Weighing 3.93 carats, this cushion-cut Kashmir sapphire displays the lustrous, velvety blue hue so beloved in these rare stones. The gem is certified by both the Swiss Gemological Institute and the American Gemological Laboratories as being Kashmir in origin and free from any thermal treatments, meaning its color is entirely natural.
Sapphires hailing from the Kashmir region are undeniably the pinnacle of this popular variety of corundum. Unearthed in the early 1880s after a landslide in the northwestern region of the Indian subcontinent, Kashmir sapphires are revered not only for their general scarcity, but also the softness of their blue hue. And, unlike other colored gemstones, the stone’s incomparable color overwhelms in any kind of light.
This example is set in a dazzling, one-of-a-kind titanium and 18K white gold setting with white diamonds totaling 11.76 carats.Download the CertificationsClick here to view a video of this item.
