This lovely heated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous combination of a deep rich blue and gold; as you hold the gem you see flashes of gold and green on the blue body color. Multicolored sapphires like this are called particolored in the gem trade. 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 some feather inclusions that are just barely visible to the naked eye if you look closely for them; at normal viewing distance they are not visible. The inclusions have been factored into the price, making this a great value for the size and color.
This sapphire is faceted in our custom “Serendipity” brilliant oval design, created and optimized for sapphire; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 1.62 carats and measures 7.6 mm x 6.1 mm x 4.6 mm; the perfect size for an engagement ring.
