This breathtaking 18ct gold ring boasts a massive 12 carat Alexandrite gemstone in a regal deep purple. A stunning colour in incandescent and natural light, this is a sought after gemstone that exudes magic. The ring comes complete in the original retailers box from Hoiman Jewellers, Peking Road, Hong Kong. The Peking Road is Hong Kong's premier shopping district hosting luxury brands like Tiffany and Cartier.
The epitome of 1970s glamour the ring is crafted in heavy gauge 18ct yellow gold. It has a very tall profile with the exquisite alexandrite gemstone held aloft in 4 tall claws. The shoulders are decorated in 3 marquise shaped motifs in white gold that are set in sparkling diamonds. A thick gold band completes this stunning alexandrite ring that is celebrity worthy, a must for those who love luxurious statement rings!
Alexandrites were discovered in the late 19th century in the Russian Ural mountains and became symbolic of Imperial Russia. An incredibly rare colour changing corundum, sister to the sapphire, todays alexandrites are synthetic and they clearly possess the original allure that makes them so special!
