These beautiful earrings are made with sapphires from the famed Rock Creek deposit near Philipsburg, Montana. The sapphires have been heated here in the US to improve their clarity and color, but no other treatments have been used. The sapphires are mined from alluvial deposits along Rock Creek and then heated in Montana. Only a small fraction of the sapphires from Montana are this beautiful rich orange color; finding a matched pair suitable for earrings is a unique challenge.
The sapphires measure 4.5 mm in diameter and weigh approximately 0.90 carats in combined total. They are set in 14k yellow gold basket stud mounts and ship in a gift box.
