About the Sapphire:
This ring features a central bi-color Montana Sapphire that displays two tones of blue. The Sapphire was cut by renowned gemstone artist John Dyer. Dyer is a master gem cutter who is celebrated for his artistic ability. He is the recipient of over 50 elite gem-cutting awards, including a multi time winner of the AGTA Spectrum Awards.
Every John Dyer gemstone is a unique work of art. John Dyer studies each piece of gemstone rough individually to determine the best way to maximize the gem's beauty and brilliance. He releases the hidden allure of each gem through innovative, proprietary cutting styles.
Montana, known as the Treasure State, is rich in many mineral and gemstone sources, including sapphires. Gem-quality sapphires were first found in Montana in 1865 by gold rush prospectors who found the gems in gravel along the Missouri River. These gems came in a wide variety of fancy colors, including a range of blues and greens, purples, lavenders, pinks, yellow, and a host of other hues. With a hardness of 9 on the Mohs scale, only diamonds and other sapphires can scratch a sapphire. This along with the beautiful hues make it one of the most durable gemstones to use in everyday jewelry. Montana Sapphires are guaranteed to be sourced under safe working conditions using environmentally responsible principles.
