When you are shopping for tanzanite jewelry, the most important value factor to consider is the quality of the tanzanite. The more vivid, pure, velvety, and saturated the blue, the more valuable the tanzanite. The secret to tanzanite's mesmerizing color is trichoism: crystals of tanzanite are three different colors from different directions. This means that blue and purple dance together in the depths of the gem as it moves and catches the light. Only large gems show the most saturated colors.
Because all Gemvara jewelry is made to order, we can hand-select fine-quality tanzanite to perfectly suit your design. Gemvara's tanzanite is the best possible color for its size, more blue than purple.
What is the meaning of tanzanite in the language of gems? Tanzanite is a modern gem, discovered in 1969 and named by Tiffany & Co. Supremely rare it is found only one place in the world: a five-square mile area in Merelani in Tanzania near the feet of majestic Kilimanjaro. This twilight-colored gem is a tribute to the natural beauty of Africa, the birthplace of mankind.
Tanzanite is a December birthstone and the 24th anniversary gem.
After mining, virtually every tanzanite on the market is heated to permanently change its color from brown to the spectacular violet-blue color for which this precious gemstone variety is known.
Tanzanite jewelry is most often crafted in white or yellow gold or platinum. Silver is generally not recommended for tanzanite jewelry because the metal is not durable enough to protect the gem. Because the purplish blue color is intense, you will want to match the color of tanzanite earrings or a tanzanite necklace closely to the color of a tanzanite ring.
Tanzanite rings shouldn't be worn when working with your hands or exercising vigorously. If you are active, you should choose a setting that protects the gem if you plan on wearing your ring every day. Avoid cleaning tanzanite jewelry in an ultrasonic cleaner. Clean tanzanite jewelry with mild dish soap: use a soft brush behind the gems where dust can collect.
