Rare & stylish pink sapphire diamond ring
The pink sapphire diamond ring is a combination of diamond and the pink sapphire. This sapphire is rare and more expensive than the blue sapphire.
Padparadscha is the name for a rare orange-pink variety of sapphire which is more costly than even the top quality blue sapphires. The most expensive being those that are natural & not heat treated.
These are sold with a jeweler’s certificate from the GIA or FGA to show the qualities above.
The term padparadscha is derived from the Singhalese word for a salmon colored lotus blossom.
Sapphire is the birthstone for the month of September.
This was adopted in 1912 by the National Association of Jewelers. It is given as a gift for the 45th wedding anniversary and a worthy gift it is.
Pink sapphires can be enhanced in a variety of methods to improve their clarity and color. One of the most common is heat treatment.
This is done by heating the sapphires to temperatures of between 500 and 1800 C for several hours. You can also heat them in a nitrogen-deficient atmosphere oven for seven days or more.
This heat removes the inclusions and becomes eye clean under a jeweler’s magnification loupe. Thus be careful while purchasing your pink sapphire diamond ring that you get what you pay for.
If you are buying a ring with premium stones or an expensive ring, make sure you not only get a diamond certificate, get one for the sapphire too.
- Sapphire has a Mohs hardness number of 9 while diamond has 10 which is the hardest.
This fact makes the two a beautiful match as you don’t have to be worried of the diamond scratching the sapphire.
