This extraordinary one of a kind Alexandrite and Diamond Pendant features an extremely rare 41.76ct pear shaped cabochon Alexandrite set in platinum. It is accented with a 0.24ct faceted Alexandrite and a 1.93ct vibrant Cat’s Eye Chrysoberyl in 22k yellow gold. The centerpiece is surrounded by a custom accent of over 100 diamonds (1.28ct twt, SI1/GH) pave set in 14k rose gold and is finished with a drop pear shape diamond (1.25ct SI2/G) set in platinum. The pendant hangs permanently from our rose gold hand forged chain (link to chain on website) accented with diamonds.
Alexandrites are known for their color change characteristic – a natural phenomenon that occurs based on the light source. In natural daylight they show as a rich bluish-green and in incandescent light they change to a purplish red. Both of the Alexandrites in this pendant show strong color change. The Cat’s Eye Chrysoberyl is the same mineral as Alexandrite (Chrysoberyl) but a different variety and is a deep yellow and shows an intense “eye” across the gemstone.
