Rich with warm peachy tones, this year’s Pantone Colour of the Year is Living Coral, a vibrant colour that evokes vitality and buoyancy.
Of all the gemstones that possess this peachy hue, the Padparadscha sapphire is one of the world’s rarest. Known as lotus blossom, the gemstones feature a delicate display of both pink and orange shades. The finest of these sapphires are sourced from Sri Lanka.
This coveted gemstone was recently put in the spotlight when Jack Brooksbank proposed to Princess Eugenie with a bespoke ring featuring a stunning Padparadscha sapphire surrounded by a halo of diamonds. The ideal choice for an engagement ring, due to its level of durability, the white diamonds also enhance the enchanting orange-pink hues of the stone.
Another gemstone on the coral colour spectrum is the delicate Morganite. More suited to a cocktail ring or necklace, this pastel peachy-pink beryl is a slightly softer shade and looks perfect framed in a rose gold setting and flanked with crystal clear diamonds to enhance the pretty pink hue.
