The distinct adularescence of this unusual champagne colored moonstone is a phenomenon which creates a glow that appears to come from below the surface of the gem. This effect is caused by light passing over the stone when it's rotated. Mounted in a graceful and substantial setting from the 1970's, the stone is surrounded by a swirl of 14k yellow gold. The ring is between a size 5 and 5 3/4 and weighs a hefty 13 grams. The moonstone alone measures 20mm by 12mm. There is a hallmark inside the shank, however we are able only to decipher the name Michael. The original owner tells us it was made in Detroit, Michigan area during the 1970's by a jeweler named Michael who did custom work for a substantial clientele. Designed to be worn with the stone on the top of the finger, the impression is graceful, creative, and dramatic.
