Deciphering Sapphire Color Grading 

Cornflower sapphires are prized for their pure, clear blue hue, which is relatively rare among sapphires. Sapphires can have various colors due to trace elements, but cornflower blue sapphires have minimal presence of elements that cause green or purple undertones, resulting in a true blue color. The enchanting hue of a cornflower blue sapphire is characterized by its delicate blend of blue and violet tones.

Balancing Sapphire Carat Weight 

When we think of gemstones, especially colored gemstones, the general consensus is the bigger, the better. Well, not quite. The concept of carat weight is a little more nuanced than most people think. The size and subsequently the visual impact is dependent on the carat weight of the sapphire. The perfect balance has to be struck between the size and quality by factoring in your tastes and your budget when selecting the carat of your cornflower blue sapphire. You also have to bear in mind that bigger stones may fetch a higher price so it is basically up to you the buyer to weigh your options properly to find the perfect balance for your ring needs. Combined with top marks in clarity, color and cut, the cornflower sapphire will most-likely be heirloom/investment-grade.
