One of the rarest and most prized garnets in jewelry today is this brilliant green variety of grossular garnet called tsavorite. The most desirable tsavorites are an intense green to blue-green and can sometimes be confused with emerald. However, tsavorites are usually higher in clarity with fewer inclusions and have great brilliance due to the high refractive index. The color is due to the presence of vanadium. Tsavorite is desirable because it is rare and is a single-source gem, only found in the Tsavo National Park on the border between Kenya and Tanzania.

They'll be green with envy each time you don these stately drop earrings. The pear-shaped simulated tsavorite is double prong set at the bottom, and dangles from a round, prong-set simulated tsavorite. The openwork gallery with scroll details creates a classic finishing touch.

Goldtone or Silvertone.

Beatiful I got these last year for Christmas and they are beautiful! I love the deep green color and they are very comfortable and easy to wear. I'm so glad I convinced my husband to buy them for me! 10-22-12
Green Luv! Really love these earring not heavy but they look great on. Everytime I wear them somebody loves them .I think these are some of the best ever. Shine but in a understated way. Great job.They go with all the green Smithsonian pieces. 08-22-12
Wonderful Earrings! My only option was to buy these in silver. Like so many others, I would have chosen the gold. However, these are lovely in silver! They're a very nice size and shape and drop length and color and, most important, they're not too heavy. These are the perfect finishing touch for the outfit I'm going to wear to the Kennedy Center! 07-07-12
Just right I t hink these earrings are perfect - not too big, not too small. I'll wear these casual, with a business suit, or a cocktail dress. Its a wonderful compliment to the JBK Coco key lock bracelet. 06-20-12
absolutely beautiful first time buying something from the Smithsonian. These are wonderful and the perfect size. I am very familiar with Tzavorite and am thrilled to have these. Great quality. I thought they were yellow gold but received silver, would have preferred yellow gold but these are beautiful keepers. 05-25-12
Gorgeous ! I have these in the gold and received more compliments on these earrings than on all of my JR and other earrings combined ! The color is beautiful. Somehow the color is both dark and bright.....they seem to glow. I wore them to work every day for 3 months ! ! ! ! ! I never do that ! I thought they would be too dressy to wear for everyday but somehow they work. I'm now looking at real Tsavorite jewelry o go with it and am thinking about getting them in the silver tone too. 05-08-12
THEY ARE EVERYTHING AND MORE...... I have ordered two pair of the goldtone. I opened the box and my jaw dropped. They were so beautiful. the color saturation and size were perfect. They were so nice, I put them on right then and there. I would highly recommend these with jeans and white crisp t-shirt or dressed up with a beautiful dress. I will be ordering the silvertone, 04-05-12
WOW Beautiful green color, and I love the style (no fake diamonds). They make you feel like ROYALTY. The gold looks real. Too many Smithsonian items have white metal, so I appreciate that these come in goldtone. Please do these in RUBY and goldtone. 03-21-12
Total Disappointment Beautiful color but the overall look is not one that is believeable......honestly looks cheap. 02-24-12
Classy Excellent product. Looks like a $1000 set. My wife loved them. 02-15-12
Breathtaking Color and Cut The Color saturation of these stones feels like the real thing and the cut and size and basket design of the setting are all what makes these stunning. It is just the right amount of class to perk up your regular outfit or for the under stated elegance of a special occasion 02-10-12
Look Like Costume Jewelry Color is good on these earrings, but the overall look is not one to wear with pride. The earrings look very much the simulation they are. I sent them back. 01-27-12
