Pardon me if I am in the wrong place but I stumbled across your page while researching online. I have really enjoyed reading the posts!
I have inherited a very old gold ring and was told that it may possibly be a genuine alexandrite. I am sharing pictures here of the colors. In natural light it is a blue/teal color (more so with the eye than camera) and indoor lighting it is a purplish color. It is quite beautiful!
Please advise me as to where I should go to find out if this is a true and genuine alexandrite. I live near the Chicago, IL USA area.
Would love to hear from you!
