Lot Essay


Kashmir sapphires are highly coveted for their brilliance and strong saturation of velvet blue, which is reminiscent of the color of a peacock’s neck.

The discovery of Kashmir sapphires began in 1881, when a landslide in the Zanskar range of the northwestern Himalayas first revealed sapphire-bearing rocks. The majority of the world’s most beautiful and highest-valued sapphires were mined from the region, including the present stones. By 1887, Kashmir’s first sapphire mine had been exhausted and production ceased. As a result, gem-quality Kashmir sapphires are now extremely rare.

Kashmir sapphires command a much higher price premium than all other sapphires, not only for their rarity, but also for their rich, velvety blue color that has a mesmerizing quality. This extraordinary Kashmir is exceedingly astonishing, not only for its exceptional color and transparency but for its prominent carat weight of 43.10 carats.

Mounted at the center of a diamond bracelet, this cushion-shaped Kashmir sapphire rests upon a bed of impressively sized D color, Internally Flawless diamonds – a setting worthy of such a princely stone.
