When it comes such a fine quality gem this brilliant, one does not need a spectacular design to dress up the ring. Its colour, brilliance, lustre, sparkle speaks for itself.
A royal blue unheat sapphire with brilliance and lustre unparalleled, it is becoming exceedingly difficult even for gem connoisseurs to find such quality in today’s market.
In the not so distant past (just a few years ago), it was not uncommon to hear of and see top fine quality sapphires available in sizes more than 5 cts. Today, in the year 2015, fine quality unheated sapphires of such unparalleled beauty in sizes above 3 ct is becoming very difficult to source.
Below is a 3.2ct unheat sapphire we wished we had never let go. It is a bittersweet parting, because it will be a long time before we can source something of comparable quality.
