Known as "emerald by day and ruby by night," Alexandrite has the unique property of changing colors under different lighting. In natural sunlight, it shows a green hue, while it becomes pink to red under incandescent lights. Some show purple and gray hues as well, adding to the mystery and beauty of this stone. First discovered in the Russia, Alexandrite was named for Tsar Alexander II. It is now additionally found in India, Madagascar, Tanzania and Sri Lanka. Lab grown Alexandrite is chemically and scientifically identical to natural examples, but is produced under scientific supervision, achieving superior clarity and beauty.
Alexandrite is the June birthstone, but it can be enjoyed by anyone wanting to add color, beauty, and intrigue to their jewelry box.
This classic pendant begins with a cushion cut, checkerboard faceted, lab grown Alexandrite stone, which is then set in a bright, polished white gold setting, accented with three round diamonds. What a beauty!
