The term padparadscha is derived from the Singhalese word for a salmon colored lotus blossom.
Padparadscha sapphires are prized for their pinkish-orange hue. We recently had the pleasure of setting this beauty in our upright prong tension-setting. We love the warm pink against the cool grey of the stainless. This setting provided a perfect backdrop for this gorgeously faceted gemstone.
