This beautiful heated Madagascar sapphire is a gorgeous pink. The color was developed by heating the gem, but no other treatments were made to the gem. The treatment is permanent and stable and not only develops the color, but also improves the clarity. The sapphire has excellent clarity, making it bright and scintillating in the hand. There may be tiny inclusions that are visible with a 10x loupe that can’t be seen with the naked eye.
This sapphire is faceted in a custom Asscher-style square design, optimized for sapphire and cut to high precision; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 1.17 carats and measures 5.8 x 3.7 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring!
