This beautiful unheated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous bright blue color, with just a faint touch of green to the blue. I call these sapphires “Peacock Blue” as the color is reminiscent of the feathers of a peacock. There is a small feather in the corner of the gem, but it is not visible without a loupe and will be hidden under a prong when the gem is set. There is a very light amount of natural rutile silk in this sapphire (proof of its natural unheated status) but its only visible at certain angles and it doesn’t effect the brilliance of the gem in any way.
This sapphire is faceted in my custom “Bella” brilliant square cushion design that I’ve created and optimized for sapphire; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 2.40 carats and measures 7.0 x 4.8 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
