Vivid Teal Blue Sapphire Ring in Organic Hand Carved Setting
Our signature "Carved Bark Band" takes on a solitaire form in this handmade 18k rose gold sapphire engagement ring, made from 100% recycled gold.
Nestled between four prongs is a teal blue Montana sapphire. The sapphire is naturally earth-mined and lightly heated for color and clarity.
This sapphire measures 5.75mm across and weighs 0.91ct. The stone is ethically sourced, mined in Montana, USA and cut in the USA by an American gem cutter. He cut it in an Old European style, a style of cutting made popular in the 1800's. This sapphire is eye-clean clarity. There is a natural indentation in the crystal on the side of the stone (girdle) which you can only see when viewed from the side, not from the top.
The band is just a little under 2mm in width and is fully rounded for comfort. You will only find this ring here! It is our signature carved style.
This ring is currently a size 5.5 and is resizable for a small fee. Please note, this item is non-refundable after it has been resized. Please allow 1-2 weeks for resizing.
Please include an address at checkout where someone will be available to sign for the package via FedEx or UPS Express. If being sent to a business location, please provide the business name. International buyers are liable for paying customs/taxes/duties.
About Montana Sapphire:
Sapphire is the birthstone for September. It is also a traditional gift for those celebrating 5th or 45th anniversaries. Sapphires are often associated with loyalty and dignity and are a favorite gemstone for royalty.
Most natural sapphires undergo heat treatment to improve their color and clarity. This industry-accepted practice results in a permanent enhancement and helps protect against accidental chipping or breakage.
Montana sapphires are mined in the state of Montana, USA. They were discovered in Montana in the late 1800's by a gold miner working on one of the gravel bars on the Missouri River near Helena. Some would consider these stones a more eco-friendly option because today's popular mining operations make efforts to restore the land after mining, replacing soil and seeding with native grasses.
Montana sapphires are recognized for their extraordinary blue-green tones, often lighter in color. They also may have a silver tint to them which you don't often find. Sizes in over 6mm are also becoming much more difficult to source.

Making a Difference:
Help fight climate change with this purchase! Trees are like the lungs of the planet...our "natural air purifiers." They breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen. Additionally, they provide habitat for birds and other wildlife and play a vital role in our natural water cycle. Forests help regulate the water in the air through a process called transpiration. They absorb thousands of gallons of water into their roots. Excess water is then released through the leaves back into the air. For every purchase made, I donate one planted tree through Plant-It 2020. Small changes by individuals can make a difference in the fight against climate change. You will be reminded of your efforts each time you look down at your beautiful gold bark band.
