3.46 ct Ceylon Padparadscha Sapphire
Padparadscha ("pad") sapphires are always rare, but this is the first round well-proportioned pad that we've ever seen. It has an ID report from Richard Hughes' renowned Lotus Gemology Laboratory, confirming its padparadscha label and Sri Lankan origin. Most gem connoisseurs consider Sri Lankan sapphires like this to be the only true padparadschas. This lovely sapphire has the highly desired pinkish-orange "sunset" hue, medium-light tone, intense saturation, excellent clarity, and would make a gorgeous engagement ring or a stunning right hand ring!
