    About Alexandrite Rings

    Alexandrite rings have a unique advantage because the gemstone changes color like a chameleon. Alexandrite is the birthstone for the month of June and it is also the anniversary stone for the 55th year of marriage. The discovery of alexandrite dates back to the early 19th century i.e. the 1830s. It was discovered in the region of the Ural Mountains in Russia, where emerald mines were located.

    Composition of Alexandrite

    Alexandrite is a form of the mineral chrysoberyl and it is known for exhibiting color change properties. The presence of iron and titanium along with chromium in the mineral renders alexandrite its unique attribute of color change. The color of alexandrite usually ranges between different shades of green or blue and various hues of red. Sometimes the color is yellowish green or brownish green.

    Price & Symbolism of Alexandrite

    The value of alexandrite depends on the saturation of the colors. The darker the color, the more valuable the gemstone. It is this richness of color that made alexandrite a heartthrob of the Russian ruling class in yesteryears during the time of Czars and has now made it the apple of the eye to people in general. The Alexandrite ring is a symbol of power and affluence. The alexandrite in the ring is said to change its color when its wearer is in some sort of danger.

A side stone alexandrite ring has a centrestone that is surrounded by gemstones, usually diamonds, on the shank or metal band that makes the ring. The stones run along the length of the ring's metal band sometimes in full and sometimes in part.
