Ceylon Sapphire – Purple-ish Pink – Square – 2.06 Carats

$1,695.00

Pink isn’t just a colour it’s an Attitude, and this stone has both. Ethically sourced from our own mines in Sri Lanka, this 2.06 carat, square-shaped wonder has the dimensions of 6.76mm by 6.73mm and depth of 4.30mm. The modified step-cut pavilion brings an added depth to the stone. Although the stone is not Loupe Clean, it is Eye Clean meaning that to the naked eye it would seem the perfect stone. Just like a majority of the stones in our collection, this pink sparkle is completely natural and unheated. The beautiful mixture of a light purple into the stone is a prime example of the stone’s ability to show a different tinge of pink under different lighting, making it the perfect stone for wear on a day out or a night-time function.

This pink stone is a must-have if you are outgoing and have an attitude, where personality can be not only reflected from your actions but also your jewellery.

Contrary to popular belief Ceylon Sapphires occur in many different colours, ranging from colourless to black. Also mentioned in the article on Madagascan Sapphires, red sapphires are characteristically known as rubies. Rubies are crystal forms of aluminium oxide, containing traces of chromium and iron impurities that absorb yellow-green light, thus deeper ruby red colour with increased content. Purple sapphires contain traces of hard, silver-grey malleable transitional metals that come in different shades. In addition, Colourless sapphires, or commonly known as white sapphires in the gemstone markets, are stones of corundum that contains 0.01% of titanium.
