Alexandrite is a fantastic natural colour change gemstone. Originally found in Russia and named after the Tsar; its appearance in colour changes from an emerald green in the natural light to the richness of ruby red in the artificial light. The colour change is caused because of the stones natural levels of chromium which is at a band that is perfectly balanced between the emitted colour of red and green. In daylight we perceive the colour to be green and under the night or artificial light, it is seen as red. The perfect mix of colours!
This stone has a more subtle colour change from a bright green outside to a purplish hue in the overhead lights of indoors.
It is a radiant cut of one carat and is set with .50 carat of lovely bright sparkling diamonds; all G in colour and SI in clarity.
A unique handmade piece especially for Darling Deco; It makes a wonderful engagement ring that will keep you glancing at your hand to see the fascinating colour play of greens and purple unfolding with the light.
It comes with an independent valuation and we can size it to fit!
