This brilliant blue stone is the talk of the town and the second most popular colored gem in the United States – all that with good reason. A tanzanite’s alluring color with just the right amount of gleam and its pleochroic properties that add to the blue flashes of crimson and violet make it a colored gem like no other. Not only that, it’s also a color that goes well with almost any outfit! Be it a yellow summer dress, a grey office suit or a deep blue cocktail gown – a tanzanite ring on your finger will always accentuate it to the perfect degree.
Tanzanite wedding rings have hit the red carpet with a bang and celebrities have been showing theirs off for a while now, so if you want a ring that stands out in a crowd and adds a touch of class to your wardrobe then don’t hesitate to go buy one of these! Not only that but it also looks great in multi-stone rings – it accents especially diamonds and emeralds to perfection.
Being a stone with a reasonable degree of hardness as per the Moh scale, tanzanite ring gemstones are ideal for daily use as well. Nothing like a cobalt blue rock on your finger to spruce up the work suit greys.
Its value matches its stunning blue and is greatly enhanced by its astonishing rarity. Tanzanite is mined only in a few square miles at the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa (hence the name). Being almost a thousand times rarer than diamonds its astounding climb up the gemstone and jewel market got it a spot on the birthstone list very soon after it was discovered. If you’re a December born then there’s no doubt that a tanzanite is better than any other stone for your ring!
Blue tanzanite’s also the perfect stone to use for metaphysical power explorations. If you are one to go for that sort of thing, tanzanite’s believed to be an earth stone which’s grounded and stable. Its calming effect on the wearer and people around helps him or her communicate with the people in his or her workspace and home; ensuring a serene state of mind and positive personal and official relationships.
Furthermore, in terms of price a high grade tanzanite could be expensive – up to $1000 – but it still stands to be cheaper than sapphires which are its main competition in the colored stone category. Very few gemstones happen to have both a rich color saturation as well as hardness, value and reasonable prices making tanzanite one of the foremost choices in rings.
