18k White Gold 13.19ct Light Pink Faceted Pear Kunzite and 1.07ct Diamond Ring
Kunzite is the pale pink to violet form of the mineral 'spodumene'. In the case of Kunzite, it is the presence of manganese mineral traces as the crystals form that cause the delightful pink and violet hues. As you turn a Kunzite gemstone in your hand it can flash from pink to violet or dark pink to colorless in some examples. This unusual phenomenon is called pleochroism and only occurs in a small number of gemstones. The light pastel tone of Kunzite embodies its calming abilities and symbolizes its innocence and purity. Its definite feminine appeal and appearance make it a timeless treasure for everyday wear. Interestingly, American President John F Kennedy ordered a ring featuring a 47 carat kunzite gem surrounded by diamonds as a Christmas present for his wife, Jackie. This was the last gift from JFK to Jackie as he died just three weeks later. It was later auctioned for over $400,000 in the Sotheby's auction of Jackie's estate.
