Cushion Shape Orange Sapphire

Orange Sapphire

Here is an orange sapphire we have affectionately named "The Great Pumpkin".  This exceptional gem is a cushion shape with brilliant faceting.  The color, a vibrant orange with subtle flashes of yellow, is rare among sapphires.  The gem weighs 3.13 carats.

The unique color and shape of this sapphire suggests a number of design possibilities.  The vibrant orange color would create a striking contrast if set in platinum, or a soothing complement to the warmth of yellow gold.  The shape of the gem could be highlighted with a bezel setting or the fiery brilliance of the faceting showcased in a prong setting (either simple or French double-prongs). Finally, the gem could be set in a jewel (a ring pendant or brooch) as a single gemstone or with accenting gems along either the longer or shorter sides.  A halo of sparkling rose- or brilliant-cut diamonds is also a possibility.


Weight: 3.13 carats

Measurements: L 8.65 x W 7.24 x D 5.45 mm

Cut Style: cushion cut

Color: vibrant orange with subtle flashes of yellow (heat treated)

Cost: Although this striking gemstone has sold, you will find many more beautiful gems in the Gemstone Gallery.

Gemstone Notes:

The color of this gem is rare among sapphires for which blue, yellow and pink are predominant shades.  The natural hardness of sapphire (9 on the Mohs scale, second only to diamond) and the sturdiness of the cut make it ideal for setting in a ring, pendant or brooch.

It is common practice for gem cutters to heat sapphire to improve the gem's color and appearance.  You should assume that all sapphires have been heat treated unless the seller specifically guarantees otherwise.  We believe that this sapphire has been heat treated.
