Sapphire chinchillas are a soft gray color with pink ears and a pink nose.  They look like a light standard gray, but unlike the standard, sapphires should have no black tipping in their fur.  Sapphire chinchillas look very similar to violet chinchillas, but in good lighting sapphires should have a hint of blue to their fur, while violets will have a hint of lilac to their fur.
