Gem was recut from an large, chipped estate stone. The Ayn Rand pattern Antique 2 pattern was designed by Carl Downey and the stone was hand-cut by myself. This gemstone is 15.2x12.8mm and weighs over 5 cts! A lovely pale pink stone, with one internal wisp near the bottom. A great setting will draw attention from the wisp and it will not be noticeable.

A hand-cut gem is also a one-of-a-kind - great for a unique gift or a special treat for yourself. This could be kept as part of a gem collection, or mounted into any piece of jewelry you desire.
