This magical necklace glows with an intense violet hue that reminds us of jacarandas in bloom. A gorgeous purple sapphire is encased in an elegant claw setting made from an alloy of 18 karat yellow gold and 14 karat rose gold. The play of light between the lavender sapphire and the warm rose and yellow golds is mesmerizing. The pendant hangs from a delicate 16" 14 karat liquid gold chain. Like all of the pieces from Variance Objects, this necklace is completely one of a kind.
