Therefore, take necessary precautions while making the purchase of a genuine alexandrite pendant.

Cuts in Alexandrite Pendants

Measuring an 8.5 on the MOH hardness scale, alexandrite is easily cut in many different styles and shapes for jewelry items. For pendants the most common shape is oval. The Oval shape gets paired with other stones very easily. Other cuts like pear, cushion, square and round are available too. Any cut can be selected but it is important to note that a round cut results in weight loss of the stone and as a result is often less preferred.

Tips to buy an Alexandrite Pendant

If you planning to buy an alexandrite pendant, the main focus should be on the stone itself. The color truly separates it from all other precious and semi-precious gems. Secondly, look for inclusions and flaws. Choose the stone with negligible flaws to maximize its beauty and achieve the desired result. Third is the selection of metal. Generally, sterling silver and platinum are used to give a distinguished look to the pendant. Be sure that the hook through which the pendant is hung on the chain is thick enough to hold the weight of the stones used in the design. It should easily support the weight of the stones to prevent it from loss.
