Sapphire Color


#1

Hello, I would like your opinion on the color of this sapphire. A Neon color? Padparadascha? Changing color? the stone is untreated.

Nicolas,
That is an interesting conundrum you have there with those pictures. :thinking: From what I can see you have a sapphire that is all of the above! Of course lights will do crazy things to a stone. I say is is a beautiful shade of almost neon pink. All it needs is a slight push in the right direction. Possibly with the right setting you can bring out any color with that one. White , rose and yellow gold can make a huge difference in the way a stone shows its colors off and some will absorb the colors of the setting better than others. Just try it out on a few and see what works best if you are not looking to certify its color. Since it is not treated, by all means, keep it un-treated. They are getting harder and harder to find it seems and a nice investment. I would love to see what you do with it in the end.
All the best,
Otter

Thank you, for your interesting opinion, it is a magnificent sapphire never seen in these colors in 10 years of purchase.
I will not heat it. For now I do not know yet if I sell it or if I make a jewelry.
I have another much less Neon color. I had it certified by IGI, Grader Color Change Purple to Purple Pink but the stone is of different color.

Good stones certainly. It would good to show the pearshape sapphire to a heat treater, its possible the silk will be removed the stone can be turned into a much more valuable stone. Thats my personal opinion at Navneet Gems. Do not take this information for granted.
