One 14k white gold, alexandrite and diamond pendant. 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. This gorgeous 6.60 – 5.55mm, 1.15ct., oval shaped and faceted alexandrite faces up with “medium tone of strong, slightly bluish green colour” in the daylight, with the colour changing to “purplish red” in incandescent light. The interior of the stone boasts moderate inclusions, adding to the uniqueness, while showcasing a beautiful shimmer from the good quality cut. Adorning the bail attached to the alexandrite’s setting are a total of four, 2.1 – 2.2mm, round brilliant cut diamonds with an approximate total weight of 0.15ct. These round stunners present with qualities gauged by SI-2 to I-1 clarity, K-L colour, and medium to good cut. This dainty piece weighs 0.9 grams and would best suit an equally petite chain. Certificate of appraisal provided by Gem Grade Appraisal Service, located in Toronto, with a “suggested insurance coverage” of $8,000.00.
