This beautiful heated Montana sapphire is an amazing bright orange color, reminding me of a beautiful sunset. 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. There is a small feather visible in the macro photo, but it’s difficult to see in the hand without a loupe. I have factored it into the pricing, making this an excellent value for the size and rarity of the color.
This sapphire is faceted in my custom “Helena” oval brilliant design that has been optimized for sapphire; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 2.17 carats and measures 8.2 x 6.9 x 5.0 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring!
