“Who needs Valentine’s Day when pink is your everyday colour.”

And make this stunning purplish pink sapphire the reason why pink is your everyday colour. This sparkling sensation originates from the mines of Madagascar and is natural and unheated. Its stunning oval shape was given to it by our master lapidarist in our family-owned mines in Sri Lanka. One of our favourite pavilion cuts is the flower cuts, which allows the maximum amount of light to enter and dance within the stone, accentuating both the colour and cut. This sapphire supports the dimensions of 5.89mm by 5.50mm and a pavilion depth of 3.75mm, making it the ideal Centerstone of an everyday ring. The clarity of this gemstone is eye clean and its lustre just makes the stone pop-out when compared to others. So why don’t you take a leap and have this pink be your everyday colour to wear and impress?

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.

Madagascar

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)
