Vintage 9ct Gold Alexandrite & Spinel Cluster Ring LDP Ltd Birmingham 1970 (A1191)
A very attractive vintage cluster ring. The centre stone is a lab grown alexandrite which is a deep green in most lights but can also show hints of blue under florescent. At a glancing angle under tungsten light it has red flashes, due to the axis it was cut on the red is quite subtle in most cases although under UV light it is much more obvious. See the final image with the stone subjected to UV light. The outer cluster is of clear spinel stones, these are particularly lively for their type and really stand out under mixed lighting.
The alexandrite stone is probably a hydro-thermal grown example, and even though lab grown these stones are still very expensive due to the difficulty of production. Overall it is a very attractive ring with a much sought after stone and very well balanced with the large halo of spinel stones.
