“Every girl is beautiful. It’s just easier to show it in a pink dress!”
Even more true for a pink sapphire! And even more so true for this light pink sapphire. Of course, like many of our pink sapphires, this is also from the Ilakaka region of Madagascar and facetted in our family-owned lapidary in Sri Lanka. With the dimensions of 5.85mm by 4.61mm, this beautiful sapphire has a depth of 2.83mm, making it a suitable stone for a ring. It has a modest carat weight of 0.61 carats. The stone is unheated and natural making it an absolutely stunning creation by mother nature. The stone is eye clean, which allows for clarity features within the stone. It has an oval shape and a modified flower cut pavilion, one of our favourite cuts as it gives our lapidarists to fashion the most beautiful gemstone. So of course, go back into your childhood and enjoy the pink!

Pretty Pink Sapphire
A PRETTY PARAGRAPH
Pink Sapphires have long been the second narrator in the story of sapphires. Working hand-in-hand with its close sibling the blue sapphire, the bubblegum delicacy in the current market is a coveted gemstone. However, before we discuss the end, we must first explore the beginning. So let’s explore: The Pretty Pink Sapphire.
THE TWO GIANTS OF PINK SAPPHIRE
Pink Sapphire Deposits exist all around the world, but the two giant pink sapphire deposits are Sri Lanka(Ceylon) and Madagascar. The former being the oldest producer of sapphires in the world, and the latter although younger is a close competitor for pink sapphires. Additionally, sapphires from each deposit have their own characteristics and iniquities.
The introduction of Madagascan sapphires into the gemstone market was approximately in the month of October in 1998. Additionally, the focus and development of the bare and barren land of the Ilakaka region, to a modern-day sapphire capital brought refreshed eyes to Pink Sapphires. The Ilakaka region is now synonymous with pink sapphires. A characteristic of sapphires from the region especially pink is having microscopic dust inclusions within the stones. This clarity feature of Madagascan origin sapphires is less on better stones from the region. Despite this, stones that do have these features, surprisingly to the naked eye, could be placed on a pedestal. Remember, although the region is a large producer of pink corundum, it also produces sapphires of a variety of hues and saturations. (Read more on Sapphires of Madagascan Origin)
