Art Deco GIA CERTIFIED 1.48ctw Natural Alexandrite & Diamond Engagement Ring in 18k White Gold
This extravagant, brightly polished 18k white gold engagement or anniversary ring sets the stage for incredible color and sophistication. An oval cut natural alexandrite sits secured in a 4-prong setting in the center, complemented by round cut alexandrites prong set on the band. Each diamond is placed in double prong settings, adding a note of luxurious detail. Alexandrite is known for its incredible color change effect, changing color when exposed to different light sources. Shimmering baguette cut diamonds are set into shiny bezel frames, giving this vintage-inspired style past, present, and future setting. Glistening round brilliant cut diamonds are prong set around the center alexandrite in a dazzling halo completing this impressive design.
This shimmering alexandrite has an incredible, magnificent luster! It is brilliant, fiery and full of life!
The unique feature of this alexandrite is a strong color change which is the main factor defining the value of this gemstone. The stone is easily changing color from green to gorgeous lavender purple, which makes it a rare collector's gem.
The color change is so STRONG that it can be easily observed not only in a candle light, but any incandescent light like any yellow low watt electric lamp's light. The alexandrite has some silk deep inside the stone. It certainly does not affect durability and magnificent luster of the stone. Gemologists consider such mineral inclusions to be the proof of the natural origin of alexandrite.
