Vintage 10K Chrome Diopside Solitaire Ring From Thailand
We love Chrome Diopside. Its beautiful deep-green saturation is just regal. This gemstone is relatively new to the world of Gems. Discovered in Siberia in the late 1980s, it was then and is still called "The Siberian Emerald" for its beautiful green color. Since that time it has remained a favorite gemstone for fine jewelry.
The O'ahu, Hawai'i Estate tells us that this ring was acquired at the New City Gem Factory in Bangkok, Thailand in 1992 while visiting Thailand. This is likely were the gem was cut from rough and mounted into its current setting.
The gemstone is set in a lovely 10K Yellow Gold mount with enhanced and polished shoulders. It measures a nice 10mm x 8mm and weighs 3.5 Carats. This ring is a size 6.25 (6 1/4) and has a weight of 2.4 grams.
This lovely, lovely ring is sure to please. It will arrive in its original box marked New City Gem Factory, Bangkok, Thailand.
