This remarkable pendant is a reflection of the inspiration that nature has on the beautiful creations that man can make in its honor. A mirror has been held up to nature by skillfully carving out of this tanzanite a unique floral pattern. At its center is a leaf shape from which flowing lines blossom outward to the edge of the tanzanite. The 25.96 carat gemstone takes on a feathered look as the edges of the gem are serrated and staggered from one spot to the next. The color of the stone is on par with the uniqueness of its shape. The hues of the tanzanite shifts gradually from a medium blue green to a royal blue and in the middle where the two colors transition it takes on an iridescent aqua blue hue. The translucency of the gem and its natural inclusions add something extra to the ethereal beauty of this gem. The mounting that the center stone is set in mimics the shape that the gem has been carved into, with lines of gold breaking the surrounding gold into segments. The front surface of the mounting is set with pave diamonds that continue all around the tanzanite and then ascend up the length of the bail in a single row. The diamonds have G color, are VS in clarity and have a combined weight of 0.82 carats. The pendant hangs from a decorative 18K white gold cable chain that has a rope pattern incorporated into each individual link.
