Vintage Estate Huge Natural Alexandrite & Diamond Ring 14k W/g For Sale
New Page 6
thank you for viewing our sale. You are offerding on a FANTASTIC, all
natural, untreated/unheated Alexandrite (certified) and diamond ring cast
in solid 14k white gold. The alexandrite is a modified oval cut measuring 9.82
x 6.32 x 3.47 in diameter and weighs a WHOPPING 1.85 CARATS!
This is the largest alexandrite we have had in well over a decade! The clarity
of this stone is SI1 (TYPE II per GIA). We consider it to be completely EYE
CLEAN and crystal clear to the unaided eye. If you have ultra fine vision, you
may notice a few 'eyelash' imperfections upon extremely close examination but
on the hand and for all intents and purposes, this is a CLEAN and CLEAR
alexandrite. Unheard of for this size! Under x10 or higher magnification
rutile and needle lines are present. This stone is a very sensitive color
changer and AIGS graded it as 'strong' color change (which is something
we hardly ever see! Most are rated as 'moderate' color change. Please scroll
down to the end of the sale page to see the mini-cert from AIGS dated
2008.) Under fluorescent light (such as standard kitchen light) and outside in
indirect lighting (especially at dusk), the color is a very vibrant green to
greenish blue. In indoor lighting, mixed light and incandescent light, the
color will be a bluish purple to purple red. The richer the red rays from the
light source, the more dramatic the color shift. Candle light offers the best
in terms of observing the deep purplish red color. Please see the images
below. While a daunting task, the photos show what we were able to capture in
terms of color change using ONLY natural light sources only. The color is
actually richer in person. If you love alexandrite, you do not want to miss
this one! This is our last alexandrite and we do not know when we will be
getting another. The alex is complimented by two (2) full cut tapered
baguettes weighing .06 points each for a total combined weight of .12
carats. They are VS2 to SI1 in clarity and H in color (crystal clear and
face colorless). The metal content is 14k white gold (not hallmarked but
tested and guaranteed) and the gram weight is a very comfortable 3 grams. The
ring is currently a size 4.5 and can easily be resized. Please note we do not
photoshop our images to enhance or alter color! All images below were
taken using NATURAL indirect lighting and incandescent light ONLY. No
fluorescent lighting used. Retail replacement value is at least $9,800.
photos have been enlarged to show detail so please refer to the dimensions
listed in the sale for the ring's actual size.
Resizing is available.

size in order to quote you a price. Please note resizing WILL delay
