Madagascan Sapphire – Pink – Coffin – 0.45 Carats

$ 800.00

A stunningly pink coffin-shaped sapphire, or as we like to call it a star destroyer. This beauty is from Madagascar and travelled all the way to Sri Lanka to be cut into this fancy shape by our masterful lapidarists. It is 0.45 carats and has dimensions of 4.17mm by 7.14mm, with an accompanying pavilion depth of 2.53mm. The stone has slight clarity characteristics but does not detract from the beauty of the stone, in fact, it adds to its uniqueness of it. A bright pink, it glistens and pops when it hits the sunlight. Being unheated and natural makes this gemstone an object of envy. You don’t even need a fancy ring design for it, just have it in a single ring, or not, that’s the beauty of having a small sapphire that packs a punch.

You don’t belong in this coffin, but the coffin should belong to you! So just reach for it and you shall receive!
