Fine cigar ring set with a 3.5ct alexandrite and accented with diamonds in 18k.
The natural alexandrite is likely from India, changing from brownish green to brownish purple.
The natural day light state is a medium saturated brown tinged with green.
Even with a silky undertone, the alexandrite's daylight color charms. It is the color of the river.
The color change comes to 70% and this is a conservative estimate.
Nevertheless, a silky alexandrite means you will need white light (less ambient light), in order to appreciate the color change fully.
The closed back stone is held in a wide cigar ring band embellished with diamonds in two styles, halo, and flanking the halo.
Because the diamonds are bead set and not pavé, the embellishment is sleek. The gold work is refined, not clunky.
The ring is handsome despite its spread of diamonds, perhaps because the main stone has a dark horse aura.
This is a satisfying find. A natural, untreated alexandrite above 2ct, and in a vintage ring, is a rare affair.
The ring is tallest at 19mm.
The proportion and curvature of this cigar ring will wear well on most fingers, pinky included.
