The stones, the metal, the design---so many elements converge into one successful jewelry item. Often a welcome surprise is the result of rethinking the expected--presenting something in an alternative format to what we imagined. Great jewelry is the darling child of a designers' wit and talent, perfected in the cradle of skill.
We admire tanzanite, that one source violet-blue jewel, looking much like Dame Elizabeth Taylor's eyes at the pinnacle of her beauty. We're used to seeing tanzanite framed in cool white gold, a sublime pairing.
However, Best Bargains of Toronto styled pear-shaped tanzanite pendant earrings nestled in delicate yellow gold for a refreshingly modernist twist. All under $500. That's what I'm talking 'bout.
