Charoite Sterling Ring - Genuine Russian Charoite


A beautiful simple charoite sterling ring handcrafted from sterling silver and featuring a deep purple charoite gem from Russia. This unique stone is set in a fine silver bezel setting surrounded by rope pattern wire and features a split shank ring band. The ring has been lightly oxidized to show the pattern of the rope accent wire. Charoite's beauty is in the beautiful depth of distinctive purple color and swirling patterns making this a rare and beautiful gem. Named for the only locale in which it is found, the Charo River Valley in the former Soviet Union. One of the loveliest aspects of the best Charoite gems is a slight to moderate chatoyancy which gives it a silky or pearly luster. Chatoyancy means it changes from light to dark from dark velvety purple with flashes of silver lavender as it is moved in the light. The ring is a size 7-7.5 depending on how you put the ring on. The shank placement leaves a bit of wiggle room to put on sideways to get over a larger knuckle.
