June Birthstone: Alexandrite

As the lesser known June birthstone, alexandrite is a unique choice to celebrate a special birthday. Its stand out colour changing qualities make it an excellent gemstone to surprise someone special. Take a look at our pick of the best alexandrite designs on R&O.

Alexandrite was originally discovered in the 1830’s in Russia’s Ural Mountains. Often described as “emerald by day, ruby by night” this unique gem is exceptionally rare and extremely valuable. While natural alexandrite is hard to find, lab created variants hold the same chemical composition and are a great way to surprise someone with this modern stone.  

Since the discovery of alexandrite, it has been considered a token of good luck and is believed to strengthen intuition and creativity. Alexandrite is also believed to encourage romance and hope. Its continuously changing colours remind us that life is not always what it seems to be. 

This classic tennis bracelet is a timeless gift for someone special. The stunning alexandrite sits on a Sterling silver bracelet which is perfect to finish off an evening look.
