Break out your dictionary because we’ve got a new vocab word for you: Labradorescence. It’s the diffraction of light in labradorite’s thin layers and inclusions, it’s her spectral of sheen, her delightful display of optical pleasance. Too much? Ok, we’ll keep it simple - it means shiny.
Our Blue River Ring is a navette piece of glory with a badass labradorite beaming its labradorescence (the word did begin with the discovery of this fancy feldspar, so it makes sense). She’s front and center, stealing the show. She’s the centerpiece of your look, your day, your world. A world basked in royal blue...could be worse : )
Get her while she’s hot, as gem-quality labradorite is far from common, especially the kind crafted from the Victorian era (circa 1870) and set in delicately detailed 15-karat gold.
Labradorite seems ordinary until the light catches and suddenly a shimmery metallic spectrum of goodness is radiating all over you. Now, how can you go wrong with that? She’s obsession at first sight.
