5.53-carat Alexandrite Cabochon Ring

This elegant ring features a fascinating 5.53-carat alexandrite cabochon from Sri Lanka (Ceylon), which has a strong to moderate degree of color change from a brownish-green in sunlight or fluorescent light to a pink-brown in incandescent light.

The stone also greatly displays another phenomenon called chatoyancy or the “cat’s-eye effect,” caused by light reflecting from its parallel, needle-like inclusions to form a thin band across the dome that resembles a cat’s narrow pupil.

These striking qualities are all natural with no evidence of heat treatment, as certified by the American Gemological Laboratories.

The colors of the alexandrite and the smoothness of its cabochon cut, meanwhile, are perfectly complemented by the brushed surface of the rich yellow gold.
