Green sapphire has always been a personal favorite of mine, but finding them is easier said then done. Many are muddy green in color and lack any sparkle, but when I saw this stone that was originally found in Madagascar, I knew it had potential.
It started out as a 6.5 carat cushion cut with a small chip in the girdle (the girdle is The edge formed where the top (crown) and bottom (pavilion) of a stone meet.) as you can see from some of the pictures, but it lacked any brilliance and the true potential of its color didn't show through.
We decided to recut itto a stunning 4.87 carat radiant emerald cut and you can see both the brilliance and the color are now amplified. It's truly a stunning sapphire. It literally took this stone to a Cinderalla status
