As other gemstones sapphire quality is based on first the basics of color, clarity, cut, weight, brilliance etc.
Clarity is the primary parameter to judge a gemstone's quality. Blue sapphires usually comes with acceptable fine silk, foreign inclusions, color bands etc. A fully transparent sapphire with minimum inclusions and crystalline appearance in a good size are rarest and will be choice of anyone thus fetch high costs naturally. Note- any big cloud patch or inclusion in center and top of the table will make the stone a rejection.
Color determines the quality of any sapphire and purest color with no secondry shade is considered top notch, like a cornflower blue sapphire is the ideal and most prestigious color which has no violet or purple appearance and are exorbitantly pricey. The intensity of color have to be medium deep in sapphires as too dark or lighter color sapphires will not look very rich ever compared to a vivid color and color saturation should be even throughout the gem and any color zoaning will descend the price respectively.
Sapphire like padparadscha is a mix of pink and orange color and are very rare and highly prices, Parti sapphires are those having two or more colors independently and are much mined in Australia; being uncommon these sapphires remained unknown having no big demands and are sold at normal prices usually.
Note - very light shade in the stone or a window stone which is catching no color in middle is cheap, even too dark blue which is blocking the light and transparency of stone comes in semi precious category.
Brilliance in sapphires: As other gems sapphires are also all about shine and luster. A sapphire which is dull and foggy will not attract the buyers and will be significantly low priced to those with full transparency and brilliance. Always ensure that any blue, yellow, pink or other sapphires you are buying is transparent and have adequate amount of shine so that it atleast can fall in category of a precious gemstone; also luster should be all over the stone; Partially cloudy stones are valued less.
Cut quality in sapphire: A gem is not a gem unless it is cut and finished from a lapidary stone. A cut with precise proportions to bring out the beauty of the sapphire is very necessary to create a value to it. The stone should have adequate hieght and table ratio which shall not to be too thin or too much in height and a skilled artist has to apply the facets profoundly so that maximum light reflects from the stone making it look shiny otherwise a poor cut stone to retain weight looks ugly and bulky and you pay more amount for same table size due to intentionally extra weight retained. A stone with an excellent or very good cut will always be demanded in top jewelry and will be valuable. Note- Calibrated size lots or matching suits always have a premium on price because manufacturing and matching same quality in same size and sahpe is rarest in sapphire.
Any sapphire if treated to enhance its color and clarity like heated or fracture filled are treated sapphires and will be significantly low in prices. Heat treatment in blue sapphire is at extent accepted as it is permanent in nature but huge difference in price is seen. Sapphires are much heated to modify and intense the color, the color zoaning is nulled by heating. A fracture filled sapphire is a very cheap stone where a opaque and rejection rough is fracture filled with glaas like materials to make them look significantly cleaner but those remains no more natural; No major lab like GIA, GRS, Lotus will certify those stones as sapphires and will just state them as a ''manufactured product'' in certification.
