Padparadscha Sapphire value in international markets is extremely high. This desirable gemstone is highly popular among Japanese as they have a special affection for this gemstone and it is of great religious importance to them. Generally, Padparadscha Sapphire price per carat starts from 50,000 INR ($ 690) and goes up to 4,00,000 INR ($ 5520) and even more. Such a wide price difference is due to certain quality factors like origin, color, clarity, luster, and certification that play a crucial role in determining natural Padparadscha price in the market.
The below-mentioned quality factors will help you with a successful purchase of your Padparadscha gemstone or Padparadscha jewelry. Padparadscha price per carat depends on:
Origin – The finest and best quality Padparadscha Sapphire comes from the mines of Sri Lanka. Other specimens of gem-quality Padparadscha are sourced from the mining locations of Madagascar and Tanzania. Padparadscha Sapphire gemstones from Madagascar are slightly pinkish than orange and they are the next most preferred choice after Sri Lankan Padparadscha Sapphire.
Color – The word Padparadscha itself is derived from the Sanskrit language and refers to the rich color of a Lotus blossom. Padparadscha color is undoubtedly the most important factor that influences the Padparadscha Sapphire price. The color of Padparadscha ranges from light to medium pinkish-orange to orange-pink. Among the gem collectors and jewelry designers, the medium-toned pink-orange or orange-pink Padparadscha Sapphire with a perfect balance of pink and orange is considered most desirable.
Clarity – Padparadscha Sapphire is a Type II variety of gemstones that tends to have fewer eye-visible inclusions. The inclusions are in the form of feathers or fingerprints, rutile silk, hexagonal growth and color zoning. Because of its light hue, inclusions can be easily traced from the naked eyes. Eye-clean Padparadscha with no inclusions and high transparency is rare to find, therefore buyers may have to sacrifice on the high clarity in order to find Padparadscha with exceptional color quality.
Cut – Due to its rarity, Padparadscha Sapphire is most commonly cut into oval and cushion shapes to retain maximum weight. Emerald cut, round, or any other fancy-shaped Padparadscha are less common as they incur stone wastage. The best quality Padparadscha cabochons may appear transparent with perfect symmetrical domes.
Carat Weight – The Padparadscha price is defined on the basis of per Carat or per Ratti (1 Carat = 0.9 Ratti). The finest quality Padparadscha Sapphires are rare at any size. Therefore, even a minor variation in size can bring a huge difference in Padparadscha Sapphire price per carat.
Certification – The buyers get confused between the Orange Sapphire and Peach Sapphire, as they closely resemble each other. In such a situation, the buyer must check the original gem lab certification to ensure the authenticity of the gemstone. GemPundit provides 100% original and authentic IGI and GRS certificate of Padparadscha Sapphire.
