Sapphires, also known as corundum, hold a reputation for being remarkable gemstones. Aside from the basics such as their relative hardness, they can be found in an astonishing range of color and saturation.
From canary yellow to fiery orange, vivid red (aka ruby) to blush pink and royal purple, every color of the rainbow is represented and from pale to powerful.
But at the pinnacle of mystery is that some change their hue. Only natural, no-heat ones are capable of this slight of the eye and most often their hue is in the blue and purple range.
When exposed to different lights, this 5.65 carat oval shifts from sheer, pale baby blue to subtle lilac. Placing it in incandescent light, the blue comes forward; in natural light, lilac peeks through.
While you must look closely for the magic, it is there for you to behold. Diamonds fall in ribbons of platinum to enhance the sapphire. With .80 carats, the 10 diamonds flow upward as if blowing in the breeze.
