Vintage 1.5 Carat Tsavorite Pendant in 14K Yellow Gold Setting
Discovered by British Gem Prospector Cambell Bridges in 1967, this Gemstone gained immediate popularity. It was Tiffany and Company who was largely responsible for the Gemstones popularity after being set in many pieces by Tiffany. The name Tsavorite was proposed by Tiffany and Company president Henry Platt in honor of Tsavo East National Park in Kenya.
This is a beautiful example of why this Gemstone is so popular. The deep but radiant green color rivals that of fine Emerald. A compelling color that sets it apart in the Gemstone World.
This piece dates to around 1975. It is a goodly sized stone, measuring 7mm in diameter and 4.7mm in depth. It is 1.5 (1 1/2) Carats as weighed out of the setting. It is hosted by a 14K Yellow Gold setting, and suspended from a 19 inch 10K Italian made Yellow Gold Singapore Style Chain. Just a beautiful piece and a wonderful addition to any lady's collection of fine jewelry.
