Colour change gemstones are rare, especially in sapphires. A high quality piece like this, especially in such a generous size, is rarely seen for sale as they are often snapped up by collectors with close ties to miners. We obtained this piece direct from the miner who dug it up on his claim in Queensland many years ago.
Colour change sapphires are incredibly difficult to photograph so we have added many photos with the sapphire under different types of light. None of these photos are altered other than a change of light source. A truly amazing piece.
Sapphires are the second hardest natural gemstone after diamond. Hardness is very important if the piece is to be worn daily, as in the case with an engagement ring. Sapphires are one of the few gemstones suitable for this purpose and Australian sapphires are some of the worlds best. If this sapphire is not exactly what you are after or if you have other requests please contact us as we have a vast collection and a wonderful group of miners who toil day in day our looking for more of these enchanting and enduring crystals.
These are photos of the actual gemstone you will receive.
If you choose to take the piece loose or view it in your own home before returning for manufacturing it will come beautifully packaged in a sustainably grown timber gem box. Some of our customers have actually proposed this way, with the loose gem in our nice box. Then both partners can be involved in the design and manufacturing of the piece. A thoughtful way to start the next chapter of your lives together.
