Description

Featuring an unexpected ability to change from green to purple, this round alexandrite stone is an ideal choice for one-of-a-kind earring, pendant, necklace or ring designs. Highlight this color-changing quality by using the stone alone or pair it with contrasting-color stones to create multicolor looks. Alexandrite is one of the birthstones for June.

Due to its scarcity and almost magical ability to change from green/bluish-green to red/purplish-red (depending on the light source), alexandrite is one of the most valuable gemstones in the world. This rare chrysoberyl contains iron, titanium, and chromium, which provides its color-changing ability.

Round-cut gemstones are highly popular and the most commonly available. Rio round gemstones are calibrated for size and hand inspected to ensure maximum attractiveness.
