Sapphire, Cushion Cut, 2.41 CT
It’s been said that during the Middle Ages, clergy wore blue sapphires to symbolize heaven, while ordinary folks believed the precious stone attracted blessings from above. That certainly is the case with this divine specimen, a heavenly natural blue sapphire from Kashmir with an evenly spread deep-blue color unenhanced by heat treatment as certified by the American Gemological Laboratories. Weighing 2.41 carats and crafted into a cushion shape, this Kashmir sapphire looks lovely.
Discovered in the Himalaya Mountains of northwest India in 1881, the legendary Kashmir sapphires, with their extraordinary vivid blue color—often called “cornflower blue”—and velvety luster, are the most beautiful and treasured of all blue sapphires. Kashmir sapphires have a highly saturated and uniform color, along with a characteristic “silkiness” or glow, that make them a phenomenon of nature. With the original mines long depleted, Kashmir sapphires are a rare find and among the most prized of all gemstones today. To learn more about Kashmir sapphires, click here.
