When faceted, the best fancy sapphires display breathtaking colors. These stones show the beauty that skilled cutters can unlock from pieces of corundum rough.
A fancy sapphire’s value is based, most of all, on its color – its specific combination of hue, tone, and saturation. Fancy sapphires come in every imaginable color, caused by differing amounts and combinations of the trace elements iron, titanium, and chromium.
