Natural Violet Sapphire 8.01 Carats

  • $14,702.00
Iris Velvet. Deep, lush, with so much inner fire that this large oval jewel (more than 8 carats!) literally glows from within. For centuries, purple was the color of kings, queens and emperors. In ancient Greece and Rome, sumptuary laws dictated that common folk could not wear purple! Not that they could have afforded it: purple dye was squeezed from a sea-mollusk and at one time was the most expensive commodity on earth. You'll feel this royal legacy when you wear this majestic Violet Sapphire in a piece of high jewelry.
