The center gemstone in this handsome ring is called indicolite tourmaline. Tourmaline is a naturally occurring gemstone that happens to be the national gemstone of the USA. It was chosen, I suspect, because it comes in a huge variety of colors, one of which is blue, or blue green, which is known in the gemstone trade as indicolite. Again, indicolite is nature made, and it's one of the most desirable and expensive varieties of tourmaline in the marketplace today. The indicolite stone in this ring is approximately 1 1/2 carats, and it is extremely clean (free of inclusions). It is an absolutely beautiful bluish green color in a rectangular step cut. The diamond solitaires are approximately .20 carats each, with a minimum SI2 clarity and H-J color; they are clean to the eye and sparkling white. The ring is a size 9 3/4 and weighs 16 grams. It is stamped 14k for 14 karat gold. There is no maker's hallmark. The ring was likely custom made and is probably one of a kind; whoever purchased it paid an arm and a leg for it. It is well crafted and a heavy piece. The hand hammered gold adds a wonderful texture to the shank of the ring, and the indicolite glows blue green in its setting. Overall a fabulous ring and perfect for either a man or a woman (the ring is easily resizable). Thanks for stopping by and don't be a stranger! ~ Amia
