Alexandrite jewelry has a unique quality - it will appear blue-green during daylight, but then will change to a deep red at night. The more drastic the change, the rarer and more valuable the stone is. The alexandrite gemstone was originally found in the Ural Mountains of Russia, and is named in honor of Tsar Alexander II. It's said to have inspired feelings of good health and good luck.
Caring for your alexandrite jewelry is a simple process that will ensure that your gemstone maintains its beautiful sparkle. The best way to keep your gem clean is to bring it to your local Helzberg Diamonds store for a complimentary cleaning and inspection. At home, you can brighten your alexandrite jewelry by gentling wiping the gemstone with a jewelry polishing cloth and warm water.
