Hexagonal Montana Sapphire

Hexagonal Montana sapphire. (CS8661)

Montana Sapphire!


Cool blue with a subtle hint of blued steel.  The color of this Montana sapphire brings to mind the evening sky on a cold winter's day.  Or, perhaps, we should say "Big Sky on a cold winter's day."  After all, this exceptional sapphire is from Montana!

The sapphire is beautifully cut with a hexagonal shape and step-cut faceting on both the crown and the pavilion.  The precise faceting creates a wonderful play of light and color that dances as the angle of the gemstone shifts.  The jazzy sophistication and alluring color of this gem suggests a ring or pendant inspired by the Art Deco period or, perhaps, a design with the stark lines of Mid Century Modern.

Perhaps something like the above custom ring with its clean platinum lines and baguette diamonds along the sides.  The shape of the bezel could be adapted to fit the hexagonal shape of the Montana sapphire.  To discuss possible custom designs,  please give us a call (603 624-8672) or send us an email.

Cost: Although this striking gemstone has sold,  we can help you acquire a similar gem.  Please inquire.

Color: Blue with a subtle hint of gray.

Cut: Hexagonal cut with step-cut faceting.  The sapphire measures 7.25 millimeters in diameter (point-to-point) and is 4.29 millimeters in depth.

Gemstone Note: It is common practice for sapphires to be heated to high temperatures during cutting to improve their color and appearance.  You should assume that all sapphires have been heat treated unless the seller specifically guarantees otherwise.  We believe this sapphire has been heat treated.


Below are several custom jewels we have created that would be a good home for this striking gemstone.  Of course the options are only limited by your imagination.
