This oval simulated alexandrite is made with lab-created corundum. Its color ranges from bluish-green to bluish-purple: some stones show more blue; some show more purple. Simulated alexandrite allows you to offer customers the color and characteristics of this gemstone at a lower price point. Use it to create a bold pendant, pair it with complementary-color cabs to create matched sets with earrings or bracelets, or use it to create more complex, multi-stone designs. Alexandrite is one of the birthstones for June.
The oval cut is an even, symmetrical shape but elongated. The arrangement of its facets is similar to that of a round brilliant, designed to maximize light and color.
