A circle of 17 perfectly-matching round iolite stones in a delicate misty blue shade can be worn on a chain or clipped between two pearls on your favorite strand without injuring the pearls. Clever, eh? The mounting is solid sterling silver to ensure this pendant will give you years of enjoyment. Iolite substitutes now for tanzanite. But, it has an unmatched color all its own. Perfect with denim and jeans. Beautiful for office wear.
