A simple c1940 pendant necklace with a large simulated alexandrite set in 14K gold. Alexandrite was discovered in Russia in the 19th century and was prized for color-changing properties and scarcity. In the early 20th century a convincing simulant was invented by growing synthetic sapphires and lacing them with vanadium, which produces the color changing effect. This stone subtly shifts from magenta in indoor lighting to pinkish-violet in outdoor lighting.
