|Diamonds and alexandrite
Alexandrite is a purple-green gemstone that changes it’s color under different types of lighting. It is also known as the birthstone for the month of June, and is related to the zodiac sign of Gemini.
Whether extracted from nature or created in a lab, alexandrite engagement rings are a quick change artist, often noted as the “emerald by day, ruby by night” gemstone. When this gemstone was first discovered in Russia in 1834, it was mistaken for emerald. It wasn’t until the light changed that the miners realized they had discovered an entirely new gemstone, and it was given the name “alexandrite” for the Russian Tsar Alexander II. Glistening under sunlight, alexandrite stones appear a vivacious teal-green color, but when paired with artificial or incandescent light, a deep purple or magenta color takes over. With such duality, alexandrite engagement rings are perfect for the free spirited soul.
