Pink plus orange tones gives this magnificent Sri Lankan sapphire a rose gold or burnt copper colour. Colour can appear more orange or more pink in different lighting.

Distinctly different but in close range for chocolate colour sapphires and champagne colour sapphires if you fancy those shades.  

Bright, well cut natural untreated sapphire. 

Light inclusions visible at close look. 

Radiant cut increases the sparkle of loose gemstones while intensifying the depth of colour. 

Beautiful natural loose sapphire for a custom engagement ring or to celebrate a special event.  

We imagine this set in rose or yellow gold to complement its colour but white gold could potentially create a higher contrast.  

Work with your local jeweller to create a custom fine jewellery with this magnificent loose gemstone.

Free of Treatment 

According to GIA, 95% of sapphires have been treated in some form. Unheated means this sapphire has not had any treatment, including the common heat treatment, and therefore the colour and cleanliness is completely due to natural formation and survival of the gem over many thousand years.


When we source our sapphires we make sure they are of the finest quality and will be the highlight, in their own right, irrespective of the jewellery design. Each gemstone is cut to enhance its natural beauty, and in such a way that it may be set in the simplest solitaire engagement ring setting to stunning effect. 

Independently Certified 

Each of our sapphires are independently certified.
