Ceylon Sapphire Gemstone

Made famous in the UK after Princess Diana was given a large Ceylon Sapphire in the centre of her engagement ring and subsequently the ring re-emerged when given to Catherine Middleton on her engagement to Prince William, Ceylon Sapphire is today regarded as the finest Sapphire still being mined in any commercial quantity.

Its hue varies from a medium royal blue to a lighter blue (known as cornflower).The gem often will have some inclusions and slight colour zoning, therefore it is often heat treated to produce a gem that is more appealing to the masses. Its hue varies from almost pure blue to a purplish blue and its tone ranges from approximately 30 to 75% for desirable gems.
