Retro Rose Gold Synthetic Color Change Sapphire Ring (Vintage)
We love when we have pieces in the shop that are pretty versatile. Our Retro Rose Gold Synthetic Color Change Sapphire ring is a very modern piece. Modern, that is, in that it works well for either a man or a woman. WendyKate has had it on her hand and it looks great, but we’ve also had some of our male customers try it on and it looks just as stunning. Versatile, indeed.
What We Love About It:
Well, since we’re posting this on our website during Pride Month, we love that this ring doesn’t get all caught up in gender roles. It’s truly gender fluid. Which is ok by us. The stunning color change between intense blue through indigo to the deepest of purple is a pretty cool attribute too.
The ring is crafted out of 14kt (tested) rose gold and holds an oval synthetic color change sapphire (some have called it a synthetic alexandrite, but we don’t see the typical green and red flashes, so we’re pretty set on sapphire) that measures 14mm x 11mm, is roughly 5.6cts and is bezel set. It’s currently a size 5.5 but fits more like a size 6, since there is extensive room for “knuckle wiggle” under the stone. It could easily be sized up or down by our jeweler (see options in this post) or by yours, but with this ring, for the best fit, we suggest you taking it your jeweler in person. It weighs in at 7.6g in total.
We like to think of ourselves as an open minded lot here at Katie Callahan & Co. and that extends to who wears our pieces. Do you love it? That’s all that matters to us. 🙂
