At Navratan, our collection of in-house gems come from a range of origins offering a plethora of choices to pick from.
    • Color: To achieve maximum value from an original blue sapphire stone, its perfect hue should feature an even, velvety blue body flecked with violet undertones and saturation intensity that complements them both perfectly. Such stones are highly prized; gems with darker tones or near black interiors tend to have lower estimated values.
    • Clarity: Tiny needle-like inclusions or silk can add depth and velvety charm to the velvety surface of natural blue sapphire gems, increasing their desirability in terms of desirability and velvety appearance. Top quality gems with no visible fingerprints or color zoneing tend to be eye-clean gems which make them highly desired gems on the market.
