Vintage ring with colour-changing synth. sapphire

A colour-changing gemstone like this one is truly mesmerizing. Depending on the light, the vintage ring shows a blue or purple faceted stone. Pure magic. I love the slight oval shape of the design. The ring comfortably hugs your finger and I’m pretty sure this will be your new favourite piece of jewellery!

The gemstone is synthetic. What does it mean? Long story short: synthetic gem material is made by people in a laboratory. It do shares all chemical, optical and physical characteristics of its natural mineral counterpart. Synthetic corundum, which includes sapphire, can be made by several processes. Because of this, synthetic corundum is available at many price levels. From very affordable to very expensive. Although this ring is from the 1970s, synthetic sapphires have been popular since the early 1900s. You can find some of the earliest examples of synthetic sapphires in art nouveau and art deco jewellery.
