by Tom Rene Engagement Rings Designer

Peach Sapphire Engagement Rings are the new trend and its popularity has grown massively over the past few years. The feminine attributes and the warm tone gives has made Peach Sapphires to be a commonly worn gemstone in the current context.

As per the official gemmological color codes, Yellow, orange, and pink have combined to for the color peach. For laymen to understand, the color peach is used for such sapphires.

Morganite color, or in other words, peach or light pinkish shade, is the color that is expected in a peach sapphire, which is known for its beauty and value. In terms of the quality, orange/pink or peach sapphire is valued more than Morganites.

Due to the popularity of Morganites, the original Morganites that are almost white beryl are treated for a better color. However, exposure to natural sunlight could make the color fade in case of such a treatment, which will return to its original color after wearing it for a couple of months. Further, Sapphires are considered to be harder than Morganites as Sapphires scale at 9 in the Mohs while Morganites scale between 7 to 8.

The color of Peach sapphire could range based on a ratio of orange, yellow and pink and the intensity of the color also changes from stone to stone. In choosing a color, a fact to consider is the saturation of the color. A lightly colored peach sapphire could take the color of the surrounding and look a little different to its original color. For instance, the stone would look more peach if a light colored peach or pink sapphire is mounted into a rose gold color.

There are many types of peach sapphires found in many parts of the world. Padparadscha Sapphire is one such type of peach sapphires, which is originated in Sri Lanka. The color of Padparadscha is considered special as it is often called as a marriage between a lotus flower in a sunset, that is made in heaven.

The name Padparadscha has numerous controversies. Few believe that it should be a Padparadscha only if it is not treated while some accept treatments to Padparadscha sapphires who also neglects its origin. It is an accepted fact that untreated Sri Lankan Padparadscha sapphires deserve the name Padparadscha which has a delicate pinkish orange color. However, due to the wider variation in the colors of pink and orange, color categorization Padparadscha is very subjective.

As compared to other sapphires, Padparadscha sapphires are considered to be more valuable and desired due to its stunning beauty and for being one of the rarest of its kind. Therefore, Padparadscha sapphires are sold in the market at a very high price, yet highly regarded and demanded.
