A purple sapphire brings out the shine

In memory of the American singer Prince, the Pantone Color Institute has developed the new colour ‘Love Symbol #2’. With this lush purple tone, the institute posthumously honours the artist who achieved one of his greatest hits with ‘Purple Rain’ in 1984. Since then, violet has been inseparably associated with the musician, glamourous and passionate as he was. “The color purple was synonymous with who Prince was and will always be”, said Troy Carter, entertainment adviser to Prince’ estate.

Come visit Constantin Wild at INTERGEM in Idar-Oberstein 30. Sept. – 03. Oct. Hall 1 Stand 101 

Fans of this unforgettable musician can now rejoice: the gemstone purple sapphire brings out the shine in this new Pantone hue in an impressive way. Having said that, anyone wishing to acquire one is going to have to dig fairly deep into his pocket, as this stone – just like the pop legend of whom it reminds us – is a genuine rarity.

Sapphires are regarded as exquisite gemstones with many colour variants from sky blue to deep dark blue. The purple sapphire is a particularly rare variety. Many people have never even heard of this stone. Each purple sapphire is unique and much coveted, not only among collectors.

More than just red and blue: fancy sapphires

Rubies and sapphires are amongst the world’s most precious gemstones. Their fiery reds and radiant blues are unmistakable. Less well known are the facts that both these stones are members of the corundum family, and that this family has much more to offer than just red and blue.

The corundum family, in fact, has everything you could want in a valuable gemstone: gorgeous colours, great brilliance, and an excellent hardness of 9 on the Mohs scale, putting it right behind the diamond – our hardest natural mineral – and that means it has excellent wearing properties. Its refraction is unusually high too, as evidenced by the wonderful brilliance of perfectly cut specimens. Experienced cutters know that the colour looks markedly more intense when the stone is viewed from one angle than it does when viewed from another.

SPARKLING GEMSTONES FOR THE AUTUMN SEASON

Dear gemstone lovers,

two stones that could not be more different: a fresh, apple green chrome tourmaline that has a calming effect on the senses, and a radiant orange sapphire pulsating with energy. Yet they have one thing in common: they are both top-class stones – and I will be presenting both at the September Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair and the INTERGEM fair in Idar-Oberstein in October.

Chrome Tourmaline: like some delicate spring growth

Those in the know are aware that the chrome tourmaline is an extremely rare variety of the green tourmaline. A fresh, radiant apple green, for which it has the perfect interplay of traces of chromium and vanadium to thank, is the trademark of this exquisite stone from Tanzania. As the chrome tourmaline has become a rarity, I am especially glad to be able to offer a really prime specimen of more than 30 carats. This radiant wunderkind measures some 25 by 18 millimetres, and its vivacious, natural green has been brought out to perfection by the precise star cut.

Colour trends for the spring of 2014

Dear gemstone lovers,

Blue,  violet or orange. Just three of the colours that are set to conquer the market in the spring of 2014 …

A glance into my treasure chamber shows that spring is welcome! I’ve picked out a few ‘items’ which will go really well with the first sunbeams of the year.

Turquoise, green and blue tones continue to be very much en vogue for the season ahead. And here’s a gem that fits the bill exactly: a sea-blue Paraiba tourmaline.

Anyone who likes yellow, red and orange is going to have a good year. A yellow sapphire and an orange imperial topaz are just the ticket.

Shocking pink, purple and lilac set pulses racing. As do this shocking pink ruby and this extravagant, multi-coloured imperial topaz.
