This beautiful spider web-inspired necklace design is just waiting to grace your neckline. Two rows of dazzling near colorless diamonds and mirrored 18 karat white gold showcase the stunning violet-blue color of the enticing 4.54 carat tanzanite center stone. You’ll find this necklace extraordinary. Not only is it beautiful, but with a chain that’s completely adjustable up to 22 inches in length, you’ll find it extremely practical. The pendant can be positioned so it lays exactly where you want to perfectly complete your look. NOTE: The pendant can be purchased separately if you already own the perfect chain. Look for item P-11 under the “Pendant” sort in the product menu.

Gordon’s Design Notes: I was mesmerized by a spider working the middle of a web built among blue flowers in my garden one summer day. This picture eventually served as inspiration for this pendant. I used diamonds to represent the threads of the web. My original design called for the space between the tanzanite and the diamond threads to be open. However, the goldsmith misread my instructions and filled in the spaces with polished gold. I decided I liked the modified look and decided to leave it.            

Design Inspiration: Amy

Price: $13,900 NOTE: The pendant can be bought separately. For more information, go to the PENDANTS sort and click on item P-11.

When dressing, fine jewelry should always be the last item put on and the first item taken off to minimize the gemstones coming into contact with perfume, lotions, hair products, etc.
Care Continued:
Protect your jewelry from impact against hard surfaces and avoid contact with abrasive surfaces. All gemstones, including diamonds, can chip, scratch, or abrade under the right circumstances.
Care Continued:
Tanzanite is particularly vulnerable to hard blows, so it should be worn with care. Avoid ultrasonic and steam cleaning.
Care Continued:
With wear, rhodium plating can thin to the point where a yellowish tinge may show through. Periodic re-coating with rhodium will revive the original bright white color. Re-plating does not damage the gemstones.
The best method for cleaning all your jewelry is to soak each item in a mixture of lukewarm water and gentle dish washing liquid followed by a very light cleaning with a soft child’s toothbrush.
Cleaning Continued:
Place the item(s) in a fine mesh strainer and rinse to remove the soap. Gently place each item on a lint-free cloth and softly pat them dry. See the Education & Resources Section of the Website for a more detailed explanation.
