Weighing 6.08 carats, this captivating oval-cut alexandrite exhibits the unique color change for which these rare stones are renowned. Displaying a lovely olive green hue in daylight, the remarkable gem presents a unique deep brown-pink color when exposed to incandescent light. Certified by the Gemological Institute of America and the American Gemological Laboratories to be a natural alexandrite, it has undergone no treatment or enhancements to achieve this exceptionally rare color change.

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 the national military colors of Russia - 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.

The rare gem is set in a classic platinum and yellow gold mounting with white diamond accents totaling .91 carats.
