Weighing 3.65 carats, the captivating cat's eye alexandrite in this Oscar Heyman creation exhibits the unique color change for which these rare stones are legendary. The cabochon stone displays a lovely bluish yellowish green hue in daylight and a pinkish-purple hue when viewed under incandescent light. Adding to the rarity of this regal jewel is the presence of the "cat's eye" phenomenon, otherwise known as chatoyancy. This gemstone phenomenon occurs when light reflects off of small, precisely aligned rutile inclusions in the stone to create a marvelous effect.

Certified by GemResearch Swisslabs to be a natural cat's eye alexandrite, this remarkable jewel has not undergone any treatment or enhancements to achieve its exceptionally rare color change or reflective phenomenon. The alexandrite is set in a platinum mounting with a halo of white diamond accents totaling 1.27 carats.

An entrancing stone with a noble history, alexandrites of this caliber are among the most coveted gemstones in the world. While the alexandrite’s almost magical trait of dramatically changing colors in varying light makes it extremely valuable, its history makes it all the more intriguing. The first alexandrite was discovered in Russia in 1834 on the birthday of Tsar Alexander II and was thus named in his honor. Because the stone's natural color change resembles the national military colors of Russia - red and green - the tsar subsequently claimed all of the best examples of this natural chrysoberyl for the throne, making alexandrite the gemstone of Russian royalty.
