The Kashmiri gem deposit was discovered in 1881 after a landslide in the Zaska Mountains in the Himalayas. Due to the perpetual snow, harsh weather, and volatile political situation caused by extreme altitude, the deposit was only intermittently mined between 1881 and 1887, and the production of raw ore was minimal. It was mined out in the 1920s, and new deposits have not been discovered since. For this reason, the Kashmiri sapphire is still available in very small quantities today, and its high quality not only sets the standard for all sapphires, it has become almost a myth.
This pair of Kashmiri sapphires designed by baoshilong, with rich and soft color, are rare treasures in nature. The classic and meaningful design endows them with more beautiful and moving appearance. The biggest highlight of this auction is that it is certified by world authoritative quality inspection institutions SSEF and AGL that its origin is Kashmir, which is extremely difficult to find, In recent decades, the price of Kashmir sapphire has doubled continuously, and it has frequently set super high auction records, and it is still rising.
