This lovely unheated sapphire is an unusual pale peach color with hints of pale violet blue–quite unusual and very beautiful in person. The gem has very good clarity, with just one small feather and a tiny amount of silk. Because of the orientation and size of the feather, it is very difficult to see face up without a loupe; it faces up as an eye-clean gemstone–it’s vastly better in person than the photo would imply. I have factored it into the pricing, making this an excellent value for the size and color.
This sapphire is faceted in the classic diamond round brilliant design, optimized for sapphire and cut to “hearts and arrows” precision. It weighs 1.66 carats and measures 7.0 x 4.5 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a beautiful engagement ring!
