This gorgeous heated Montana sapphire is a rich medium blue that reminds me of the Mediterranean Ocean. The sapphire is scintillating in the hand, with excellent clarity; there are a few tiny inclusions too small to see without a 10x loupe.
This sapphire is faceted in my custom “Testudo” brilliant oval design. The gem weighs 1.56 carats and measures 7.6 x 5.7 x 4.6 mm. It would make a beautiful center stone for an engagement ring.
