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 it's own internal light source! This good sized gem measures 16.26mm long x 14.87mm wide, 10.13mm deep. This stunning Aquamarine gem has been recently assessed, independently, by a registered valuer/ gemmologist stating the stone to be a 'mid-blue' colour with 'small inclusions' (SI)- cannot be seen to the naked eye and seen only with magnification. This blue beauty is sure to please any aqua lover....
This bold yet glamorous, cocktail style ring was custom made in the 70's in a very simple but stylish design, it has been 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. This inner ring size adjuster, which is fused to the inside of shank, also aids in a spinning top section. The 2mm- 2.4mm wide shank has a subtle round edge profile, with upswept shoulders giving extra support to setting. Aquamarine is set into a tapered collet 4 x claw setting with side 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, can just still be seen, ring has been tested as well. There is another stamp on the opposite side with letter 'X'. Total weight of ring on jewellers scales is 12.25 grams.
