I was going to suggest a very pale alexandrite? But now from the pictures I’m really not sure 🤔 Xx

I agree with it being possibly a sapphire. Alexandrite usually has a green shift, whereas sapphire can have a light blue to purple shift.

It could be a pale rose de france amethyst, but strictly speaking that’s not a color change stone.

My alexandrite changes from green to blue to purple. Yours could ba a sapphire. If you are curious, you could send it to GIA for colored stone identification.

I agree that it could be a sapphire. I have a pink sapphire that looks more purple in natural light. You could take it into a jewerly store that has a gemmologist and they could tell you what they think it is or get an appraisal done and then you would know for certain what stone it is.
