Need help appraise my sapphires any suggestions?

Guys take a look at my sapphires any suggestions about colour, origins ? Has flaws!

Hi, fairly dark the 2nd from left has a bit of life, I don’t believe they are well cut,
difficult to pinpoint an origin, a lot of people probably would label them Australian, but they could be from India, Thailand, Vietnam. just as a guess

quality price not sure but I would not think a great deal
may be some of the other forum followers can give an idea as well

I would agree with Syd the cutting does not look that good and so would hazard a guess that they may be African? I buy quite a lot of African rough Sapphire and whilst you do get some very nice pieces a great deal of it does cut dark. I never let my rough get cut in Africa always Sri Lanka, sadly African cutting is normally below standard in my experience.


Have to agree with SydP and Chris777, cutting is poor and I can see unpolished sections and scratches on the facets. The stones don’t exude ‘life’ they don’t dance or attract your attention, I would suggest that the facet angles might be wrong which would explain why the stones are lifeless.

They might respond to being re-cut by a professional cutter, this might lighten the stones a bit, unlikely though, but could significantly improve their value. A lot will depend on what’s in the stone, silk, inclusions etc and where they are from.

First how do you know it is real sapphire ?
Have to test carefully if positive maybe from Africa. Or India Cut not so good that’s one of point.
