Yellow Sapphire is a variety of the corundum species that has gained immense popularity over the last few years. This is because of their close resemblance to the warm canary colors seen in diamonds. Formerly known more commonly as ‘Oriental Topaz’, the colors can reach the brownish yellow shades of a light cognac. Iron is the trace element in sapphires responsible for these golden hues and is directly proportional to the saturation of color. Yellow sapphires can more often than not, be seen in specially cut stones, this also doubles up to save weight from the rough gem.
