Indoors the warm rose gold blends with the purple presentation of these lab grown alexandrite earrings. Outdoors the alexandrite changes to teal, strongly contrasting with the rose gold tone.
Alexandrite was first discovered in the Ural Mountains in Russia and is named after Czar Alexander II. It is one of the rarest gemstones and good quality alexandrite is more expensive than diamond. This is because it’s a colour change stone, appearing green/teal in daylight and red/purple in incandescent light.
Because good quality natural alexandrite can be so expensive, lab grown alexandrite has become very popular. Lab grown gemstones are chemically identical to their earth mined counterparts. This means that lab grown alexandrite has the same colour change properties as natural alexandrite.
