by dnzs » Jul 14, 2019 Hi All. I found a nice Alexandrite ring, that I want to give as an engagement ring. I am a beginner to alexandrite, and am very nervous about paying online for such a stone. I feel like i'm in the "too good to be true" area!! I have attached some images of the ring, and I'd love to get some opinion. Off the bat, you can see that there are heavy inclusions in the ring. I think that is a good thing, for determining that it is indeed real, but maybe there are too many inclusions? I do like the way it looks. It feel more unique. The Stone is 1.07 carat, and it looks like it has a very good colour change (...is it nice colour change??) The stone does not have a lab certificate, but it will be sent to GIA upon purchase. The cost of the ring is USD 3300. I am worried that for a 1.07 carat, with such a nice colour change, that the prices don't add up! I don't mind the inclusions, but I just want to make sure i'm not drastically overpaying. This forum has been really helpful in my search for understanding more about gems etc. so thank you!
