This beautiful gem stone and 14K gold confection will encircle your neckline with precious diamonds, tanzanite, and simplicity. A lovely piece of fine jewelry, destined to become a favorite. This piece lays beautifully on the neck ... it's easy to wear and oh, so feminine.
The sinuous cast links have a nice solid weight and are set with 26 oval tanzanite stones and 27 diamonds. The clear blue-violet stones catch the light, and the yellow gold deep settings have an elegantly detailed mille grain edge. The 'leaf' shapes that hold the diamonds are washed with white gold on the tops only, not the sides or the bottom, which complements the sparkles. The links are solid, feminine and curvy without being dainty.
Tanzanite was named by Tiffany & Co. after its country of origin, Tanzania. It is a rare gem stone, found at only one place on earth, the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro.
CONDITION is grand, with no problems to report. The clasp is marked 585, the European standard mark for 14K gold, and the links, which have been acid tested, are solid 14K gold, the tops of the leaf-shaped details are plated with white gold. I would guesstimate a 1980's date. Measures 17" in length.
Pretty enough to dress up, and simple enough to add a classy look to even the simplest outfit. This necklace is timeless and classic in its design that will stand the test of time and is destined to be handed down with love. Enjoy!
Your necklace will arrive in a handsome fitted box, suitable for gifting and safe storage.
