Color-Changing Alexandrite Ring, 4.52 Carat

$38,500

About

Weighing 4.52 carats, this captivating oval-cut alexandrite exhibits the unique color change for which these rare stones are renowned. Displaying a lovely bluish-green hue in daylight, the remarkable gem exhibits a beautiful purple color when exposed to incandescent light. Both of these dramatic colors are perfectly accented by the numerous surrounding round white diamonds all set in platinum. An entrancing stone with a noble history, alexandrites of this caliber are among the most coveted gemstones in the world. While the alexandrite’s almost magical trait of dramatically changing colors in varying light makes it extremely valuable, its history makes it all the more intriguing. The first alexandrite was discovered in Russia in 1834 on the birthday of Tsar Alexander II and was thus named in his honor. Because the stone's natural color change resembles Russia's national military colors – red and green – the tsar subsequently claimed all of the best examples of this natural chrysoberyl for the throne, making this truly the gemstone of royalty.
