2.01 ct Purple Oval Sapphire
Great gemstone for the price. The vibrant purplish colour and classic cut of this fancy sapphire makes it a great center stone to a 3 stone ring.
More care is needed with treated stones.
Sapphires can be treated to improve colour by a process called diffusion. Older stones treated in this way may only have treatment near the surface, so if you become aware that you or a customer has a stone treated in this way avoid repolishing.
