  • Catalogue Essay

    Padparadscha sapphires are arguably one of the rarest and precious fancy coloured sapphires. Most are naturally drawn to its enigmatic colour. With its name deriving from ancient Sanskrit, meaning Lotus flower, these romantic gemstones display a unique combination of pink and orange colour. To be considered a padparadscha, the gemstone must possess both orange and pink colours, ranging from pinkish-orange to orange-pink hues, and it is this delicate balance which makes padparadscha sapphires such a rarity.

    Increasingly recognised for its beauty and rarity by gem connoisseurs, the padparadscha sapphire gained huge popularity when Princess Eugenie announced her engagement in 2018.

    Lot 588, an 8.24ct padparadscha sapphire, surrounded by a halo of diamonds, displays a beautiful hue of orangey-pink. A padparadscha sapphire of this size and quality, possessing a strong, even saturation and good clarity, is extremely rare.

    橙粉紅色剛玉可謂芸芸彩色剛玉之中最珍罕的品種之一,它那夢幻迷人的炫目色澤,使人心醉神馳。「Padparadscha」一詞源於古代梵文,意為蓮花,寶石呈與別樹一幟的橙粉紅色,浪漫而神秘。只有同時具有橙色及粉紅色、從粉橙到橙粉色不等的寶石才能被稱為橙粉紅色剛玉,這種絕妙的平衡,使橙粉紅色剛玉彌足珍貴。

    近年來,橙粉紅色剛玉之美及稀有程度漸獲寶石鑑賞家注目。2018年尤金妮公主宣布訂婚時,手上配戴的橙粉紅色剛玉戒指引來大眾熱議,令寶石聲名大噪。

    拍品編號 588 橙粉紅色剛玉戒指重 8.24 克拉,主石周邊飾鑽石,呈絢麗奪目的橙粉紅色,奢華動人。如本品般尺寸巨大、色澤均勻、淨度上佳的橙粉紅色剛玉可謂舉世罕見。
