It's rich distinctive blue livens up navys, greys, whites, blacks and purples. The hints of "gold" often seen in the stone are actually Pyrite (also known as "Fool's Gold").
This understated necklace is delicate enough to be worn on a faux suede lace as a choker, and also will look beautiful on a short 40.5 or 46cm chain
