Besides the odd one that might be a quest reward, those types of items are random for the most part.

You could try to find a big mine or lots of ore deposits and mine it. It's random, but is a hell of a lot better than hoping for them to spawn in boss chests.

Just go onto UESP, it's all there

 

I think there's one in the temple of dilbella in Morthal. If you mine long enough you'll find them though

TC,

You can finish every other part of that quest first and come back to the Flawless Sapphires later.

I picked up those quests at level 6 or so and just last night found the second flawless sapphire (at level 47).

I also have had the better loot perks in lockpicking for a long time and I found 2 flawless diamonds as loot before 2 flawless sapphires.

Thanks I'll check Morthal. All the UESP says is the obvious "Gems are mined from ore veins in Mines and found as treasure in chests and on monsters." I've cleared out all the mines I know of and only got one of two I need. I've got a kettle in my whiterun house full of miscellaneous gems so next time i get a quest requiring gems I have some to fall back on. The odds are just not working out in my favor.

Pickpocket it. I have found a couple of "flawless" gems on people. Otherwise its a crapshoot with mining ore. I find the better the ore ie gold, nets you better quality gems.

you find significantly more gems of all types if you finish No Stones Unturned quest

now i'm finding flawless sapphires everywhere.

the reward for the flawless sapphires quest sucks btw.
