This beautiful ring lends itself to the original Alexandrite stones of old that were mined out of Russia until about 100 years ago (see Wiki link). This is a lovely (15mm x 8mm - 6.5ct) Russian synthetic purple Alexandrite with all the color change qualities of the real deal accented by little white seed Pearls. In the sunlight you can see blues beneath the purples. It is set in sterling with ornate detail work. Size 7, can be sized by a good jeweler.
