This gorgeous heated Montana sapphire is an unusual rich brownish-orange color, similar to the color of whisky or bourbon. The sapphire was heated in Montana to develop the color and improve the clarity; the treatment is permanent and stable. This gem has outstanding clarity, with no inclusions visible, even with a 10x loupe. The high clarity makes this gem very bright and scintillating in the hand.
This sapphire is faceted in the classic diamond round brilliant design that has been specifically optimized for sapphire and cut to “hearts and arrows” precision; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 1.72 carats and measures 7.2 x 4.6 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
