Traditional Three-Stone Ring with Ocean Vibes
Whether worn as an engagement ring or right hand ring, this precious piece will make you smile. Feminine and fun 14k rose gold beautifully contrasts and accentuates three American-mined sapphires from Montana in a secure prong setting.
These sapphires were custom cut for me by a gem cutter in the U.S., and the two side stones were matched for color and size right from the rough stone to the finished polished gemstones you see here. The center stone is a unique antique style old european cut for some added character, making this ring unlike anything you'd find in a department store. Like most sapphires on the market, these stones have been lightly heated for color and clarity, a permanent treatment.
The center more saturated deep blue sapphire measures about 5.4mm in diameter and is 0.60ct. The lighter teal-green side stones are 4.3mm wide. These stones are ethically sourced, mined in Montana, USA and cut in the USA by an American gem cutter. These sapphires are eye-clean, with beautiful life and sparkle to them.
The band is a flat/square band with a smooth comfortable polish and measures 2.1mm.
This ring is currently a size 7 and is fully resizable for a small fee. Please note, this item is non-refundable after it has been resized. Please allow one week 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.
