This neck piece shows off both the stone and the Filigree made in Fine Silver within a Sterling Silver freeform frame. This piece rather than having the usual sort of gemstone suspended from the bottom of the filigree has a Heart shaped Tanzanite faceted pear shaped gemstone weighing 2.18 carats total weight.
The color of the stone is the classic tanzanite with violet blue and red flashes typical of this trichroic gem. It sparkles so much more than the photographs illustrate and the Bright white of the depletion gilded filigree is complimented by the setting of the stone which was made from 14K gold made from reclaimed pieces and forged into the bezel setting.
The freeform piece is reminiscent of a Genie's lamp in its shape which really adds to the character of the neckpiece. It measures 1.5 x 1.5 inches.
I recommend a sterling silver neck chain with two small lobster clasps; one at each end or small hooks so that the neckpiece can be easily attached or detached at will. A fine chain through the loops on each side of the top would also work well.
