14K GoldPurple Color Change Sapphire Ring 1950s
Beautiful vintage mid century modernist statement ring featuring a 16 carat color change sapphire. The synthetic gemstone is set high off the finger with long prongs that reflect in the cupped design. The color changing sapphire, sometimes referred to as an alexandrite, shows a rich purple red in light changing to a blue violet green in some light conditions. Since the discovery of alexandrite, the gemstone has been thought to bring luck, good fortune, love and encourage romance. The perfect anniversary gift, for that June birthstone or for saying I love you to that special someone!
