Alexandrite & Diamond Victorian Ring
Discovered in Ural Mountains of Russia in 1834 and named after the sitting Czar Alexander II, Alexandrite is a rare type of an exotic colored gem. The very scarce stone possess the unique quality of changing its color dependent upon the type of light in which it is viewed.
Here we see a Victorian 14k rose gold ring. Set with an oval and faceted pair of natural alexandrites each an estimated .10 carats with a color shift from teal blue to blue with purple and with more purplish red areas depending on the type of light. The rare gems are joined by a linear series of four (4) old mine cut diamonds of about .20 carats. The gems form a lozenge shape configuration on the matrix of the ring and create a lovely color contrast. Although petite in scale the ring has a dramatic presence on the hand.
