5.80ct Blue Cushion Cut Sapphire

Here is an "over the top" Natural Blue Sapphire. The American Gemological Laboratories is a highly respected lab for colored stones. They have determined that that origin of the stone is Burma (Myanmar). Burma sapphires are the most prized. Looking at the stone, it's easy to see why.

The color of the stone is exceptional. It's a vibrant vivid blue - bright and true. Combine this with the fact that AGL also determined the stone was not heated make it among the most desirable, and costly stones you will find. It is easy to see why in person. The pictures give you only the barest idea of the beauty.

The AGL report was drawn a few years back when the stone was set. The stone is currently loose. We will include a brand new AGL report.

Many Natural Sapphires are heated during the cutting and finishing process. This sapphire has not been heated.

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.
