Weighing an astonishing 13.39 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 and the Swiss Gemmological Institute to be of Kashmir origin, natural and untreated, meaning its beautiful color is entirely nature-made. The center stone is accentuated by a halo of sparkling white diamonds totaling 5.01 carats in its classic platinum 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 scarcity but also for the softness of their velvety blue hue. These coveted gems rarely appear on the market, especially those that are untreated and weigh over 10 carats. This stone, in particular, is exceptionally brilliant.Download the Certification
