Montana yellow sapphire ring, custom made to order. This yellow sapphire ring looks like a pot of gold! A lovely engagement ring for anyone seeking an alternative to a diamond center stone, or an everyday ring - it's unisex too! Nice woven decorative pattern on the band, and its low profile and lack of sharp edges would make it a good choice for anyone who needs their ring to stay out of their way.
The gem is a 0.85 carat, 5.6mm yellow Montana sapphire. The color is a blend of a deep orange-yellow and a bright true yellow. It's a truly gorgeous gem.
It has a couple of eye visible rutile inclusions, but they blend in with the facets, so you have to look really hard for them. In sapphires, inclusions that don't detract from the appearance of the gem are often valued, because they can help a gemologist determine that the stone is natural and even its origin. It's hard to tell if this stone was heated to enhance its clarity, so let's assume it probably was.
This gem was mined in Montana, in the USA. These special gems are collected from the gravel bars and creek beds of Montana. They are genuine, corundum sapphire and one of my best selling gems. Most Montana sapphires are light shades of blue-green-grey, with occasional pinks, yellows, whites, and deeper blues. Most of them are very small and cut gems in the 2-3mm range; large ones such as this gem are rare.
The images you see of the ring are basically CGI. They're photo-realistic renders from my CAD program and do not show the actual stone. The rings are custom made when you order and come out quite accurate to the renders, but please look closely at the photo labeled "actual gem" to see a real photograph of the stone that will be set in the ring.

YOUR RING, MADE TO ORDER
Each ring is made to order in exactly your size using a combination of a sophisticated jeweler's CAD system, modern CAM milling technology and old-school hands-on goldsmithing. With this technology you get a completely custom ring in weeks rather than the months that are standard for custom jewelry. It takes an average 3-8 weeks from the time your order is finalized.
MAKE IT YOUR OWN WITH CUSTOM RING DESIGN
You can order your ring pre-configured with the options listed above, or tweak the design to your exact specs. All it takes is a quick email to get details and pricing on custom ring design options.

Any ring, any metal. Only the most popular options are listed to the right, but with a quick email to customize you can choose from:
- 14k gold in white, yellow, rose, or green
- 18k gold in white, yellow, rose, or green
2. Pick Your Diamond:
Don’t get stuck with anything less than perfect; choose the quality, size, and shape of your diamond from the world’s largest international diamond exchange, not the lackluster selection at a jewelry store. We’ll even send you pictures and certificates of diamonds you might like so you can make a thoughtful choice in your own home. We order on demand rather than holding diamonds in inventory, giving you instant access to unlimited choice.
3. Would You Prefer a Special Gem or Birthstone?

In addition to an extensive gem inventory, we work with fair trade/direct trade gem sources worldwide. Give us a little time, and we’ll be able to get just about any gemstone you can imagine....even if we have to send a guy to the mine, have it dug up, and cut it to order. How’s that for awesome?
Got a gem without a home? Don’t let in languish, get your precious out of that dusty drawer and enjoy it every day. We’ll turn it into a custom ring you’ll love to wear.
4. What Texture Would You Like on the Metal?
If our signature mirror polish finish doesn't do it for you, pick from eight different surface textures. Hammered and satin are the most popular alternatives.
5. Engrave the Band With a Custom Message in Your Handwriting:
Get your special message engraved in one of 5 fonts, or use our handwritten engraving service to transfer your own handwriting to the inside of the ring. Make it stand out by filling the lettering with enamel - your choice of 5 colors.
6. Make the Design Perfect:
If nothing you see is quite right, and you want a ring that really sings to your heart, we can help. I’ve always had a gift for asking questions of my clients and using your answers to design the perfect piece. If you do see something you like, we can tweak any ring to suit your needs. Speaking of designs you might like....here's a whole catalog full.
7. Add Some Star Power:
Ever wonder where celebrities get those custom engraved diamonds, one-of-a-kind rare gems, and custom made engagement rings?

Caveats and Addendums*
Custom made items such as this ring cannot be returned. Please be sure of details like metal and stone choices, size, etc. before you order. Thanks for your understanding!
Ring images are photorealistic renders from my CAD system. Consider them a really amazing preview sketch! Diamonds tend to render accurately, but colored gemstones are often markedly different in appearance from the renders. Whenever possible I’ve included an example photo of the actual gem variety for a more realistic presentation. Unique designs even include a photograph of the exact gem that will be used in the ring.
