Are they Sapphire? Tanzanite? No- these awesome earrings feature natural Iolite. Iolite is strongly dichroic, meaning each gem contains two colors, a bluish violet and colorless. These gems were cut to ideal proportions on the blue axis of the crystal, resulting in superior sparkle and a good depth of color. It should be noted that these hail from the new Tanzanian find, where the Iolite has a stronger blue hue, whereas the older finds in India and Sri Lanka are more grey-purple. We set these beauties in 14k gold bar style settings that complement the color nicely without overpowering the size of the stones.
Details: 14k yellow gold earrings with 1.50cttw round Iolite from Tanzania.
