This bezel set emerald cut Tanzanite is part of Kirsten’s Corner Signature Collection. A beautifully saturated tanzanite is set in a custom bezel, attached to the truncated sides a 2mm flat chain seamlessly creates the necklace. The tanzanite was purchase in Tanzania by me and has been waiting for its purpose. This elegant setting suits the stone perfectly.
The necklace is 16 1/2” in length. It weighs 8.6 grams and is set in 14 karat yellow gold. the chain is marked 14k Italy. The stone measures 10.75mm x 6.6mm and is a 2.96 carat stone, weighed before mounted. It is a beautiful stone with a violet blue cast, moderately strong saturation and exhibits magical trichroic qualities that tanzanites are know for. It has excellent clarity and no inclusions can be seen when looped. A gorgeous stone.
Tanzanite is one of the only trichroic gemstones, meaning it has the ability to display three colors within the same gemstone. As light passes though the gemstone, it vibrates in different planes, which causes the stone to show a different color depending on from which axis you are looking at it. The three colors seen in this tanzanite are shades of blue, violet and red. This makes photographing a challenge as it displays so many colors. A pleasure to wear.
