JESSICA FLINN 

THE alexandrite COLLECTION

Alexandrites have fascinating, colour-changing properties called “pleochroism”.  This dramatic transformation between shades has made them our new gemstone craving. When viewed in natural light, they are seen as zesty greens and blues. And they come alive at night (under incandescent light) with delicious red tones. Perfect for anyone wanting to unleash their alter-egos! 


If you are tempted by the rarity of a gemstone then a natural Alexandrite would be the perfect choice. Their rarity is reflected in their price. Jump between moss green and deep purple shades, making this intriguing gemstone a real conversation starter.


Lab created Alexandrite is generally more affordable than natural. These are created like their name says, in a lab! They grow under the same chemical ingredients as natural gems, only at a kinder to the earth, and accelerated rate. Wanting a transitioning Alexandrite from teals to brighter, more vivid purple? Lab would be the perfect option for you.

ABOUT alexandrites

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

With a hardness of 8.5 on the MOH’s scale, Alexandrite is a durable gemstone. That however doesn’t mean they dont require some special attention. Removing your rings when washing the dishes, changing a tire, lifting weights or activities where accidents to your ring may be prone, we recommend removing your Alexandrite ring.


To keep your Alexandrite looking delicious, we also recommend the soapy bowl method. Just warm water with some soap and a baby toothbrush will do the job perfectly.
