A stunning tanzanite trillion custom pendant by Clay Copeland. Tanzanite is one of the December birthstones. We know Sagittarian and Capricorn birthdays tend to get forgotten in the holiday rush. So, if you’ve got a birthday around Christmas you definitely deserve something special this year and this pendant really fits the bill!
What Makes An Exceptional Tanzanite
Tanzanites are pleochroic gems. In other words, they show different colors when viewed in different crystal directions. In the case of tanzanites, you see violet or purple in one direction and blue in another. For this reason, cutting the stone is of utmost importance. Cutters waste a lot more of the rough stone to show off the prized strong blue-violet colors. So, these bluer stones are pricier. In contrast, they cut off a lot less of the stone to get the violet/purple colors to show through. Therefore, you see a lot more of the less expensive lavender, violet and purple shades than the velvety blue-violet colors of this tanzanite.
A Classic Tanzanite Pendant
This is a pendant for the ages. This tanzanite trillion custom pendant is designed and hand-crafted by Clay Copeland at Copeland Jewelers in Austin, Texas. Clay’s minimalist design assures you of a piece of jewelry that will be in style for generations. Exceptionally made in 14K white gold. Beautiful on this white gold collar or a white gold chain. Or, make your style statement with it on a leather or rubber cord.
This stunning pendant’s gorgeous blue-violet tanzanite is the perfect size at 6.18 carats. Big enough for the exceptional color to pop. But not overwhelming. The tanzanite’s trillion shape is perfectly accented with the small diamond (.10cts.) on top.
