$ 1,525.00

A greyish-green Madagascan Sapphire? We are as surprised as you are, the mixture of grey and green in this beauty, and on top of that, the pastel saturation of the whole wonder just makes our knees weak. This stunner is 0.90 carats and has dimensions of 5.01mm x 6.08mm, making it the perfect piece for an engagement ring. Its lustre is vitreous and sparkle is stunning, primarily because of the precision cutting our master lapidarists provide in Sri Lanka. The oval shape was the perfect fit for this stone along with a flower cut pavilion that maximises the beauty of this sapphire. Natural and unheated, just the way we love our Madagascan Sapphires! The utmost care has been taken with the faceting of this gemstone and this makes it just more than a simple Madagascan Sapphire.
