Comment: Pastel-colored padparadscha with an XXL serving of glitter and luster. It is that exceptional brilliancy which contrasts this padparadscha in the hand-shot below. Lightly toned pads, while eye-catching when set in gold, easily melt in handshots but not so here: This gem shines even between ringsize-12 fingers clear and visible from several meters distance. Its GRS report (more images) attests it as pastel 'pinkish orange', meaning orange is the primary color with a strong secondary pink, without color zoning, and in a bright tone. BTW, pink-on-orange is the less frequent type of true Ceylon padparadscha; individual preferences differ, contested as questions of taste, to which I have no opinion since I like both. What is most important to me in this case is the adamantine crystal sparkling in even the lowest light setting. While cut slightly off-center to safe precious weight, the precise, well positioned and numerous facets manage to close a hint of a window even within our strict grading standards. Here, again, it is the remarkable brilliancy that helps a long way to turn the gem into a consistently saturated ball of early sunset fire. Inclusions, soft veils and a few spots are visible only under the lens. GRS-Report with origin 'Sri Lanka', 'no heat' and 'padparadscha' supply official value protection for generations.
