Euterpe, daughter of Mnemnosyne and Zeus, this Muse was known as the giver of pleasure. This necklace set evokes Euterpe's divine power. 39.6 carats of excellent quality blue iolite briolettes grace this set, with the saturated blue that gives this stone its trade name - water sapphire. Most iolite ranges between silvery grey and blue, often in the same stone; these particular pieces of iolite are a consistent sapphire blue. With excellent clarity and careful faceting, they look like frozen drops of midnight velvet sky. The central briolette is an incredible 18 carats in size, with the other briolettes graduating from 2.7 to 3.1 carats each. Wired on 18K gold wire, the stones fall from a beautiful Italian chain of 18K gold...not vermeil, not plate, not fill - this necklace set contains significant 18K gold. Matching earrings, which feature a length of chain finished with an iolite briolette, complete the set.
The necklace measures 16.5" in length and finishes with a significantly sized 18K lobster clasp for ease of manipulation. The central stone, measuring 25mm in length and 15mm in width, adds 1 1/8" to the length. The earrings fall 2" from 14K gold slender kidney wires; if you prefer these on 14K ball posts, just let me know...no additional charge for that switch.
This amazing set of fine jewelry ships in a presentation box.
