Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Decided to keep
I love this ring on my finger. That being said I can agree it lacks luster and I've been back and forth on my decision to return or keep. I have another Alexandrite that is much prettier but I still love this ring. I'd like to have appraised. I can tell you, this ring had it been set in white gold would have been much more beautiful. I was hanging on and waiting for more reviews out of curiousity. Overall I decided to keep and I wear it often. I do not get comments on it which is usually a deal breaker for me. I only hope when I get appraised I'm not going to be angry with QVC. I expect quality for things this costly.

My husband's birthstone is Alexandrite & mine is diamond.
January 11, 2016 is our 47th anniversary.
I thought this would be the perfect gift for me, since my husband wanted me to pick out something I wanted.
I was upset when I took it out of the "plastic bag" because there wasn't much of a sparkle to it at all.
I put it on this morning to admire it for awhile. I put it back into the bag for now.
I honestly want to keep it. So, I am taking a few days to make up my mind.
There were only 2 sizes left a 6 & 9. I chose the 9 to go on my index finger. The 6 is too small for me & it is too big to be a pinky ring.
I really love it, just have to really decide what I want to do.

My husband's birthstone is Alexandrite, so I was happy to see this offered as a Lunchtime Special at a reduced price with Easy Pay option. I like band rings as well for everyday wear, because of their low profile with no big prongs. That said... I definitely should have headed the opinions of other reviewers! Not only are the Alexandrite stones in my ring washed out (they look like cheap rhinestones), but the make of this ring is AWFUL! The gold is to thin it's painful at the top of my finger under the stones. Under a loupe, the prongs are literally twisted in different directions, with a maximum of only two prongs holding each stone. The black rhodium plating is ugly. I'm guessing it was supposed to make the colored stones look less like gray water? The only thing the black background succeeds in doing is emphasizing the fact that the stones don't even match well for color. And the diamond? What diamonds? If all of that weren't bad enough, this ring runs small. I normally wear a 7-1/2 on my right hand ring finger, and the size 8 literally cut into my skin. Ouch! I'll wait, save my money, and eventually find a better Alexandrite ring somewhere else. I'd rather be out under $10 in total shipping than $300+ for this ring.

I have been looking for years to get an alexandrite ring and thought I had found it in this ring. That is until I received it in the mail. Talk about shocked! The stones are so dark and dull. They're a charcoal color with a hint of green. No sparkle or color changing qualities in this ring! I'm so disappointed in this ring! It's going back!!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Mizzshep Disappointed!!
I have seen true Alexandrite and could not wait to get this ring... I was so excited. Needless to say, once I received the ring I was very disappointed. I love the ring but it does NOT change color. I held it in all types of light and it went from light green to grey....not an alexandrite! It is on its way back.

I was surprised at how dull the color was in real life. On TV this ring went from a beautiful pale green to a deep violet. When I tried it on, the ring looked dull, more like a grey color. It looked rather small and didn't have the presence it had on TV. So disappointed to send it back.
