One lady’s 18k white gold, alexandrite and diamond ring. Item is trademarked and the condition is new.
Often described by gem aficionados as “emerald by day, ruby by night,” alexandrite is the very rare colour-changing gem mineral that is part of the chrysoberyl family. Alexandrite’s are one of the rarest gemstones, normally found in small quantities when mined with limited production, making them also one of the most expensive gems. Their rarity and exquisite disposition make this ring truly one of a kind.
Held within claws of 18k white gold, sits an incredible 4.83ct. rectangular antique cushion shaped, faceted alexandrite. This impressive stone measures approximately 11.30 – 8.15 x 5.50mm., allowing the spready table of the stone to show off the tantalizing shifts of earthy green, yellow, purple and brown hues, by gauge of “medium tone of strong, strong yellowish green colour (daylight) and moderately strong colour change to slightly brownish purple colour”, featuring moderate inclusions and a good cut.
The alexandrite sits boldly atop of backdrop of stark white, twinkling round brilliant cut and baguette cut diamonds.
Six round brilliant cuts, which measure approximately 2.6mm to 2.3mm., with an approximate total weight of 0.36ct. are graded with SI clarity, F-G colour, and good cut.
Adding to the glow are forty-four baguette cut diamonds whose sole purpose is to give the alexandrite a lift. These diamonds have an approximate total weight of 1.20ct., measure approximately 1.9-1.4mm., and are by gauge of VVS to VS clarity, F-G colour, and good cut.
The entire ring weighs 8.3g and is made for the woman with a bold sensibility. This truly amazing conversation piece is currently sized at a 6.5.
