I have 2 similar sapphires available as shown in the last 2 images. Please select your stone choice from the drop down menu.
Weight: 1.26ct & 1.3ct
Shape: cushion cut
Clarity: Eye Clean -at arms length, small inclusions at close up and under magnification
Origin: Malawi, Fair Trade
The one shown in the ring mounting has a gorgeous soft warm green color with only a few faint inclusions. The few faint small inclusions can be seen under magnifications but are not noticeable at arm's length when the ring is worn at the finger. The faceted Sapphire is about 1.26 carat, 6 x 6 mm square. It's the sapphire shown in all ring photos, the stone on the right in image #7 and on the left in image #8 (last image).
The second sapphire has a cooler green shade and more needle like rutile inclusions. Due to the inclusions it's a bit less expensive than the other one. Still the inclusions are not noticeable when the ring is worn. It just gives it a bit more speckle. The sapphire is about 1.3 carat, 6 x 6 mm square. It's the sapphire shown on the left in image #7 and on the right in image #8 (last image).
The top of both sapphires has a checkerboard facet design.The sapphires were mined in Malawi and are Fair Trade level 1 stone. Like most available sapphires the gemstones have been heated to enhance it's color. Both are very lively stone with excellent cutting.
The sapphire is sourced from Columbia Gem House, a true pioneer in the fair trade gem marketplace. Fair Trade Gems are closely tracked from mine to market to ensure that every gem has been handled according to these strict protocols. Using ethically sources gemstones with recycled metals makes this an Eco-conscious engagement ring.
