Yellow Chrysoberyl Ring by Jennifer Dawes Design

$6,335.00

A Jennifer Dawes Design ring featuring a 2.78 carat oval yellow chrysoberyl from Tanzania. Expertly cut by master gem cutter Roger Dery, this gem appears vivid yellow–almost like a fancy color diamond–in some lights, and quite green in other light sources. Jennifer Dawes, known for her sustainable approach to jewelry, set this with a tone-on-tone effect using a halo of vivid green diamonds surrounding the center gem. You can see the hand of the artist with the hammered finish of the18k yellow gold. As with all ANZA purchases, this ring makes a difference in the gem communities in East Africa by supporting schools in Tanzania and Kenya. 

Description

This is a yellow chrysoberyl from Tanzania. We don’t find a lot of Chrysoberyl on our buying trips to East Africa, so we get pretty excited about this gem! Measuring an 8.5 on Mohs hardness scale and with a relatively high refractive index, Chrysoberyl is bright, lively and makes a good choice to wear every day. It is typically found eye-clean and is almost never treated or altered.
