Pink Sapphires at New York City Jewelry and Watch Show

This afternoon I went to the New York City Jewelry and Watch Show which was held at Metropolitan Pavilion which is located at 125 West 18th Street.

I went with the intention of just looking at beautiful jewelry and the experience did not disappoint.

I can’t say that all the pieces were amazing. They ranged from bling, to vintage estate type of jewelry or just knock out OMG diamond necklaces, bracelets and rings.

So here is what some great diamond bracelets looked like(not every jewelry-most did not let me photograph their pieces!) but these folks were nice.

 

These bracelets are available at

Then the bling…

Available at…

But now la piece de resistance…  This is the piece that literally took my breath away.

Unfortunately the lighting didn’t do tthe piece justice but it was completely divine and is available at Zeath Jewels Inc. .www.zeathjewels.com

What Samra Zeath told me was that it took them 15 years to collect these sapphires. When I googled Padparadscha here is what I found in Wikipedia…

Padparadscha is a delicate, light to medium toned, pink-orange to orange-pink hued corundum, originally found in Sri Lanka,[9]but also found in deposits in Vietnam and parts of East Africa. Padparadscha sapphires are rare; the rarest of all is the totally natural variety, with no sign of artificial treatment.[10]

The name is derived from the Sanskrit “padma ranga” (padma = lotus; ranga = color), a color akin to the lotus flower (Nelumbo nucifera).[11]

Natural padparadscha sapphires often draw higher prices than many of even the finest blue sapphires. Recently, more sapphires of this color have appeared on the market as a result of a new artificial treatment method called “lattice diffusion.”

All I can say is that it was instant love so the closest that this necklace was going to get to meLol was to take a photo of it (I was very thankful that they let me) and post in my blog.  Because you never know… 🙂

Here’s to beauty…where ever you may find it! 🙂 🙂
