Offered today is a fabulous antique ring, in solid 14k yellow gold, by Weinman Brothers, esteemed jewelers in NYC since 1900. This is a unique ring, because of the beautiful "leafy" mounting, as well as the color change alexandrite gemstone set in the center.
Lab-created color-changing alexandrite was a popular stone for rings from the 1920s - 1960s. This ring shows up BLUE in natural light, and a very pretty periwinkle blueish purple in indoor light (like in the photos). (The really strange thing is that I take photos in natural light, and I can see when taking the pics that the ring is blue, but the camera captures it as purple in the pictures! Rest assured that when you are outside, the ring will be blue.)
The alexandrite is nestled in a laurel wreath of leaves. It is a round stone measuring a little over 8 mm, about 3.00 ct in size. It is accented by two diamonds at the corners. There is a very slight bit of abrasion to the facets of the table that can be seen with a loupe, but isn't really visible to the naked eye when the ring is worn.
The face measures 1/2" top to bottom. It is clearly hallmarked 14k with the Weinman Brothers WB hallmark. It weighs 4.6 grams, is a size 6.75, and can be sized by any competent jeweler. It is in very good vintage condition.
