Sapphire Colour Change: A Marvel of Nature

Sapphire gemstones have multiple colour and hues, introducing the captivating phenomenon of colour change sapphire. These gems exhibit a remarkable ability to shift colours, ranging from purple to blue and vice versa, under varying lighting conditions. This change isn’t influenced by personal emotions but by the type of light the gemstone is exposed to. Under fluorescent light, a vivid blue to violetish blue hue is observed, while warm lighting reveals a stunning purple shade. In natural daylight, the sapphire showcases a blend of blue and purple tones, making it a unique and mesmerising gemstone.

Imagine the owning unique sapphire jewellery that appears different under various lighting conditions, creating the illusion of possessing multiple pieces of jewellery in one!

The Rarity of Sapphires

Sapphires are renowned for their incredible range of colours, from the most valuable and intense vivid Royal Blue to the rare and exquisite orange-pink or pinkish-orange Padparadscha Sapphire. This gemstone family encompasses a spectrum of shades, including yellow, orange, pink, green. Among these, the teal sapphire bluish-green hue, are also popular choice for stunning gemstone engagement ring. Each sapphire’s unique colour adds to its attractiveness and rarity, making it a prized possession for gemstone enthusiasts and collectors.

Valuing Colour Change Sapphires

The value of coloured gemstones is generally determined by the intensity and saturation of their colour. Gemstones with strong, vivid colours are typically more valuable than those with lighter or pastel shades. In the case of colour change sapphires, the degree of colour change—whether weak, moderate, or strong—plays a crucial role in determining their value. The contrast between the two colours and the intensity of this change are the primary factors influencing the gemstone’s worth.

Similar to all sapphire gemstone, whether does it undergo any heat treatment will also determine the rarity of the gemstone. Prices for colour change sapphires can range from $3,900 per carat to over $5,000 per carat for unheated specimens. The uniqueness and high demand for fine quality sapphires have driven these prices to rise exponentially.

Cut and Clarity: Enhancing the Beauty

Like other coloured sapphires, colour change sapphires are cut and polished from rough stones, commonly shaped into cushions and ovals. Due to their rarity, finding less common shapes like heart-shaped or round sapphires can be challenging and time-consuming. Clarity is another factor affecting a sapphire’s value, although it is less critical than colour intensity. However, a sapphire with too many inclusions can lose its appeal and durability, impacting its overall value.
