Royal Blue Sapphire Price

The prices of natural Royal blue sapphires vary steeply even within the same variety because of several quality factors. Origin, Color, Clarity, Cut and Uniqueness, collectively influence the per carat price of royal blue sapphire

Note: In India, Royal blue sapphire price per carat can range ₹ 3 lakh per carat ($4675 approx.) and goes up to ₹ 10 lakh per carat ($15500 approx.) and even above. The price of Royal blue sapphire in UK, United States and Dubai may vary greatly.

  • Origin

    – Due to extreme rarity, Kashmir Royal blue sapphire pricing remains the highest and can even exceed ₹ 15 lakh per carat ($23370 approx.) and goes up to ₹ 50 lakh per carat ($77900 approx.) and even above. The availability of top quality Royal Blue Sapphire Burma is also less, hence, they are mostly pricier than Sri Lankan royal blue sapphire.

  • Color

    – A deeply saturated, vivid Royal blue sapphire is a rare and highly desirable sapphire color that draws exorbitant pricing. Generally, an over-dark Midnight blue sapphire value remains comparatively less than the value of Royal blue sapphire.

  • Clarity

    – Blues sapphire typically bears some common inclusions (feathers, fingerprints and small crystals). Hence, eye clean pieces (minimum or no eye visible) are considered rare and usually cost a premium. Highly included, too opaque and excessive dark royal blue sapphires are available at cheaper prices.

  • Cut

    – The way a Royal blue sapphire is faceted can contribute around 10 to 20% to its overall cost. A skilfully faceted Sapphire is excellently enhanced but incurs significant stone wastage as well. For the same quality, a faceted Royal blue sapphire cost is higher than cabochon (non-faceted, polished stone).

  • Carat weight

    – Good quality, large size Royal blue sapphire is hard to find in nature. Therefore, the price of Royal blue sapphire per carat rises significantly when size increases by few carats, hand in hand with the quality.
