Happy accident and the great blue wonder
Tsavorite and sapphire in 14K gold mingle with diamonds for the ultimate luxurious gift
Sometimes the most amazing things happen by accident. Like the discovery of tsavorite, a rare green garnet that burns a deep emerald green. Considered a collector’s gem, tsavorite was discovered in 1967 by Scottish gemologist, Campbell Bridges while he was walking in Tanzania. According to locals, Bridges was charged by a buffalo and avoided the animal by diving into a gully. Looking around, he noticed striking green stones glinting in the sunlight. He introduced this stone to world, naming it after the Tsavo River in Africa.
The perfect pairing for this verdant gem? Why magnificent blue sapphire of course. After all, you need a gem equally as impressive to hold its own with tsavorite. Famed for its brilliance and rich blue color, sapphire is one of the most valuable of all gemstones and has been a favorite among royal families for thousands of years.
Together, these gems are stunning. Our designer has mingled sapphire and tsavorite pears and rounds in an artful arrangement that evokes spring foliage at its most lush. White diamonds add just the right touch of sparkle. Set in gleaming 14K yellow gold.
