1.  No 1 Selling Sapphire “Emerald Cut”

The emerald cut sapphire not only out sells all other cuts over 2019 its also one of the rarest cuts to find, on our last trips to Sri Lanka (Ceylon) towards the end of 2019 after seeing thousands of natural sapphires in a variety of colors and cuts we bought a total of 54 natural Ceylon sapphires from 2.00 cts to 8.50cts, out of the 54 gems only 8 were Emerald and Asscher cuts, once these sapphires were set into custom platinum rings all 8 were sold in the first 3 weeks.

The emerald cut sapphire is one of the hardest cuts to find, this is partly due to the waste in rough corundum when one of these cuts is chosen over say, an oval or cushion cut sapphire along with needing a sapphire with very good clarity and consistent color with little to no zoning. The open table of this cut acts as a mirror when looking into the stone highlighting and magnifying any small inclusion, for these reasons most miners choose other cuts over an emerald or square cut sapphire which will yield a higher carat weight for them along with a sapphire which shows off better clarity.

This is why both the emerald cut and asscher cut sapphire demands much higher price per carat in the markets and mines, sometimes as much as 3 times the price per carat for a blue sapphire with good clarity and color.

At over 10.50 carats this sapphire ring certainly makes an entrance, what just as important is the sapphire size in mm, most people take the standard carat weight and associate this against a diamond carat weight, but when it comes to sapphires you do need to look at the size of each stone along with the weight.A Sapphire is an extremely dense stone looking at what we call the surface area is just as important as the weight.

This platinum sapphire engagement ring is a perfect example with a weight at 10.51 ct and a size at 12.89 x 12.17 x 7.43 mm has a surface area similar to sapphires around 13 to 14 carats. If this sapphire was just 2 mm deeper it then could quiet easily add on 2-3 cts in weight which gives you an idea on how dense a natural sapphire is.
