Tourmaline Ring with Early Diamonds French Antique

About

Chrome tourmaline is a deep forest-green tourmaline that is named after the chromium which gives the gem its rich, deep green. Ordinary green tourmaline is not rare; chrome tourmaline is considered a collector's gem because it's extremely rare. It is typically found in sizes smaller than one-carat. This magnificently rare and gorgeous antique Victorian ring from France features a hand-cut chrome oval chrome tourmaline measuring approximately 11.82 mm x 7.63 mm and weighing just over 2 carats. This stunning gemstone displays a rich highly-saturated forest green when viewed face-up. When looked at from an angle, the green shifts to more of a Tsavorite or emerald green. This is an incredibly rare and stunning ring. The gallery beneath the stone features elegant piercing work that adds both beauty and light to the ring. This remarkable gemstone is surrounded by sixteen early point-cut diamonds totaling near 1 carat (It's impossible to accurately ascertain carat weight when these old diamonds are mounted). The diamonds and the chrome tourmaline are set in silver atop gold; this was done to maximize brilliance, as silver is the most highly-reflective white metal. Currently a size 8 ½, this ring could be resized by your local jeweler. The tourmaline is original to the setting and has no chips, scratches or abrasions. This is a pristine antique jewel.
