This pretty little unheated Montana sapphire is classic color for these gems–a lovely light blue-green color, similar to a gem aquamarine. This particular sapphire is very clean, with just a tiny bit of natural rutile “silk,” only visible with a 10x loupe. In the hand this gem is beautiful–its bright and lively.
This sapphire has been faceted in my own modified version of the diamond round brilliant cut, one that I’ve specifically optimized for sapphire to produce the desired “hearts and arrows” effect. The result is a scintillating gem, perfect for an engagement ring. It weighs 0.64 carats and measures 5.1 x 3.2 mm.
