Delight in the allure of a 2.61 carat round Russian Alexandrite, a gem that carries the legacy of a nation known for its profound influence on this rare gemstone. Russia's history with Alexandrites traces back to their discovery in the Ural Mountains in the 1830s, giving birth to their romantic nickname, "emerald by day, ruby by night."Russian Alexandrites hold a unique place in gemology, celebrated for their exceptional color change from vibrant green to deep red under different lighting conditions. Currently, the color changes tend to be found in the purple hue and not red. It is worth noting the scarcity of Russian Alexandrites is attributed to several factors: including the geological specificity of the Ural deposits, political and historical disruptions, and the limited availability of sizable, high-quality specimens. Thus, possessing a sizable, round Russian Alexandrite like this 2.61 carat gem is a testament to both the gem's history and the challenges faced in acquiring such a treasure.
I found The Rare Gem doing hours of research on the perfect gem for my engagement ring and decided on Alexandrite for its beauty and unique color changing qualities. It was important for us to buy from a reliable and trustworthy source and The Rare Gem was just that.
Loved the alexandrite ring I got from the rare gem. It looked even better in person than on the website. I had a lot of difficulty finding a jeweler that had alexandrite and I was very happy with the selection that Justin had.
If you're in the market for an exceptional heirloom quality piece of jewelry - Justin and his team have you covered. Incredibly satisfied with the final results, and hopefully the first of many pieces for my fiancée-to-be
Great friendly service. They were very accommodating with my scheduling constraints. They were very knowledgeable and took their time with me. They were genuinely interested in my satisfaction. Their website provides a great education on Alexandrite.
I had an amazing experience working with Justin and his team. I'm so glad I found the Rare Gem, because I was having a hard time sourcing a quality Russian stone prior. The whole process was a breeze. Justin was extremely knowledgeable and responsive and offered several options.
We were looking for a padparadscha sapphire for an engagement ring and had a wonderful experience working with Justin. He was knowledgeable, fair, and was always on the lookout for a sapphire that would suit our needs. We would highly recommend him!
