This superb unheated Montana sapphire is lovely sky blue color, reminiscent of the color of the “big skies” of Montana. This sapphire has remarkable clarity, appearing flawless under a 10x loupe. I rarely get natural unheated sapphires with this level of clarity, and it makes it remarkably brilliant and scintillating in the hand.
This sapphire is faceted in a modified version of the classic diamond round brilliant design that is optimized for sapphire and cut to “hearts and arrows” precision; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 1.65 carats and measures 7.0 x 4.6 mm; the perfect size for an engagement ring.
