Britain was one of the few countries to pick up on the fervor of the fantastically shimmering chrysoberyl gemstone, so loved (and discovered) by the Portuguese in Minas Gerais in Brazil.
A generous sized, faceted oval chrysoberyl (formerly also known as chrysolite) in pale lemony-lime yellow hues, it is 5.4 carats of radiance that really pops with color and brilliance.
It is placed in 10k rose gold setting with "U" shaped arches to hold it. Tapering down from the sides. the gold has been worn and loved and is as soft as silk.
