Weighing an astonishing 13.33 carats, this natural Kashmir sapphire is beyond compare. The elegant cushion-shaped gem exhibits the impeccable, velvety cornflower blue hue so desired in these jewels. The sapphire is certified by Gubelin to be of Kashmir origin, natural and untreated, meaning its beautiful color is completely nature-made. The center stone is set off by a halo of twelve sparkling emerald-cut white diamonds and a band covered in pave-set diamonds, all totaling 4.56 carats in its striking 18K white gold setting.
Sapphires hailing from the Kashmir region are the pinnacle of quality and beauty, and they are ranked among the world's most desirable gemstones alongside Burma rubies and the rarest colored diamonds. First discovered in 1879 in the northwestern part of the Indian subcontinent, Kashmir sapphires are revered not only for their general scarcity but also for the softness of their velvety blue hue. These coveted gems rarely appear on the market, especially those weighing over 10 carats, and this stone, in particular, is exceptionally brilliant.Download the Certification
