This beautiful gem is a very fine loose natural Ceylon violet sapphire that has been finely cut and polished in a traditional oval shape. This makes it very easy for a jeweller to set and it will suit any jewellery setting you would like. The violet colour is delicate yet quite striking and very elegant in my opinion. I don't see many of these Ceylon sapphires with this violet colour these days and they are always a pleasure when they do come along. This is a very lovely sapphire that you will be most happy with.
