    Thank you SO much for your detailed information and for making it so simple to understand! I have been overwhelmed with all the information online but you have simplified it. Thank you!


    I will contact the NY office today and find out if they have other locations or at least a referral of where I can go. What is the appropriate price for the testing?


    I will update you as soon as I can.


    Thank you, Lareef... very much :)

    Hello...I want to get it tested. Currently looking for where to go in the Chicago area. Hopefully I will be able to update you soon!


    Thank you very much :)

    Hello... thank you for your reply. I hope you are doing well today!


    All I know is that in the late 60's/early 70's a family member exchanged it with another family member, for a ring with diamonds. It has been kept in a safe until recently when I inherited it. I was told the original price was equivalent to the diamond ring which was around $4,000. It is 14k gold.


    I am thinking of getting it reset so I can wear it, the setting is very high. I have a picture of the setting (underneath).
    People are advising me to get it tested before making any changes.


    Thank you.... have a great day! :)

    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!
