Yogo Sapphires are the crown jewel of the Treasure State. We are proud to specialize in significant Yogo Sapphires…at a significant discount to retailers. We have worked closely with the Yogo mine, and we keep our commissions to a minimum.
The natural color Yogo Sapphire is found only in one mine near Utica,Montana, and has been featured by fine design houses such as Tiffany & Co. for over a hundred years. Unlike nearly all other blue sapphires commercially mined in the world today, the Yogo is not heat treated or treated in any way. The only hand that enhances the beauty of a Yogo Sapphire is that of a skilled gem cutter.
The Yogo Sapphires obtained by Big Sky Gold are cut by fair-trade cutters, and the mine itself has a minimal environmental footprint.
