Yellow, Orange and Padparadcha Sapphires

SAPPHIRE - from the Latin word meaning "blue", the birthstone for September. Yellow sapphires are available in many shades and tones, ranging from light yellow, looking almost like a yellow diamond (if properly cut and polished) to an intense, saturated yelow or beautiful orange tone. The most valuable fancy color sapphire (and the rarest) is called "Padparadscha" (Sinhalese for "lotus blossom") and has a blend of orange and pink. Natural padparadscha sapphires sell at a premium, nearing the price for a fine blue sapphire. Although the exact color description is debated, the beauty of these rare gemstonesĀ  with their delicate blended pink and orange shades is universally esteemed.
On this page you will find a number of current yellow and orange sapphires, selected from our stock for gem presentation.

NOTE: Stones on this page were photographed under 5000 Kelvin "daylight" lighting.
For maximum color accuracy, descriptions were made in north-facing natural daylight,
indoors, between 11am-2pm, at 32.89Ā°N latitude.

COLOR: Wherever possible, a similar Pantone Color Card number has been used, NOT the Pantone colors online,
which necessarily use RGB approximations, are grayer, and not at all the same.
Since color is so subjective to lighting conditions, and light is in turn subjective to location,
descriptions and pictures are intended to give a general idea of actual color.
To know what these stones really look like, there is no substitute for seeing them in person.
