Labradorite is kind of a magic stone: in some lights, it is as dense and dark as a black olive. But in others, light rays work themselves into the very being of the stone and shine out with rainbow hues. This is called the Schiller effect. That's the science part. The other side to labradorite is it's mystic nature: the stone is thought to slow down the aging process and detoxify the body. Who needs water? Throw this beauty on after a night of drinking and see what happens!

In truth, the stone and colors it displays are extremely beautiful and rare in nature. Beyond opals and moonstones, not many other stones can appear as one color, yet display a rainbow in the right light. This ring is boats a large oval labradorite in a beautiful and simple setting. The stone is a rich grey/ black/ green color, with veins of dark blue running throughout. A thick gold band supports the stone, adorned only with a few old-fashioned European/ German/ Maltese style crosses on either side. The design is elegant and complements the labradorite beautifully.

The gold is 14K, tested but not marked. The ring appears to be 1960's/ 1970's but could be earlier, based on the design. I rarely see labradorite as the original stone in very old settings, which is why I'm putting this as a more recent vintage piece. It definitely has some nice age to it. The ring itself is in very good condition, with some slight wear to the surface of the stone, as is common with vintage pieces. The band is a size 5 US, but can be sized by a competent jeweler as the design does not extend all the way around the band. The stone is about 1/2" measure side to side (horizontally).

This is a really gorgeous piece.
