DH’s ring has a lab-grown Alexandrite.  It is AMAZING.  I love it.  I made it 🙂  Because it was lab, I was able to cast it right in the carved wax and silver.

My dear, sweet (today anyway LOL) S/O bought me a beautiful, natural, pear shaped alexandrite to have set in an e-ring, but we (read: “I”) are having so many issues with finding just the right ring setting for it. It’s such a special stone that means so much to me (because it’s his birthstone and that he listened to what I’d said I would like and purchasing it), that I don’t want to put it in just any setting. I have some ideas but we seem to keep hitting roadblock after roadblock with the designs I like and the stone sitting up way too high for my liking, or the setting not being deep enough to accomodate it the way I’d like. We have looked at some custom options, and they are all quite pricey, so we’re mulling over options to – instead – set it in a very nice two-in-one ring vs. having/wearing an ering and wedding band, just have one ring vs. the expense of two rings. Once we get somewhere with the setting, I’ll be sure to post pics. Until then, I can only share this picture of the stone, provided by the retailer, showing the color change. My heart truly warms with love every time I look at this picture because I love both of these colors so much (teal and mauve).
