2.53 ct Purple Oval Sapphire
A pretty gemstone so full of lustre from combined purple and pink tones. A perfect center stone for classic engagement 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.
