A simply exceptional, rare and completely untreated/unheated Sapphire from Sri Lanka weighing a magnificent 10.82ct. The colour is a delightful hue of medium blue, not too light and not too dark, just as blue sapphire should be - extremely lovely indeed.

This is the best 10ct blue sapphire we have managed to source for the past several years, it is really a delightful gem. The cushion cut is superb with no windowing at all in the stone, and a perfect size for a stunning ring. Excellent repeat excellent vibrancy and lustre - this is a gem with great life and vitality. The stone comes complete with a certificate from the Gemological Institute of America confirming that there are no indications of heating within the stone.
