Kashmir Sapphire Cushion Cut, 3.13 ct
Imagine the ocean sparkling in the moonlight. That’s the hypnotic effect of this exquisite 3.13-carat Kashmir sapphire as it moves in the light. Its deep-blue hue, certified as natural with no indications of heat treatment to enhance its beauty, saturates the stone well without making it opaque. The mixed cut of this Kashmir sapphire’s rectangular cushion shape provides an excellent length-to-width ratio and table percentage, allowing you to clearly see the flashes of light within. These qualities combined give this Kashmir sapphire a sense of mystery that will leave you spellbound.
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.
