I have wanted a Montana sapphire for years. I decided to sell my diamond engagement ring to help offset the cost of starting my new project. I must say, I don't miss having a diamond for one second. I knew that no matter what Montana sapphire I picked, I wanted Caysie from CvB Design to do my ring. Her meticulous attention to detail is unlike anything else.

I learned along the way that shopping for a Montana is extremely difficult, they are a finicky variety. I ordered one from Gemfix but I did not like it in hand, their customer service was excellent though. I had my eye on one from Missouri River Sapphire Company but I wasn't sure about the color. The photos showed a silvery sage green and I just wasn't sure but the cut was spectacular. I decided to take a chance and purchase this since the return policy was good. I'm thankful I purchased it, the cut is phenomenal.

Stats:
2.65 Unheated Montana Sapphire
8.58 x 6.81 x 4.8 mm
Extremely clean
Original rough was 7 carats and was cut by Dan O'Neil

I will attach some vendor pictures. rough7ct.jpg 2.6ct.jpg mymontana1.jpg mymontana2.jpg

I reached out to Caysie at CvB and she was incredible to work with. Excellent communication back and forth and hit the nail on the head with what I wanted for my ring. It took about 4 weeks from start to finish.

Stats for the ring:
Size 4.75
Unplatted 18k white gold with a soft brush finish
2- Custom french cuts

I can't say enough good things about Missouri River Sapphire Company and CvB Design. Both made everything so easy and I could not be more happy with my ring. It's the most beautiful ring I've ever seen in real life.

My own photos. This sapphire always looks different, I love it though. IMG_20200703_103713.jpg IMG_20200703_103800.jpg IMG_20200703_104607.jpg IMG_20200703_104618.jpg IMG_20200704_180956.jpg IMG_20200704_180944.jpg

That's a beautiful stone and ring. That's one of my favorite settings she has for rectangular stones too. Beautiful result!

Lovely! Unlike with a diamond, you will never grow tired of looking at the color changes in different lights and environments!

Vendor IG pic was a little over-the-top ;)2

Welcome to the wonderful world of colored gems (careful, its addictive). Your new ring is absolutely gorgeous and I love the color of your Montana sapphire. Add in the CvB setting and this baby is a work of art. :love:

I’d love to see more pics.

Thank you, I was very adamant about that bezel and the compass prongs.

I really liked her IG photo, much better quality than the pictures I can take, which is why I posted it.

It's not better quality than yours -- it has a bit of a make-believe quality is what it has. Oversaturated skin tones -- and look at the nail gel and the green of the vegetation..

Beautiful ring. All the detailing by Caysie is incredible and the color of your stone is sublime. I especially love the cut and orientation you chose for your stone! I am always interested in hearing stories of those who forgo their diamond ER in favor of a colored stone =)2
