Rare Multi-Colored Montana Sapphire in Hand Carved Rose Gold
My signature "Carved Bark Band" takes on a contemporary diamond halo form in this handmade rose gold sapphire engagement ring, made from 100% recycled gold.
Bezel set in solid gold is a 1.03ct multi-colored and color-shifting round Montana Sapphire. Depending on the source of light available, you'll see purples, greys, mauve, champagne, red and orange streaks in the stone. It was hard to come by, as most of our Montana sapphires in stock are blue and green!

In the setting (with the halo included), the face of this piece measures 10mm in diameter. The stone is ethically sourced, mined in Montana, USA and cut in the USA by an American gem cutter. This sapphire is eye-clean clarity- sparkly but with a little bit of shimmery silk to it which you can see best in direct sunlight. It has been through heat treatment, very common for Montana sapphires and the treatment is permanent.
The band is 1.8mm in width and is fully rounded for comfort. You will only find this ring here! It is my signature carved style.
This ring is currently a size 6.5 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.
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.
Like all sapphires, Montana Sapphires are very durable and make an excellent choice for a center stone in jewelry.

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.
