This beautiful unheated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous aquamarine blue color and also shows some zoning to the color, with a zone of brighter blue visible in the gem. It has a moderate amount of rutile silk that slightly softens the brilliance of the gem but also gives a nice glow. I have factored that into the pricing, making this a great value.
This sapphire is faceted in my modified version of the diamond round brilliant cut, optimized for sapphire and cut to “hearts and arrows” level of precision; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 1.42 carats and measures 6.7 x 4.4 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
