Cynthia Scott 1.25ct Natural Alexandrite and 18kt Gold Ring, Made in Italy

$48,000

About

Elegant and sophisticated, yet incredibly easy to wear, my Italian crafted Contessa ring is a perfect backdrop for special gemstones. This ring features one of the most prized and highly sought after gems in the world, natural Brazilian alexandrite. This gemstone is an incredible addition to any collection. This natural alexandrite from the famed Brazilian deposit does exactly what an alexandrite should do: it switches from a richly saturated purplish color (blueish-red) to a richly saturated blue-green, depending on the light source. The stone is beautifully cut, and this stone is loupe clean. As this gem is expected to have visible inclusions, this kind of clarity is quite rare. This alexandrite checks off all the right boxes. My 18kt gold Contessa ring is richly detailed with exquisite details and is accented with six fine diamonds. Every visible surface of the ring is finished with richly detailed Florentine engraving. The wide, low-profile ring tapers to a comfortable fit underneath. -1.25ct Alexandrite (Brazil, Natural) -0.18ct Diamonds -18kt Gold -ring is approximately 13mm across at widest point -ring size 7 -made in Italy by Cynthia Scott Jewelry ABOUT THE GEMSTONE One of the more interesting phenomenon in the gemstone world is that truly rare materials are not often found to be in high demand by the jewelry marketplace; they are simply too rare to be known of among the general public and are often relegated to collector markets. Alexandrite is one of a few gemstones for which high consumer demand competes with true rarity. Alexandrite's historical allure and association with Tzarist Russia has given it a place among the most coveted of gemstones. Alexandrite is a chrysoberyl which exhibits a true change of color when exposed to different light sources. The best quality changes completely. The stone is famed for having originated in Russia, but those sources are generally mined out for commercial purposes. Today, alexandrites can be found in Sri Lanka, Africa, and Brazil. The Brazilian material is our favorite here at Cynthia Scott Jewelry; the unmistakable blue component makes for exquisite colors. Of course, the Brazilian material is also the most difficult to source. ABOUT THE TECHNIQUE This piece of jewelry was hand-fabricated and hand-engraved by goldsmiths in Florence, Italy. Florentine Engraving is an Old World jewelry making technique and style that has been synonymous with the city of Florence since the 15th Century.
