Trillium Teal Montana Sapphire in
Hand-Engraved Platinum Ring

Platinum engraved ring with trillium Montana sapphire.

Montana Sapphire Solitaire!

A cool teal Montana sapphire,  the elegance of platinum,  and beautiful hand engraving come together to create this striking solitaire ring.  The sapphire is trillium cut and weighs 1.04 carats.  The ring was hand crafted in platinum and each surface meticulously hand engraved to create an elegant sparkle.

The Montana sapphire is held by three sturdy platinum prongs set above the beautifully hand-engraved band.  The shoulders of the ring gently sweep upward and are slightly tapered inward,  creating a cathedral-like affect as the band rises to meet the sapphire.

The top and sides of the band,  as well as the setting,  are meticulously hand-engraved with a dramatic chevron pattern.  In the shop we call this style of engraving  "Woodstock's feet,"  because the pattern reminds us of the tracks left in the snow by Snoopy's friend.  For an additional touch of elegance,  the edges of the ring are finely milgrained.

Viewing the ring from the side,  you can see the symmetry of the design and the precision with which this hand-crafted ring was created.   Note the thickness of the band throughout its circumference and the depth and crispness of the hand-engraving.  All signs of master craftsmen who took great care and pride in their work.


Montana sapphires have long been prized for their rich variety of fancy colors.  These American beauties were first popularized during the late Victorian era (circa 1895) by the eminent gemologist George Kunz.  Mr. Kunz often collaborated with Tiffany and Company to create some of the most beautiful jewels of the Gilded Age.

A wonderful example is an Iris Corsage brooch on view at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore. This  stunning jewel  is set with 139 Montana sapphires that range in color from cornflower blue to violet.

It is common practice to heat sapphires to improve their color and appearance.  You should assume that all sapphires have been heat treated unless the seller specifically guarantees otherwise.  We believe the sapphire set in this ring has been heat treated.
