Yellow Sapphires come in a wide variety of tones and saturations; from vivid sunflower yellows, to the glowing orange and golden colours of a summer sunset. The most in-demand Yellow Sapphires currently seem to be the vibrant canary yellows, especially those that have good clarity and strong brilliance.
A round brilliant cut Yellow Sapphire can almost be indistinguishable from a Yellow Diamond, and is strikingly similar in the way it behaves in direct sunlight. Yellow Sapphire can be found naturally in Australia, Burma, Cambodia, Thailand and the USA. Some of the very finest specimens are currently being discovered in Songea, Tanzania.
