I’m seriously excited that I finally made this ring. It was in the works for at least four years but it took time for all of the components to come together. I wanted the colour contrast to be just right which is especially important when working with colour change stones.
Indoors the warm rose gold blends with the tone of the rose cut centre sapphire and the halo alexandrites subtly compliment in their purple presentation. Outdoors the halo changes to teal, strongly contrasting with the rose and pink tones and then it really becomes quite…bewitching.
Alexandrite is the colour change variety of the gemstone chrysoberyl. It has a hardness just slightly less than sapphire so is a good choice for an everyday ring. It was first discovered in the Ural Mountains in Russia and is named after Czar Alexander II.

- Gold does not tarnish so it’s not necessary to use commercial cleaners or the (included) anti-tarnish cloth.
- If a build up develops under the setting(s) resulting in the stones looking less brilliant, simply take a soft tooth brush, dip it in some warm soapy water and proceed to scrub away the dirt/build-up under the setting(s).
- In addition to free cleaning and polishing for life you are also welcome to send/bring back your piece at any time for a complimentary assessment.
- Over time a ring you wear every day will get small scratches developing into a lovely ‘worn’ polished patina. I encourage people to learn to love this burnished finish as constantly polishing your ring actually removes a tiny bit of metal each time.
