This beautiful unheated sapphire is a gorgeous rich magenta-pink color, a rare color for Montana sapphire. The gem has good clarity, with a few tiny inclusions that are far more prominent in the photo than they appear in the hand. In the hand, it would be difficult to see any of these inclusions. The gem has very good brilliance and it’s quite bright and flashy in the hand, much more so than the photo would imply.
This sapphire is faceted in the classic diamond round brilliant design, optimized for sapphire and cut to “hearts and arrows” precision. It weighs 0.88 carats and measures 5.7 x 3.7 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a beautiful engagement ring!
