Tanzanite is a stone that has gained popularity as a flat back stone in recent years. It used to mostly be cut as faceted pointy back stones. I’m so pleased that I can now get hold of it for these one of a kind pendants! The rose cut (faceted) purple gem is set on a roughly textured fused silver surround inspired by Cornish rocks, which gives it a rustic and almost industrial feel. The silver has a black patina that has been brushed back and polished on the high spots, all to add extra depth and sutble sparkle to this fabulous pendant.
This pendant is lovely teamed up with a few others, either on separate chains or on the same in a cluster, as in one of the pictures.
The pendant is hung on a 24″ long snake chain, giving the pendant a contemporary look. You can also request a different length chain if you prefer.
It was made using sterling silver and Tanzanite and measures approximately 33mm in length, including bail, and 15.5mm in width at its widest point.
Silver hallmarked with my makers mark at Birmingham Assay Office, according to UK regulations.
