Rings- Argentium sterling silver- 15mm diam
Total length from top to bottom- 50mm (2")

Iolite has a delicate and quite pretty violet blue color that is unlike other gemstones, although it has been compared to a light blue sapphire. It is this reason that it is sometimes known as "water sapphire". Although the color is attractive and popular, iolite is not extremely rare and is therefore affordable. The colors violet blue, yellow gray and a light blue can be seen in Iolite.

*Argentium Sterling Silver is sterling silver with less of the copper alloy. Copper is what makes sterling silver tarnish. Argentium is 92.5% pure silver with the balance a mix of germanium and copper. This makes Argentium silver harder, brighter and more highly tarnish resistant than traditional sterling silver.

All Gracie Jewellery is handmade in my smoke and pet free studio. Each piece is shipped in its own storage pouch.
