This is the second time I have tried to order this ring. The first time the ring was beautiful with lots of sparkle, however, one of the white sapphires had fallen out.This time I ordered it, the "white" sapphires are more of a grey colour and lack sparkle and luster. The middle alexandrite looks like it may have a crack in it. I noticed another reviewer reported this so I am wondering if received the one she returned? The setting itself is very nice and appears to be well done. I think it would be nice if Generations 1912 would do a better job of ensuring they use quality stones. The price was good, however if the ring isn't up to standards then really is it a good price? I haven't decided if I will try to have TSC replace the ring or I will just return it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I really did not expect that I would be returning this ring, but sadly, that is what I did.The overall look was just dull and underwhelming. It's hard to believe but there was not much sparkle in any of the gemstones. I did find the setting to be very comfortable and like the profile of this ring.

I ordered this ring in the gold plate. It has a lovely setting and the stones are a good size. There is no major change in colour but I kept it as I really like it. Plus, for the price, you can't go wrong!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Alexandrite???, In Your Dreams!!
By Pace Bunny
from Montreal, QC
If I could give zero stars, this "Alexandrite" ring would get it!A true Russian Alexandrite is also called a "stop and go" stone due to its change of colour from reddish to green hues in various light. This ring has none of that. Its colour is a flat, pale almost washed out green, with no contrasts whatsoever.The workmanship isn't that special, plus, the centre stone in the ring I received has a Large Diaginal CRACK running through the stone!! The crack is visible without the aide of a loop. This cracking of the stone must have happened when it was being cut. So that seems to indicate it was machine cut with no human inspection done. One of the shoulder stones is so included as to appear almost gray in colour. Where Was Your Quality Control Mr. W.?? Needless to say this ring has gone back to TSC and of course I won't be paying their "restocking" fee.In future I will take anything said on Generation 1912 with a huge grain of salt. Once burned, twice shy!

Finally - a gorgeous Russian Alexandrite
from Medicine Hat, Alberta
I wrote a review on this ring a while back. I wasn't thrilled with the washed-out colour of the alexandrite but wrote that I would keep it anyhow because I want a genuine piece of Russian Alexandrite. That was about the third ring I had ordered as I kept returning them all due to poor quality stones. After looking at the one I was going to keep, it just didn't feel right as I wasn't happy, so I ordered two more!! Finally, I received a ring that I am very pleased with. The alexandrite is actually green. With the other rings, you could barely tell the difference between the alexandrite and the white sapphires. I would love to own a much larger stone, but I guess that isn't going to happen. As for other reviewers saying that the stone changes colour; I'd like to know what they're on!! This stone simply does NOT change colour. I've ordered at least five of them and not once have I seen any colour changing. I have on immitation alexandrite, however, not once on the real stone. I not a great fan of this stone, but since it's suppose to be rare, I wanted one in my collection.
Let the compliments begin!
from ST C
I've always been a big fan of Generations 1912 and have several pieces but I don't recall any other piece getting more compliments than I've had with this ring. I ordered the rhodium plate, love the sparkle and have been wearing it non-stop since I recieved it. The colour of the stones I have do change with different lighting and is very noticable on the larger stone. Regardless to this the workmanship is gorgeous and I do not hesitate to recommend it.
from mulmur ont.
received my ring today & what a beauty she is. i will admit i was expecting the setting to be far to large for my hand as i have small, fine hands.but when i put the ring on all i said was hello!!,she is prefect.although i was a little upset that the stone was not quite the same as we were told mine dose not have a very clear colour change, if any but,in saying that the colour is a pretty minty colour which is so uncommon. love love love it.
from Alberta canada
I loved the look of this ring. I did have a problem with the size but true to their word they have offered to resize. I am waiting for this to come back so i can enjoy this.
This is the second time I have purchased this ring and what a difference, the first time there were so many inclusions in the ring it looked like the stones were broke in half, the only thing I wonder about is why it does not say Russian Alexandrite on my order page and why I cannot see any other colors in my stones, I have done some research on this stone and it says that all Russian Alexandrite has flaws, I will take it to my jewelry store and have them look at it to confirm if it is the true stone.
