Sri Lanka is known to produce the most gorgeous sapphires to the world.If you like to buy a peach sapphire engagement ring you want to inspect its clarity and cut, Mainly Sri Lankan peach sapphires have very good clarity and cut.Also so many Madagascar sapphires have in the market, Most of Madagascar peach sapphires have air bubbles inside the stones. It makes depreciate the value of a peach sapphire gemstone.
So better to avoid stone that has too many bubbles inside the stones.
MORGANITE Rings VS. Peach SAPPHIRE Rings
Compared to the peach sapphire which belongs to the corundum mineral family, morganite, which is in the beryl family, is less expensive. Morganite are soft than sapphire its hardness is 7.5 Mohs.This means they are relatively soft hence prone to cracking or scratching especially when worn throughout. Unlike the peach sapphire that can be worn on a daily basis without replacement in a lifetime, morganites are highly likely to be replaced and upgraded every so often. They can hardly be passed down to generations.
While peach sapphire sparkles (forever) and does not change color with time, morganite does not sparkle as much. Within a short time, its sparkle fades and starts to become cloudy. After some time of use and exposure to sunlight, the morganites start to fade off and may even turn to a colourless gemstone.
Further, morganite is very cheap in the market, not more than $100-$200 per ct. In Bangkok, morganite sells for $10 -$ 20. And most of the sellers are not aware of the treatments done to morganite and they are unable to issue certificates. And it’s useless to get the certificate to $10-$15 gemstones by wasting $100 -$150 for a certificate.
Also, remember morganite sell max $100-$200 per ct and sapphires not.
What is Lab Created or Cultured Peach Sapphires?
This is another trap created by some big companies to fool customers. When it says lab-created or man-made sapphire it is not attractive, so then they come up with a new word, ‘Cultured Sapphires’
So when you buy a sapphire ring, never buy a lab crated or cultured engagement ring. The engagement ring is something eternal so it should be a valuable investment that lasts forever.
I saw some sellers sell lab-created sapphires rings more than $2000 -$5000 and they have sales too. Actually, lab-created sapphires, not worth a penny.
Mainly sapphires come from Sri Lanka they are 100% conflict-free. I have 20+ years of experience in the Sri Lanka gem market. So I know those facts. If you come with lab-created sapphire to Sri Lanka Rathnapura gem market, it is the last day of your gem trade. No one will get stones from you ever.
