A Passion for Padparadscha

For me, there’s nothing more exciting than a Royal engagement.

The stunning pink padparadscha sapphire and diamond ring presented to Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie by fiancé Jack Brooksbank gives a breathtaking burst of colour to this Royal engagement ring and got me thinking about this wonderful gemstone.

Originating in Sri Lanka (and also found in Madagascar and Tanzania) padparadscha sapphires can range in colour from orange to pink and the name padparadscha is derived from the Sinhalese word for the aquatic lotus blossom that shares these beautiful hues.

Although I’ve created many gorgeous sapphire rings for clients, I’ve never had the opportunity to design a ring for the extraordinary padparadscha variety of this gemstone – until now!

I’m delighted to have added this beautiful Pink Padparadscha Sapphire and Diamond Platinum and 18K Gold ring to my collection at and you can discover more about it here!

I’d love to know what you think about this gorgeous gemstone – so do get in touch if you’d like to see more padparadscha in my future collections.
