This beautiful heated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous medium blue, bringing to mind the tropical waters of the Mediterranean Sea. The color was developed by heating the gem in Montana, 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 undissolved rutile silk that softens the brilliance, giving it a hazy glow. This sapphire has slight inclusions that are just barely visible to the naked eye. The inclusions have been factored into the price, making this a great value for the size and color.
This sapphire is faceted in a classic square princess design that is optimized for sapphire and cut to high precision; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. It weighs 1.49 carats and measures 5.7 x 4.5 mm; the perfect size for an engagement ring.
