Pink Sapphire has become a favorite in jewelry, especially Engagement rings, because it is available in so many shades, ranging from light pink to hot pink and purplish pink. Pink is actually one of the rarest colors in sapphire. This is not surprising, since ruby is much rarer than sapphire, and ruby and sapphire are the same material (corundum). Like ruby, Pink Sapphire tends to have significant inclusions. So eye clean stones are quite valuable and large specimens are sought after by collectors and investors.
Pink sapphires over 1 carat are rare, and a pink sapphire over 4 carats counts as extremely rare. The prices and value of pink sapphire vary depending on the size, quality and treatment of the individual gemstone. Most pink sapphires have been heat treated to improve the color and clarity. All the different shades of Pink and violet are valuable in clean and well cut stones, but highly saturated and bright colors will be the most valuable.
