“The Reverie” Vivid Green Tsavorite 10.65 cts12460
This stone takes the most special place in our selection of finest Tanzanian Tsavorites. The unique cutting style resembles asscher cut, highly praised in 19th century, with the corners slightly different from those of classic style and thus adding an original flair to the stone. The octagonal shape boasts excellent symmetry and proportions. Apart from the iconic Vivid Green color, the Tsavorite reveals exceptional clarity and strong brilliance. The superior vibrancy of the stone is enhanced by the facet reflections, arranged in a spectacular geometrical pattern. A Tsavorite of this clarity, color, size over ten carats and performed in an exquisite antique cut is a one-of-a-kind occurrence.
