Yellow Sapphire With Conflicting Reports
I inadvertently created a controversy with this yellow sapphire. I bought it when I was with my friend Terry in Bangkok. We went to see a long-time friend of his named Khong, from Cambodia. Khong managed to escape the killing fields and settle in Bangkok. He had a beautiful house and many beautiful stones of high quality. I loved this yellow sapphire for its transparency, color and size. Just perfect for a piece of jewelry or to simply keep in a collection. Khong guaranteed that it was not heated and he even produce a GIT report saying so. I bought the stone and brought to NYC, but for some reason I send the stone to GIA for another report, and to my surprise the sapphire came as “heated”. What to do? just accept that this sapphire is probably heated or probably not heated. The only guarantee I can give you is the it is absolutely beautiful. And I must give Khong some credits because the other stones I bought from him he described exactly like the GIA reports.
