Description
Kunzite is a gemstone that has not been known for very long: it was not until 1903 that it was discovered in Pala in San Diego County. This mineral was named after its discoverer, the American gemologist George Frederick Kunz. Kunz acquired such an extensive and impressive knowledge of gemstones through his own studies that he was employed as vice-president of Tiffany & Co. in New York as early as 1888. We also have him to thank for important works on the cultural history of jewellery and precious stones, such as "The Curious Lore of Precious Stones" (1913). Kunzite is coveted not only for its cool, delicate color, but also for its striking luster. In this ring, a large, exquisitely faceted kunzite weighing approximately 35.00 ct is set in high karat white gold. The gold protects the stone and presents it high above the finger. When viewed from the side, the ring reveals an exciting dynamic: here, the ring is deeply cut, with a drop-cut diamond occupying the starting point of the design. We discovered the ring in Paris. Its hallmark proves that it was created in the master workshops of the famous Mauboussin jewellery house in Paris. An independent appraisal has confirmed the quality of the gemstone and comes with the ring.
