Entrancing mid-century blueish-green tourmaline featuring a strong intense vivid cat's-eye effect that shimmers with every movement of the hand. Chatoyancy (cat's-eye effect) is a optical phenomenon where a display of a narrow bend of concentrated light goes across the width of the stone - reminiscent of the eye of a cat - hence why it is more commonly referred to as 'cat's-eye'. This enchanting stone is set in a solid 18k yellow gold setting featuring a Florentine finish. Ring is circa 1960.
