The rarest color of sapphire is the lotus colored Padparadscha once reserved for Indian royalty. This is the most attractive certified hue I have seen. This lotus-pink sapphire has the most desirable Padaparadscha shade, orangish-pink. It has vibrant orange flashes in sun, natural light, indoors and candlelight. The flashes of fiery orange will artfully dance in the fine, lotus pink sapphire, like flames from an oil lamp dancing in a rose petal.
STUNNING, Rarest sapphire color.
UPDATE (Sept 2, 2018)- GIA Certified as "Padparadscha Sapphire," natural conundrum (pinkish Orange) Diamonds (GIA) Certified Natural Untreated, Earth Mined, Near Colorless Diamonds
The GIA lab signed off as natural padparadscha. No treatment except industry standard heat. GIA certification will be included when shipped. The ring appears as a gorgeous lotus flower pink and flashes of orange hue dance inside the gem and give it a hint of the orange lotus pod.
We estimate this ring to be from the 1960's to the 1980's but the classic styling makes it hard to date and this ring could be older or newer. The point is, it will never go out of style. Also has a hallmark - CJ We had two of these rings and no more available to us we bought them in a bankruptcy sale of a high end jewelry store.
