A pair of Edwardian earrings with very large "alexandrite" stones that shift from grayish teal to violet depending on the lighting conditions. The mountings are beautifully handmade 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.
