This truly outstanding 10.1 carat Tanzanite center stone spectacularly showcases the beautiful violet blue color for which the stone is known. The intense color of this Tanzanite is further magnified by three tiers of dazzling white diamonds surrounded by luxurious 18 kt white gold. This extraordinary and opulent show-stopper is sure to turn heads. The necklace comes complete with a 20 inch 18 KT white gold chain. NOTE: This tanzanite beauty can be purchased in 2 alternative configurations:
- As a pendant without a chain. If you already own the perfect chain and don’t want another. To learn more, go to item P-10 under the “Pendant” sort in the product menu.
- As a necklace, but with a 22 inch completely adjustable 18KT white gold chain. You may find the adjustable chain to be extremely practical. The pendant can be positioned so it lays exactly where you want with any outfit to perfectly complete your look. To learn more, go to item “N-10-22-Adj” in the “Necklace” sort of the product menu.
Gordon’s Design Notes: I first came across a vendor specializing in tanzanite gemstones at the Thai Gem Show in Bangkok. I immediately became enchanted by the rich blue hue with a hint of purple of this amazing 10.1 carat tanzanite gemstone. I had to have it. I decided such a regal stone must be conspicuously displayed, so I chose to place it on a throne atop 3 steps of sparkling diamonds. This necklace is impossible to miss.
