While this natural Padparadscha sapphire has mesmerized gem and jewelry connoisseurs since ages. This orangy-pink, 1.69 carats, heated and GRS certified is one fancy sapphire variety that has a distinct allure and prestige all its own. This mysterious and coveted padparadscha measuring 7.97 x 6.91 x 3.46 mm has lots of benefits. Padparadscha sapphire derives its name from the Sanskrit "padma ranga" which means "lotus color," for its resemblance to the famed lotus flowers of Sri Lanka. Traditionally, Padparadscha sapphires must combine elements of pink and orange in one gem to justly claim their padparadscha title.
