Ceylon Sapphire – Blue – Oval – 1.62 Carats

$ 4,181.82

If you take the ocean and compact it into one single gemstone, you get this amazingly deep blue 1.62-carat gemstone with the dimensions of 6.90mm by 5.60mm, as well as a pavilion depth of 4.77mm. Although the stone is natural, to slightly enhance the colour of the stone, it has been heat-treated in a gentle flame at low temperatures using traditional heating methods. These methods ensure that the stone has a loupe clean clarity. The master lapidarists have done an excellent job to create an oval shape and have provided the stone with step cuts on the pavilion to increase the dispersion of light in the stone. For centuries, these blues from Sri Lanka(formerly known as Ceylon) continue to amaze and awe the gemstone buyer, collector and the general populace.

This stone encapsulates the ocean into a single gem and is well deserved as the feature stone in your jewellery.

Sapphires found in Ceylon were originally famous because of the vibrant medium blue hues. However, there is more to the opinion of the populace and the demand of the people.

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.
