An extraordinary necklace and earring set beautifully made in 14k and 18k yellow gold, sparkling diamonds and natural alexandrite.
Alexandrite, a color-change chrysoberyl, is one of the rarest of all colored gemstones, it has an amazing color change from blue- green to purple depending on the light.
The oval alexandrites are set in prongs and framed with two rows of small but very sparkly diamonds, the earrings have a post finding that is hidden by the top diamond.
The pendant has the same design though the pendant allows the drop to move within the second halo of diamonds. It hangs from a bail set with five small diamonds and a larger diamond that attaches to the pendant with a small jump ring so the pendant is fluid.
The earrings measure .5" by 3/8", the pendant is 1" by 7/16", the chain is 19.75" long and has two extra rings in the chain so it can be worn at three different lengths- 19.75", 17.75" and 15.25".
The pendant is 18k and the chain is 14k, the earrings are set in 18k and have 14k posts and nuts.
The alexandrite in the pendant is 5mm by 4mm, the earrings are 4mm by 3mm. The small diamonds are 1mm, the larger diamond in the pendant is 3mm, the earrings have 2mm diamonds at the top. Total weight is 6.8 grams.
The pendant and bail are marked 750 for 18k with an SR hallmark, the chain is marked 14k. The earrings are not marked but the settings test 18k, the ear posts and nuts are marked 14k.
The appraisal lists the total weight of the diamonds at .41 carats, the alexandrite is .37 carats. Diamond color H/I. The earrings have a carat weight of .56 diamonds, H/I color, the alexandrite is .40 carats. Appraised in 2015 for a total of $9695, the appraisal will be included.
I have photos of the set taken in both natural and incandescent light to show the dramatic color change. The photos in low light are not as crisp as I would like but the color change is obvious. Some photos even show the transition of color.
A truly stunning set with classic style and featuring natural alexandrite and diamonds.
