Overview

“Viking’s compass” and “water sapphire” are two nicknames for the violet gem iolite. Viking navigators used thin slices of the polarized stone as a lens through which to view the sun and set their course. Today it’s a common gift for 21st wedding anniversaries. It’s found throughout the world, but especially in India, where these hoop iolite earrings are handcrafted and faceted by Jaipur jewelers. 18-karat gold vermeil.
