The floral ring with the gemstone alexandrite at its centre is designed to display the stone's two stunning colours to their best effect. In sunlight, the gem exhibits the golden green-blue of a cool water lake. At dawn, the same gem turns an enchanting purple-red. In this piece, the artist-jeweller seeks to display that magical entanglement of two entirely different colours, that mysterious shock of colour combination. This ostentatious show of colour displays an acute sensitivity to light and reflection. For an added dimension, diamonds and pink tourmaline surrounds are arranged harmoniously, like the petals of a flower, giving scintillation and life to the design.
