The rarest color of sapphire is an exquisite orangy-pink hue, known by the name "padparadscha". Padparadscha (pronounced: pawd-pa-rawd-shaw) refers to the color of a barely-blooming lotus flower, and comes from the Sinhalese language of Sri Lanka.
This padparadscha is divine. It weighs 1.13 carats, and has been fashioned into an oval shape. It has a vivid orangy-pink color, and the most amazing sparkle. The sapphire has been heated and is accompanied by an AGL report.
Consider this sapphire for the centerpiece of a ring to mark an important occasion. Fancy shaped diamonds, precious platinum, and hand-crafted details would complete the perfect setting for this padparadscha.
