A simple motif which is universally recognised and loved, the heart is one of our most enduring and popular pieces and needs little introduction. The distinctive colour and appearance of the opaque, milky turquoise is unique and unlike any other gem material. This turquoise and diamond heart necklace features 0.69ct composite turquoise and 0.09ct diamonds set in 14ct white gold.
Turquoise is an extremely desirable gemstone. It was one of the first gemstones to be mined, hence the deep reverence and veneration for this magical stone. It has been used for ornamentation since antiquity and has been recorded since at least 3,000BC. Prized for its intense colour, it can vary from a sky-blue to a greenish-blue, depending on its source. Material from Iran is generally considered the finest and most desirable, although there are a number of other deposits around the world.
The stone is almost always smooth and polished, and only rarely faceted. This composite turquoise is from Mexico.
The heart is soldered to the chain, which conveniently keeps the pendant in place (it does not run freely along the chain), and this avoids the clasp sliding to the front. The chain is secured with a lobster clasp.
Infinitely versatile, it conveniently has four adjustable lengths, varying from 37.5cm at its shortest to 45cm at its longest. So this is the PERFECT necklace for layering. Personalise your look by pairing with a diamond letter pendant.
Similar necklaces are available featuring other motifs. We also stock a pink opal and diamond blossom pendant, and a lapis lazuli and diamond blossom pendant. For something more geometric and contemporary, our turquoise and diamond triangle pendant is fun, and the lapis lazuli and diamond star is also popular.
Available in yellow, white and rose gold. Also available in other gem materials, such as lapis lazuli and pink opal.
Personalise the pendant with a hand-engraved message on the backing plate. Please enquire for more information.
