Edwardian Platinum Kashmir Sapphire Ring

Kashmir Sapphire and Old European Diamond Estate Platinum Ring



The beauty and depth of intense, velvet blue color that fine Kashmir sapphires  are known for is second to none in the gem world.

Today fine Kashmir  sapphires are nearly unobtainable with the exception of estate sales and private  collections.

In the near 40 years that the mines were worked, from approximately 1880 through the 1920's, at an altitude of 14,600 feet in the small village of Sumjam in the northern India region of Kashmir, these sapphires  became legendary.

The Kashmir sapphire enjoys a sacred reputation to this day.

Fine blue Kashmir sapphire forms a class that stands entirely  alone in the world of fine sapphires. 
 I feel privileged whenever I hold one of  these stones in my hand and watch the dance of velvet blue breathing from within  these spectacular works of geologic art.

As a Gemologist and well-known connoisseur of fine sapphires I am frequently approached to either buy, sell or broker fine Kashmir sapphires.

Kashmir Sapphire Ring, Gemstone Appraisal

 Having a gemological laboratory of my own, my gemological associates and I can confirm whether or not a Kashmir sapphire is heated to enhance the depth of color, or the stone is, in fact, a Kashmir sapphire, OR a sapphire from another known locale.
