This lovely unheated Montana sapphire is light blue-green color, a classic color for the Montana gems. There are a few tiny inclusions that are only visible face-up with a 10x loupe and a minor amount of very fine rutile silk in the gem. The silk just barely softens the brilliance of the gem and gives it a beautiful glow. I have factored the inclusions into the price, making the gem a great value for the size.
This sapphire is faceted in a modified version of the classic diamond round brilliant design that is optimized for sapphire and cut to “hearts and arrows” precision; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 1.29 carats and measures 6.4 x 4.3 mm; the perfect size for an engagement ring.
