3.88ct Orange Emerald Cut Sapphire

There are literally hundreds of Sapphires passing over my desk in any given month. I generally pause only for exceptional stones.

This one stopped me in my tracks.

The color is remarkably vivid - no other way to describe it.

In terms of brilliance and transparency of the material - this is one of the clearest, most (I hesitate to say it) diamond like sapphires I've seen in its sparkle.

It's an awesome hybrid Emerald/Radiant Cut design. The bottom of the stone is a traditional step cut emerald design. Combine this with a Radiant Cut crown, and the effect is dazzling, in this stone.

Small movements create dazzling changes in color as the facets work together.

The stone is free from the type of color banding that looks like dark areas - or spots.

Sapphires are not graded for clarity like diamonds are, but this one is very clean, and with this amount of brilliance, that's another huge plus to the stone.

The stone was heated as part of the cutting process. This is normal and customary on such stones in this price range.

A stone of this color and brilliance, classifies as non heated by GIA could easily bring 5 times the price.

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.

Many Natural Sapphires, as we assume 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.
