Pearls and moonstones have been known since ancient times, but the history of alexandrite starts only a couple of centuries ago. The stone was found in the 19th century in Russia at an emerald mining site. Due to similarities in color, the stone was initially mistaken for an emerald. However, it turned out that the mineral was harder than emerald. Plus, under artificial lighting, it changed its color to red. In, 1834, the gem was given to Tsar Alexander II for his 16th birthday. Since that, it became officially known as alexandrite. Alexandrite quickly gained the fame of or a royal stone due to its rarity and luxurious look.

Pearl, on the other hand, are not that rare in nature. Anyone who has decent diving skills can try to catch a pearl-bearing clam. That being said, the traditional method of pearl mining is now a thing of the past. Today, the overwhelming majority of these gems are cultivated. Specialized pearl farms grow organic stones in a controlled environment. One clam can produce a dozen pearls, although recent trends focus on quality rather than quantity. It takes about seven years to grow a medium-sized pearl, and all these years a mollusk must be looked after and turned over to ensure a round shape of a pearl. This painstaking process is the reason why pearls are not the cheapest of gemstones. That being said, the price for pearls that grow in the wild is even loftier.
