Alexandrite is a favorite among jewelry enthusiasts and gem collectors for its unique color-changing properties. In daylight conditions the stone reflects a bluish-green hue, while at night the gemstone features a reddish hue under incandescent light. These rare gemstones often present two or more distinct colors simultaneously, making them truly spectacular. The spellbinding color-changing properties of alexandrite have led some to call it “emerald by day, ruby by night.”
Alexandrite is one of the birthstones for the month of June, and as such makes an excellent birthday gift. It also makes an ideal anniversary gift or a unique alternative to diamonds for an engagement ring. Our collection of natural alexandrite jewelry features an assortment of rings, earrings, and pendants set in yellow or white gold. These high-quality products belong to our line of expertly made birthstone jewelry.
History of Natural Alexandrite
The first alexandrite stones were discovered around 1830 in the Ural Mountains of Russia. The gemstone was named after the emperor-to-be at the time, Alexander II. Alexandrite was quickly embraced across the country, as its red and green hues matched the national military colors of Imperial Russia. Today the popularity of alexandrite has spread across the globe.
