GIA certified Ceylon padparadsha, 2.37Ct, cushion cut

June 20, 2013 in Padparadshas (& close)

An outstandingly nice padparadsha, certified as such by GIA. Cut is good but not great, but color is perfect, as per today’s standard (my feeling is it’s a bit too intense for a padparadsha, see #177 for a softer one).

Completely eye clean.

Origin : Bought as Ceylon ; gemmologist’s opinion : Ceylon.
Treatment : Traditional heat.
Price : $5700
Inventory : #190
Photo condition : White halogen, white balanced calibrated from camera on a white sheet, no retouch. Photographed over a slightly cream paper to help control light balance.
