18K yellow gold and Tsavorite....

Posted by Huck L. Berry on

We love Tsavorite....

“Tsavorite is a variety of the garnet group species grossular, a calcium-aluminium garnet. Trace amounts of vanadium or chromium provide the green color. First discovered in Tanzania in 1967… The gemstone was known only to mineral specialists until 1974, when Tiffany and Co. launched a marketing campaign which brought broader recognition of the stone. The name tsavorite was proposed by Tiffany and Co president Sir Henry Platt in honor of Tsavo National Park in Kenya where most of it is found today.”
