Clusters of tanzanite faceted rondelles shine nicely from Tila glass and sterling silver beads in this adjustable 16"-20" necklace. Tanzanite is a unique blue-purple variety of zoisite found only in Tanzania and made popular by Tiffany & Co. starting in the 1960s. Tanzanite gemstones - even those with inclusions such as the rondelles in this necklace - are valuable because the gemstone is so rare and mined only in select areas. Tanzanite is the second most popular blue gemstone, behind sapphire. The glass tiles with a blue-green metallic sheen are made by the Japanese Miyuki company, famous for its remarkable seedbeads. The necklace can be adjusted from a shorter length closer to the collar bones to a longer length, as shown in the images, through fastening the sterling silver marquise shaped trigger clasp in a different circle link of the sterling silver chain.

Cost: $98.00 USD

  • tanzanite gemstone faceted rondelles
  • Japanese Miyuki Tila glass beads
  • sterling silve beads
  • sterling silver components
  • sterling silver chain and trigger clasp

Care & cleaning: Beading cord may be frayed or severed through hard jerks or prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store necklace flat when not in use to prevent stretching or fraying cord. Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on metal.

The materials and cord in this necklace are robust to most tugs and pulls, but care should be taken to prevent hard impacts which can damage the glass tiles. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
