Striking in both its vibrancy of color and design, this bracelet by Oscar Heyman boasts an astounding 77.28 carats of cat’s eye chrysoberyls and 31.09 carats of moonstones. The 57 chrysoberyls display a bold yellowish-green hue and sharp chatoyancy, the phenomenon that causes the unique cat’s eye effect. This phenomenon occurs when light reflects off small, precisely aligned rutile inclusions in the stone, creating a marvelous effect. Likewise, the 10 moonstones exhibit a lovely bluish-gray hue and exceptional play of color, caused by a phenomenon known as adularescence that occurs when light falls through the thin layers of the jewel.
Certified by C. Dunaigre to be natural cat's eye chrysoberyls and natural moonstones, these fabulous cabochon jewels have not undergone any treatment or enhancements to achieve their exceptionally rare reflective phenomena. The gemstones are set in platinum with 4.71 carats of colorless accent diamonds.
