Celebrate a special June birthday, anniversary or other special occasion with the mesmerizing June birthstone – alexandrite. Our collection of birthstones features gemstones ethically-sourced from around the globe and set in an assortment of jewelry styles, all designed and crafted here in the Texas Hill Country.
The alexandrite birthstone features subtly shifting hues of color for June. Named after Alexander II, Czar of Russia, alexandrite was discovered on this ruler’s birthday in the early 1830’s. Alexandrite is the color changing variety of the mineral chrysoberyl. It changes from blue-green in the sun or fluorescent light to red-purple in lamp or candlelight. This bright gem creates a stunning statement when contrasted with our sterling silver and 14K gold designs.
Our alexandrite jewelry comes in a collection of June birthstone rings, charms, pendants and earrings. Crafted in a variety of styles from our classic Spanish scroll motifs to the swirls and flourishes of our Cherished Birthstone Rings and touches of twisted wire in some of our other favorite looks. So whether you want something simple or like the intricate scrolling styles we’re known for, there’s an alexandrite setting you’re sure to love for many years to come.
Browse the collection and fall in love with this beautifully, ever-shifting purple gemstone. Wear it to represent a special love or to celebrate your birthday or the birthday of those you hold dear. No matter the meaning, alexandrite sparkles and shines to make a timeless statement you’ll cherish. Learn more about June’s birthstone with our online Birthstone Guide. Still have questions?
