About Pink Sapphires

Where Do Pink Sapphires Get Their Color?

These gorgeous gemstones come in a wide range of colors and hues, spanning from peachy-colored stones to bubble gum pink. The pink color comes from the presence of chromium in the gemstone – the more chromium, the darker the color. Since sapphires and rubies are both a variety of corundum, it can be difficult to differentiate a pink sapphire from a light colored ruby. Therefore, many gemstone labs threshold for the amount of chromium for a gemstone to be considered a ruby. Anything below that is considered a pink sapphire.
