The sensational Tanzanite & Diamond pendant displays a stellar example of December’s birthstone.
With an architectural design in 14K white gold, this tanzanite sings in a fabulous violet-blue hue. This is a color that turns heads! A fabulous cushion cut sets off the blue colors in this 7.22 ct. tanzanite.
Tanzanite is well known for showing off different colors depending on the crystal directions when viewed. This is called pleochroic. Therefore, the cut of a tanzanite affects the color you see. Per the Gemological Institute of America, “Due to the gem’s strong pleochroism, fashioned examples typically show a mix of both blue and violet colors in a wide range of tones. As with most colored gemstones, paler colors are more available and affordable than saturated ones.”
Only excellent craftsmanship would do for such a special stone. Here we have a slightly Art Deco feel in 14K white gold and hand-set with over 1/2 ct. (.54 ct.) diamonds.
