Pricing of yellow Sapphire depends on its Color, Transparency, Luster and Cutting style. A Good Quality Yellow Sapphire should have prominent Yellow Color, fair transparency to allow light to pass through. A Good quality yellow sapphire should not look dull, it should have luster (shine) on its surface. Yellow Sapphire should be cut symmetrically in Oval, Rectangular, Cushion or Round shape. The most desirable shapes are Oval and Cushion. The Pricing depends a lot on the density of Inclusions and Type of inclusions. All natural gemstones have inclusions. But Less inclusions means better transparency, hence less included gemstones command higher prices. The Nature of inclusions also holds importance. Presence of Black spots, Knots or cracks brings down the rate of Gemstones. It is so, because these kinds of inclusions are considered negative as per astrology. On the other hand, It also affects the appearance of the gemstone. As per current market trend in India, The Gem-quality Yellow Sapphire Gemstone Price should start at ₹ 5,000 ($ 67.23) per carat.
