This Tanzanite pendant was procured via a jewelry estate purchase. The tanzanite is of a deep purple-blue color that is rare in these larger sizes. Make sure and play the video above and see how the precise faceting brings out the deep flashes of color. This is NOT your mass produced tanzanite that you see in so many of the chain stores and big online retailers.
The stone is suspended from a custom designed pendant mounting on a articulated hinged setting so the pendant lays perfectly when worn. This is a conversation starting piece of jewelry, a true work of art and a must see in person.
