A magnificent rock this is! The emerald-cut natural aquamarine is estimated to weigh 16.25 carats. It has a stunning blue colour.... presenting to the eye like it has its own internal light source! The bold yet glamorous, cocktail style ring was custom made in the 1970's into a very simple but stylish design and hand-crafted in Platinum .... only the best material for this gem! The band features an inner 'U' shaped ring size adjuster allowing for a more flexible fit; suiting finger size J / 5 through to N/ 7. The inner ring size adjuster is fused to the inside of shank and aids from setting rolling on the finger (quite a clever idea!). The 2mm- 2.4mm wide shank has a subtle round edge profile, and upswept shoulders giving extra support to the setting. The aquamarine is set into a tapered four claw collet setting with side rail support - the open style setting gives maximum light to the stone. Total height of setting measures 12.3mm.
Stamped "PLATINUM" on the inside of band, although slightly obscured by inner ring adjuster, it can partially be seen. There is another stamp on the opposite side with the letter 'X'. Total weight of ring on jeweller's scales is 12.25 grams.
A timeless, yet glamorous statement ring, sure to please the avid Aquamarine lover! A video is available - I can send it to you:-)
