This handmade ring features a rare cat's eye tourmaline set in 14K gold-fill. Gold-fill provides a much thicker layer of gold than gold-plated and should not wear off with proper care.
Cat's eye tourmaline is a rare variety that exhibits a unique reflection of light resembling the slit eye of a cat. The optical phenomenon is exceptionally rare and occurs in only a handful of gems. The distinct reflection is caused by tiny parallel fibers or needle-like inclusions within the stone, which is best viewed under direct sunlight. As the stone is rotated, a 'slit-eye-of-a-cat' reflection will appear to glide and roll across the surface of the stone. Another interesting characteristic of cat's eye tourmaline is that it can be electrically charged by extreme pressure or through rapid heating and cooling of crystals.
The ring can be finished in your size with a plain 14K gold-fill band. If you don't know your ring size, please select "I don't know". I will need your size within 3 days of purchase. You can get measured for free at any fine jewelry store, or add a complimentary ring sizer to your order.
Kindly allow up to 4 weeks for production.
