  • Padparadscha is the rarest variety of sapphires found in Sri Lanka. It’s the rarest and most prized form of sapphire. The Name is the Sinhalese word "padma radschen,” meaning lotus blossom, as the stone color is similar to the lotus blossom.


    One of the single largest ultra-fine quality padparadscha sapphire we have ever seen. This is a spectacularly enormous stone. The clarity is flawless, and the cutting is excellent. This unimaginably rare gemstone is beautifully cut to maximize its glorious color: Tones of orange and pink melting into a union that gives padparadscha its name. In Singhalese, padparadscha means “lotus blossom.” Tell someone you saw a flawlessly clean, almost 20 CT Ceylon padparadscha; they won't believe you! Did you know that Padparadschas are rarely seen over 5 CTS  - a 10 CT is considered impossible? Want a 20 CT blue sapphire?
