Iolite Necklaces


About Iolite Necklaces

When you are shopping for iolite necklaces, the most important value factor to consider is the quality of the iolite. Long known as "water sapphire," this lovely blue gem has the steely hue of the ocean at dawn. The more pure and saturated the blue, the more valuable the iolite. Cut is even more important than clarity, since a well-cut iolite will dance with light.

Because all Gemvara pendants are made to order, we can hand-select fine-quality iolite to perfectly suit your design.

What is the meaning of iolite in the language of gems? Iolite is the gem of exploration. When Leif Eriksson and the other legendary Viking explorers ventured far into the Atlantic, they used a naturally polarizing iolite lens to determine the exact position of the sun to navigate safely to the new world and back. Iolite is the gem of the 21st anniversary.

Iolite pendants and necklaces are most often crafted in white gold, yellow gold, sterling silver or platinum. You will want to match the color of iolite necklaces to iolite earrings or an iolite ring.

Clean iolite pendants and necklaces with mild dish soap: use a soft brush behind the gems where dust can collect.

Gemvara's fine quality iolite necklaces are designed to be passed down for generations to come, crafted by hand in the United States.
