The stones and metals that come together in Rebecca’s sculptural jewelry come from all around the world, and that in itself is a story worth sharing! One of coolest stones she came across in a recent collaboration are Montana sapphires. Their color ranges from light blue to green and are often heat treated to bring out their vibrancy. Some of the most prized are the teal blue. This engagement ring uses one with a diamond baguette for a bit of tradition.
Most Montana sapphires are larger to show off their deep beautiful color. Rebecca was able to find some smaller stones for a wedding band inspired by the Starburst Design with a chiseled surface and scattered stones. Montana sapphires are historically ethically-sourced, conflict-free and eco-friendly. That’s what we love to hear! They have a rich history, and were officially discovered in 1865 when miners realized Montana could realistically compete with other foreign countries in the selling of these precious stones. Can you imagine what it must have felt like to be one of the first people to discover one of these beauties?
There’s something very special about using gemstones retrieved in the USA! It gives us great joy when a client decides to use one of these incredible sapphires. Each stone tells a specific story - what do you want yours to say? Tell us more!
