivating Ammolite. Discovered in 1906 by the Geological Survey of Canada, Rene had heard of Ammolite and was fascinated by its history, rarity and cultural significance. Indigenous Canadians refer to Ammolite as the “Buffalo Stone”, others refer to Ammolite as the “Energy Stone” or “Spirit Stone”. Ammolite comes from the fossilization of Ammonite Cephalopods, which are found around the world yet, only in the Bearpaw Formation of Southern Alberta did they mineralize and become the rare and colourful gemstone. To this day, KORITE is the leading Ammolite producer and top canadian jewellery brand, delighting customers internationally.
