ABOUT THIS RING

Discovered in 1834 in the Russian Ural mountain range, this beautiful color change stone, Alexandrite, was named after the future Russian Tsar Alexander II, as it was discovered on his birthday. The one that graces the center of this charming estate ring is a clear bluish-green in daylight or fluorescent light, and changes to a subtle light purplish-red in incandescent light. The ring takes on a lovey shape with gently curving shoulders accented by bright marquise diamonds. If your 55th wedding anniversary is approaching, this rare and wondrous gem is the stone that marks that significant occasion. Alexandrite weight, .86 carat; total diamond weight, .19 carat. Rendered in platinum, currently size 6 1/4.

About Estate Jewelry

Though it calls to mind grand manor houses in the English countryside, “estate” is just a fancy way of describing any piece of jewelry with a previous owner. That’s pretty much everything in our collection. We tend to use “estate” to refer to pieces in our collection with a more modern or contemporary design, or vintage-inspired designs. These perennial gems are selected in harmony with our original antique and vintage pieces…they’re just a little bit younger!

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
