Price of Blue Sapphire?
Worth of blue sapphire comes from its rareness and prominence as a jewelry gemstone. In addition, being astrologically significant, the price of blue sapphire in India or beyond falls in a broad range of ₹ 500 and ₹ 2,00,000 plus per carat.
Sapphires are heat processed to improve color and to eliminate color zoning. Natural, unheated blue sapphires are typically more expensive (depending on other factors) than heated or chemically processed stones. Lab produced blue sapphires are frequently sold as genuine pieces but are neither deserving nor astrologically significant.
Blue Sapphire prices do much higher than most precious gemstones when it comes to inclusions. Finding an eye-clean original blue sapphire is extremely unusual as almost any original Neelam stone includes rutile needle (Silk) inclusions. The location, volume, and design of the inclusions can also affect Neelam's costs.
'True Blue' or 'Royal Blue' is the most attractive hue of blue sapphires. In addition, tone, saturation, and color quality have a major effect on the overall value of a blue sapphire. A clear, pure blue, and brightly saturated piece has a far better retail price than sapphires that are too dark or too blue or grey.
A finely cut blue sapphire adds good money to the market value as it can improve the clarity of the stone and mask noticeable inclusions. If the consistency is the same, the rounder or oval-shaped blue sapphires are cheaper than the square or other custom shapes due to the stone wastage caused by the process.
