Very fine, unheated and well cut yellow sapphires from Sri Lanka are in very high demand, especially within the Indian market. In India, they are considered "lucky stones" that give one the ability to succeed in all areas of life: wealth, good luck, happiness and expansion of all that's good. For many years, the Indian market bought only lower quality yellow sapphires due to the lower standard of income throughout the country. The recent rise of the Indian economy, similar to that in China, has created great wealth. Many of the Indian gem dealers started buying finer quality, unheated yellow sapphires like this beauty. Consequently, the prices at the mines in Sri Lanka have been going up for years at an accelerated pace. That makes this elegant unheated yellow sapphire an exceptional value today and most likely in the future as well. We do not see this trend slowing down as it is culturally entrenched. It's a classic case of too much new demand and too few available. If you need an additional reason to purchase this fine gemstone, it comes from the prestigious "Somewhere In The Rainbow" Collection, giving it a wonderful provenance.

September's birthstone has come a long way since the days when any and every blue stone was called a sapphire. Though its fame is shared with its "Big Three" counterparts ruby and emerald, sapphire has enjoyed a long run as one of the world's most beloved gemstones, earning itself a place of honor in crown jewels, royal accessories, museums, and even in modern royal engagement rings. Lest sapphire get too haughty, it has common uses as well. The rough polishing material on emery boards is made up of lower-quality corundum grains, strengthened with hematite, magnetite and quartz.
