This is a rare and exotic color-changing, diaspore ring.
This ring has approximately 12 carats total weight of fancy, scissor elongated cushion cuts with 4 matched diaspore gemstones. What makes these gemstones so beautiful is their sparkle as these diaspores are highly dispersive with rainbow sparkle. Then, as a bonus, this gemstone will change color from a kiwi green to a salmon pink in incandescent and candle lighting [like an alexandrite].
We set the 4 matching gemstones vertically, in a color-complementing rose gold setting. Incredible one-of-a-kind beauty.
Please note: There are a lot of Diaspore gemstones that are coming on the market that are synthetic or lead glass filled. Ours are 100% natural gemstones with no heat, no fissure filling, straight from the mine and expertly cut. You can tell the synthetics as they turn red, not peach color.

What exactly is a "Diaspore”?
If you are familiar with Alexandrite, you know that there are color changing gemstones out there... gemstones that, depending upon whether the light source is incandescent, fluorescent, halogen, direct sunlight, etc. changes the color of the gemstone. In the gem trade, color change is a rarity in and of itself. Alexandrite, East African Color Change Garnet and some rare Sapphires are all color change gemstones and we rarely see them. All of these gemstones are rare - they are true color changing - not color shifting. Diaspore, which is mined in only one place - in the Anatolia region of Turkey, is truly an exotic gemstone that you will treasure forever. In some of the photos you will see the gemstone trying to change color - you'll see portions of the gemstone peach, while other parts are green. The color change is more dramatic in person.
