I just opened up the bag for this online purchase and all I can say is Wow! This may become my favorite Saskia necklace. The lapis is a rich royal/navy blue and every facet sparkles. As is always the case, it’s even more gorgeous than the photo. The capsule pendent is a very interesting piece, with tiny designs etched into the silver. Blue Iris is nicely proportioned and could easily stand on its own, which is probably how I will most often wear it, but it would also be a great base to layer with as well. Totally pleased with the Blue Iris!
