This lovely unheated sapphire comes from Umba, Tanzania, and is a striking intense yellow. The gem is 100 percent natural and untreated in any way. This sapphire has very small inclusions that are quite difficult to see with the naked eye from a normal viewing distance. It looks better in person than the photo would imply.
This gem is faceted in our custom “Helena” brilliant oval design, created and optimized for sapphires; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. It weighs 1.38 carats and measures 7.0 x 5.9 mm, the perfect size for an engagement ring.
