J.P. Morgan was obsessed with collecting new gemstones, and the billionaire banker/financier famously funded many successful adventures in search of new and wondrous treasures. One such discovery, the chic, champagne-pink morganite stone, was even named for the man himself. Though he lived a full life, Morgan died without knowing that one of the greatest gemstone finds of the 20th century was out there waiting for him. Today, we’re bringing J.P. closer than he’s ever been to the treasure he never knew.
The Lost Safari Necklace combines 130 carats of the great man’s namesake morganite with 110 carats of rare, violet-blue Tanzanite, the now-famous gemstone discovered in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro and is still described as the biggest and most important find of the last 100 years. By bringing together morganite and tanzanite, the Lost Safari Necklace is a perfect pairing of color and quality, making it all the more unfortunate that J.P. never funded a trip to Africa.
We’re confident that Morgan would pay big money for this combination. But, unlike Morgan, we knew exactly where to find a supply of tanzanite, so we can invite you to add the Lost Safari Necklace to your collection. It’s not often you can enjoy a luxury that was denied to a billionaire, so we encourage you to take advantage while you can.
