Magnificent Natural 4.60 ct. Oval 9 X 11 mm Peridot! An ancient gemstone, with the radiance of the sun; beloved by the Pharaohs, judged magical by the Romans, and carried home by the crusaders to adorn medieval churches! Peridot is one of those rare gems that occur in just one color, green from the mineral family olivine, or forsterite. Produced for centuries exclusively in the mysterious barren island of Zabargad, off the coast of Egypt.
This Peridot is a intense mint green color, transparent and eye-clean, and each facet glistens with brilliance! The four prong mounting and shank are platinum (tested .950) and the gallery and open filigree work are 18 K (tested) yellow gold. The shoulders of the mounting are accented with two white Marquise Diamonds of approximately 0.10 ct. each for a total 0.20 ct. The shank is beautifully engraved all around, including the outer edging.
Size 7.5 and sizeable. The ring weighs a hefty 15.6 grams. August Birthstone. Fabulous and very comfortable fitting ring!
