This beautiful heated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous rich blue with a hint of green, reminiscent of the feathers of the peacock. 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 minor inclusions that are visible to the naked eye, but they are not objectionable and are much less noticeable in person than the macro photo here would imply. The inclusions have been factored into the price, making this gem a great value for the size and color. Sapphires over three carats from Montana are quite rare, especially in such a rich blue 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 3.06 carats and measures 9.4 mm x 7.6 mm x 5.7 mm; the perfect size for an engagement ring.
