4.02 Cushion No Heat Ceylon Sapphire Ring - SKU 1359
Purple sapphires can sometimes be confused with amethyst, a gemstone composed of a violet or purple variety of quartz. Not only are purple sapphires more rare, but they’re also more durable than amethyst, registering a 9 (as opposed to a 7) on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness. Purple sapphires also have greater clarity and sparkle.

It has a beautiful violet-purple color with great saturation and a lovely light play off the brilliant-cut facets. Here, we’ve placed this special sapphire into an original Jogani ring setting of high-karat yellow gold that complements its color perfectly.
