Alexandrite and Moonstone Ring
Our alexandrite and moonstone ring is made with an 8mm round lab grown alexandrite gemstone accented with natural moonstones set into a 925 sterling silver setting. Alexandrite stones change color under different lighting. Moonstone has flashes of blue. Perfect for a June birthstone gift.
Alexandrite is a pleochroic gemstone which means the stone exhibits a color change when viewed at different angles or under different lighting such as daylight and incandescent lighting. The pleochrism effect is caused by the way the gemstone absorbs rays of light.
There are two types of lab grown alexandrite: chrysoberyl and corundum. Our alexandrite jewelry collection is created with alexandrite lab corundum that has been infused with either chromium or vanadium to provide the color change. The stones will change from a dark purple to a violet-pink purple to a bluish purple. Some stones will have a touch of teal blue under daylight.
Alexandrite stones are said to help with self control and discipline, helping the wearer strive for excellence. Russian legend believes alexandrite stones promote good luck, fortune and love.
Moonstone is a natural gemstone in the feldspar family of minerals that is well known for its blue shimmering flashes of color. This shimmering effect is called adularescence. Moonstone has a unique crystal structure that creates this optical phenomena. Alternating layers of albite inclusions mixed with layers of orthoclase create a whitish-blue sheen of color as light enters the stone and bounces back. Some moonstone will display tiny dots of rainbow colors.
Moonstone can be found in many places around the world, with the most popular deposits in India and Sri Lanka. It is the birthstone for those born in June.
Lab Grown Gemstones:
A lab grown gemstone is a man-made gemstone that is created using the same chemical composition, crystal structure and optical and physical properties that the natural stone is composed of.
