Vintage Large ‘Alexandrite’ Colour Change Sapphire Ring

One of the largest and most impressive examples of a man-made color change sapphire ( sometimes erroneously called synthetic Alexandrite ) that we have had the pleasure of offering.

Measuring a large 1.8cm in diameter, the secure four claw set round faceted
Sapphire exhibits a hard to describe teal hue which of course changes dramatically to a vivid Amethyst purple under certain lighting conditions.

Set in a raised open-work scalloped gallery to pointed tapered shoulders  to a nice thick half round band.

Modelled in rose gold which tests as approx 16cts! and is stamped ’16’ to the outer rear of the shank.

This is an incredible ring, a show stopper and draws compliments when ever she is seen.
