June Birthstone: Alexandrite

$ 42.00 $ 60.00

Alexandrite is a relatively recent addition to the gem world, as it was first discovered in 1831.  However, it immediately because famous for the dramatic color change it shows depending on the light.  In daylight, it shows a lovely blue-green - but under artificial light it looks red!

While these two-tone glass drops do not have such a dramatic change, their lovely blue and green display a fascinating change as well.  Look from one angle and you will see the two vividly distinct colors.  From another, a blending of the two, reminiscent of the changing colors of the sea.

Are you tired of having to polish your silver? Tarnish-resistant Argentium sterling silver is easy maintenance, with a brighter, whiter color than traditional sterling silver. And, it is 100% recycled! (Not only is mining terrible for the environment in various ways, working with recycled silver uses only 5% as much energy (and emissions) compared with virgin silver ore. Now that’s eco-friendly!)

Best of all, you don’t have to worry about allergic reactions. Naturally hypoallergenic, Argentium silver is nickel-free.

Your jewelry will arrive in a classic white jewelry box tied with a ribbon.


Sunshine in a drop of glass

You are unique and original, and your jewelry should be too! Each drop of glass is handmade in the artist’s backyard studio in Berkeley, California. Using a giant magnifying glass to focus sunshine, recycled bottles and stained glass were melted into these translucent, flowing drops under the open sky! No pieces are exactly alike.


Care Instructions

Polish with a soft cloth, such as an eyeglasses or jewelry polishing cloth.  Never use tissue or paper towels, as the fibers may scratch the metal.

If needed, wash with mild soap in warm water and dry completely with a soft cloth.  (Moisture is a leading cause of tarnish, so never put your jewelry away while still damp!)


Lifetime Guarantee

You shouldn’t merely be satisfied, I want you to LOVE your jewelry!  Feel free to include special instructions with your order in the notes section during checkout - request short or long droplets, bubble-free glass drops, a date you need it by, or anything else.  Contact me with any problems, and I will repair or replace any broken pieces free of charge.
