The name Padparadscha has it’s origin in the Sinhalese language and can be translated into “Lotus Flower”. The association comes from the distinctive color of the Lotus Flower, which ranges from orange to pink. Originally, only stones from Sri Lanka with this particular color trade (such as this example) have been called Padparadsha. Needles to say, given the quality of Padparadsha’s from Sri Lanka, they still hold a premium for their beauty.
