Reminiscent of delicate, blossom-pink flowers, this highly unusual stone can be found in a spectrum of striking hues, from soft peach-pink to warm rose-gold and the prettiest pastels. First found in Sri Lanka, the name ‘Padparadscha’ is derived from ‘lotus blossom’ in Sinhala, the island’s native language.
An extraordinary sapphire
Romance and intrigue surround the Padparadscha sapphire; its orange-pink hue a remarkable quirk of nature. Rarer still than the blue sapphire, and far lesser known due to this scarcity, Padparadscha sapphires are treasured by collectors seeking the world’s most extraordinary stones.
“The orange-pink of Padparadscha is the perfect complement to lustrous pearls and white diamonds.”
Coming across a Padparadscha sapphire that combines brilliant clarity and the desired level of colour is a precious gift. Only Padparadscha sapphires of the most breath-taking orange-pink are brought to our Bond Street atelier, where they are crafted into exquisite High Jewellery.
The power of flowers
The delicate lotus-petal pink of the Padparadscha sapphire lends itself beautifully to floral-inspired jewellery design, such as our striking and contemporary cocktail ring collection, and one-of-a-kind pieces created to showcase this stone’s exceptional beauty.
