Of all the gemstones, Alexandrite may be the most enigmatic. Loved for its rare color-changing ability, natural Alexandrite has been valued for centuries. Yet, it remains shrouded in mystery and allure. When set in rings, the chameleon-like Alexandrite displays an intriguing duality–exuding both vibrancy and subtlety. For those who appreciate uncommon beauty, Alexandrite rings make exceptionally meaningful and striking jewelry. However, while natural alexandrite has an expensive price tag due to its scarcity, lab alexandrite has become the choice of many couples due to its environmental friendliness and affordability.

Discovered in Russia’s Ural Mountains in the 1830s, Alexandrite was named after the future Czar Alexander II. This regal history matched the stone’s majesty. Alexandrite displays a magical color change from bluish-green in daylight to purplish-red under incandescent light. Other gems can mimic this change, but only true Alexandrite does so dramatically. This chameleon-like ability, coupled with its durability and brilliance, puts natural Alexandrite in the elite ranks of precious gems.

Beyond its visual appeal, Alexandrite also holds meaning. Its dual coloring is said to mirror one’s inner and outer nature. To many, the stone represents integrity and self-awareness. For these reasons, Alexandrite has become a contemporary yet mystical choice for engagement rings.

With its rarity and color change, natural Alexandrite demands extremely high prices. With this factor in mind, we offer lab-grown alexandrite, which has the same physical properties and chemical ingredients as natural alexandrite. But there are key factors separating ordinary from exceptional stone quality:

  • Color Change – The most prized Alexandrites show a vibrant bluish-green in daylight and a deep raspberry tone under incandescent light. Weak color change lowers value.
  • Clarity – Eye-clean stones with few inclusions, good transparency, and high brilliance are best. Flaws can diminish color change.
  • Cut – Well-cut cushions and ovals maximize Alexandrite‘s shifting colors. Precision faceting is required to achieve the dramatic change.
  • Carat Size – Natural Alexandrites over 1 carat are exceptionally rare and costly. But lab alexandrite can still display lively color changes.

Understanding these benchmarks helps ensure you get the best quality Alexandrite for your budget.

Alexandrite makes a distinctive choice for engagement and anniversary bands, cocktail rings, and other heirloom styles.

  • For settings, white metals like platinum and white gold allow Alexandrite’s colors to dazzle. Halo and split shank settings also accentuate the gem. And for a breathtaking duo, Alexandrite and diamond rings showcase both fire and scintillation.
  • For styles, Alexandrite also pairs beautifully with Victorian, Art Deco, and floral motif styles that reflect its romantic yet dramatic nature.

Since true Alexandrite is exceptionally rare, rings made with it become instant treasures.

Unlike many colored stones, Alexandrite earns an 8.5 on the Mohs scale, making it fairly resistant to scratches and wear.
