Description

Vintage Silver & Colour Change Sapphire Necklace

A vintage hand made silver necklace set with colour change sapphires in round rope twist settings.  From the style it likely dates from the mid 20th century and would have been made by an artisan silversmith rather than a large factory.  The sapphires are approx 5.75 carats each so total carat weight of 34.5.  They are lab grown and have the same properties as mined sapphires and also test as sapphire.  They are however more environmentally friendly as they are grown in a lab rather than mined.    Colour change sapphires are often referred to as alexandrite sapphires due to the colour shift.  These show purple in most indoor light settings and blue in sunlight. 

One setting is indistinctly marked 925 and it tests as silver.   The fixing is a simple S style closure.
