These studs are beautiful. At first, given the price, I thought these might be inferior quality to what could be obtained elsewhere. I've seen 1 carat Chatham lab grown alexandrites for about 500 per carat so I was skeptical. When I got them I was pleasantly surprised, they do actually change from green to reddish purple. My local jeweler said that these would have cost about 500 dollars if I had bought them from him. Color change me impressed!
Alexandrite stud earrings in gold, platinum, or silver, optional screw backs.
As complex and regal as you are, these studs change color with the lighting from rich teal to deep burgundy. Named for Alexander II , Alexandrite is Russia's national gem and one of the rarest, most expensive stones in the world with a price exceeding that of diamond. As such, it has spawned many imitations. These are no imitation: they're cut from crystals grown in a lab to exactly replicate their formation in the depths of the earth. They are Alexandrite, at a fraction of the cost of mined Alexandrite.
A June birthstone, Alexandrite is a stone of duality
Legend holds that it enhances the wearer's ability to make clear decisions between difficult paths. It is also strongly associated with healers and healing. Worn by the Tzars of Russia, Alexandrite echos the red and green colors of the Russian flag and was originally discovered in Russia.
