Tanzanite is a unique gem, found only in one location on Earth. And since it has such a gorgeous color, we are all so lucky it was first discovered some 40 years ago and then made its way to fine jewelry. MyJewelrySource has a special collection of fine quality tanzanite jewelry and we carefully source the most beautiful stones we can find. You probably are aware that tanzanite in jewelry has a wide range of hues, from pale lavender to dark purple. But it’s the medium to dark tones, strong saturations, and slightly purplish blue hues that are the most prized.
We have a delightful three stone design which features a 7x5mm oval tanzanite with a 10 point round diamond on each side, GR-7080 (shown above) and GR-7075 (shown left). In addition to the symbolism of the design, the ring has been given a vintage feel with the engraving that adorns three sides of the band. This is one ring we just had to offer in 14k white or 14k yellow gold because fine quality tanzanite is one of those gems that looks amazing in either color of gold.
If you’re looking for a really spectacular gem, our GR-7067 (shown right) features a stunning purplish blue 7mm cushion cut tanzanite with a medium tone and strong saturation. Tanzanites that show a more predominantly blue color are more rare and valuable since more gem weight is lost when a cutter orients the rough to bring out the blue hue. Therefore, gems are not usually cut this way and when you find one, you know you have a very special stone. The tanzanite in this ring has an exceptional cut and it is very lively. The setting features a split shank design adorned with rows of small, fully faceted round diamonds. The ring has a low profile so it will be quite comfortable for frequent wear. Notice too how we have used substantial V style prongs to not only hold the tanzanite securely but to also protect it from daily bumps and bruises.
The last design we wanted to showcase in this blog in our princess cut tanzanite and pink sapphire ring, GR-7089 (shown left). Wow, this ring will literally take your breath away. The combination of the jewel tones of the tanzanite and pink sapphires is mesmerizing. To highlight it all, we’ve framed the gems with bright, sparkling round diamonds. And to make sure the ring is a showstopper from every angle, we’ve added gorgeous filigree detail to the basket. In case this speaks to you as an engagement ring, we’ve already designed a coordinating diamond wedding band to complete the set.
