One of my buyers found this oval cut blue sapphire while scanning the gem markets in Ratnapura, Sri Lanka. Ratnapura has another name its known by….The City of Gems
I loved the richness and depth of color of the stone as well as its overall visual appeal. The color I would classify as a Cobalt Blue. Equally impressive was that this was an unheated sapphire (less then 5% of the sapphires on the market are unheated) , and we had it certified by the GGTL gem lab to document that finding
The stone is also eye clean in clarity. I think this stone is destined for one stunning cocktail ring.
