Sri Lankan origin is considered to be the best and most expensive because of outstanding clarity and colour consistency, and it may cost between ₹ 15,000 and ₹ 30,000, while the Thailand or Bangkok yellow sapphires are more economical costing up to ₹ 5,000.
Clarity – Yellow Sapphire, in its best quality is absolutely clear for the naked eye.
Colour – It comes in all shades of yellow, ranging from bright yellow or lemon yellow sapphire with good colour consistency is more valuable than the ones carrying tint of green, gold or orange.
Carat Weight –When looking at the ‘rarity’ aspect of precious gemstones, size becomes an extended attribute with a direct influence on prices. However, the increase in size also heightens the chances of natural contamination, which is why Pukhraj price per carat increases drastically for cleaner, bigger pieces.
Price of this stone depends on its origin, colour, clarity, weight and treatment. All of these parameters are collectively looked into before calculating Pukhraj prices that cover a broad range from ₹ 2500 to ₹ 40000.
Cut – The way a stone is cut doesn’t just enhance its appearance but can cleverly conceal the inclusions as well. Moreover, stone wastage incurred in the processing of a gemstone gets reflected in its increased prices. Therefore, a faceted cut yellow sapphire costs more than round or oval ones.
Treatment – Artificial heat or colour treatment is done to inflate the market value of low-quality pieces. Untreated, unheated yellow sapphire is more valuable than synthetic, glass filled or lab created pieces. It is better to buy certified Pukhraj whether online or from a dealer.

Bangkok yellow sapphires offer better color tone and quality in the affordable range. Bangkok yellow sapphires are widely accepted these days as they are considered equally beneficial astrologically and are superior in the overall look. These Bangkok sapphires have slight treatments for enhancing their quality. The treatments can range from first degree to severe treatment level.
