Blue Sapphire Prices

  • Blue Sapphire price per carat depends upon its Weight (carats/ratti), Treatments and Quality (Cut, Clarity and Color).
  • Natural Untreated Blue Sapphire price ranges from Rs 2000 per carat to Rs 2,00,000 per carat
  • Astrologically, Blue Sapphires above Rs 40,000 per carat don't make much sense to purchase, as those are almost collector level or rare pieces.
  • Astrologically Blue Sapphire costing in the range of Rs 21,000/ct+ are the best; your second choice should be between Rs 11,000/ct and Rs 21,000/ct; finally, Rs 5000/ct and Rs 11,000/ct. Blue Sapphires below Rs 5,000/ct should be avoided if possible.
  • Blue Sapphire prices per carat can be converted into Neelam stone price per Ratti by multiplying it by 0.9 (so, Rs 10,000/ct = Rs 9,000/ratti)
  • Blue Sapphire price in India varies also based on where you buy from. For example, Ceylon Blue Sapphire stone price in India is between Rs. 2000 per carat to Rs. 50,000 per carat depending upon quality. Neelam Stone price in Delhi is a little more competitive, and so our Online Blue Sapphire dealers. But the problem is that most gemstone dealers sell heated and treated Blue Sapphires thereby not making you get your money's worth.

Therefore, when you buy Blue Sapphire Online, ensure that you get a Lab Certificate of its authenticity from a Reputed Lab and that the dealer is ready to get the gemstone certified from any reputed lab of your choice (careful: there are fake labs as well!).
The seller should also have a clear refund policy and hopefully, a large presence (larger organizations are likely to be more careful about their brand and stay away from unethical practices).
