This spectacular vintage cocktail ring boasts a huge 12 carat round synthetic Alexandrite that exudes a breathtaking colour change with flashes of violet, pink, blue and red depending on the light.
The ring comes complete with its original 1970s velvet box from Hoiman Jewellers on the Peking Road in Hong Kong. The Peking Road is Hong Kong's premier shopping district hosting luxury brands like Tiffany and Cartier.
This majestic ring has a towering profile standing very high from the finger. It is crafted in heavy luxurious yellow and white 18ct gold with the gorgeous purple Alexandrite held aloft in 4 tall curvy claws. This star of the show is accented at each side by 3 marquise shaped motifs bead set in pairs of bright white sparkling melee diamonds.
A thick flat gold band completes this stunning cocktail ring that is celebrity worthy, a must for those who love luxurious statement rings!
The gemstones have been tested and verified using a Presidium Gem Tester and Gemological Refractometer.
Synthetic Alexandrites are real Alexandrites with exactly the same properties and qualities as their natural earth-mined sisters, the only difference is that they have grown in a laboratory instead of the ground. One of finest qualities a synthetic gemstone possesses is that it is completely guilt-free!
