This beautiful heated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous blue-green, a classic color for the Montana gems. This sapphire has been subject to traditional heat treatment in Montana to improve the color and clarity, but no other treatments have been applied. The treatment is permanent and stable. This sapphire has moderate inclusions that are visible in the hand. The inclusions are near the edge and could be hidden under prongs. I have factored the inclusions into the price, making this a great value for the size and color.
This sapphire is faceted in my custom “Testudo” brilliant oval design that I’ve created and optimized for sapphire; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 1.71 carats and measures 7.7 x 5.9 x 4.8 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
