Item Description

Sapphire is one of those gems that comes in virtually every color of the rainbow, and they have been beloved for thousands of years by collectors. This makes them some of the most highly sought after gems on the planet, which is only amplified due to their beauty and superior durability. One of the greatest sources of gem quality Sapphire has been Sri Lanka dating back centuries. The superb blue Sapphires from Sri Lanka are legendary, and remain as one of the great standards in the gem world. This particular stone has a gorgeous blue hue with a traditional "step oval" cut and nearly eye clean clarity. For my taste, this is an excellent shade of blue for a Sapphire as it's not too dark (which can sometimes looks black) and it's not a pastel hue. It's that ideal shade that still looks saturated, but it's bright enough that it really shines. Retail price on this stone is $1,974.50.
