4.76ct Blue Cushion Cut Sapphire

The stone is over-the-top beautiful. The color will draw you to it immediately. It's an incredibly pure blue with just a tiny teeny-weeny little bit of purple.

The material – the actual sapphire itself - is so beautifully transparent that the stone has an amazing sparkle and crystal like quality. There is a bit of minor color banding, I can notice it in extremely bright lighting only - and its minor.

The cut quality of the stone is awesome – you can see the small table and beautiful facet work. We believe the stone was heated during the cutting process to even out the color. This is a customary step in the cutting process. Without a doubt, the stone is pricey. However if you compare it to a non-heated sapphire of this caliber, it's probably about half the price.

In the photo on the right, you can see what I'm talking about.

The Sapphire on the left is quite a nice one. Believe it or not, in this particular case, the Sapphire on the left had a higher price than the stone on the right - which is the stone I chose. It's making its new owner very happy as you read this.

Sparkle is the type of Sapphires, Rubies, and Emeralds we carry.

Our stones are all NATURAL - including this awesome Sapphire.

This one is a great example of the sparkle I love combined
with a deep rich color

Many Natural Sapphires, as is true of this one, are heated during the cutting and finishing process.

Why we sell heated sapphires

When shopping for the gems we offer, we have incredibly high standards. We want to carry only exceptional diamonds, and sapphires. Yet we want to do this in a way that includes the collectors, and connoisseurs, as well as "normal people" who may want to forgo some of the finer points to get more bang for the buck.

When it comes to sapphires, there is a distinction between heated, and non heated stones. If a sapphire can be cut that keeps the color saturation, and brilliance without heating, it will bring a premium over a heated stone. In some cases, a huge premium.

The evidence of heating is fairly simple for labs to detect.

We have purchased sapphires that were claimed to be non heat stones, and sent them to GIA - every time they've come back non heated. We are very choosy in our sources as well.

No matter how comfortable we are with our sources for Sapphires, we will only guarantee a sapphire "non heated" with a GIA report to back it up.

The reason we offer primarily heated sapphires is that heating can be considered a part of the cutting process for most sapphire rough. When done properly, it will produce an even color and reduce the appearance of color striations - color banding.

We can obtain non heated sapphires when needed, usually we'll have a few on the site. However, when I see a stone that has a great appearance and reasonable price that has been heated, I like to offer them.
