Padparadscha Ring Jewellery 1 1

Beauty in full bloom

Reminiscent of delicate, blossom-pink flowers, this highly unusual stone can be found in a spectrum of striking hues, from soft peach-pink to warm rose-gold and the prettiest pastels. First found in Sri Lanka, the name ‘Padparadscha’ is derived from ‘lotus blossom’ in Sinhala, the island’s native language.

Padparadscha Sapphire High Jewellery

An extraordinary sapphire

Romance and intrigue surround the Padparadscha sapphire; its orange-pink hue a remarkable quirk of nature. Rarer still than the blue sapphire, and far lesser known due to this scarcity, Padparadscha sapphires are treasured by collectors seeking the world’s most extraordinary stones.

“The orange-pink of Padparadscha is the perfect complement to lustrous pearls and white diamonds.”
