Brilliant blue and one-of-a-kind
Tanzanite is a rare aqua violet-colored gemstone found only in one place in the world—the gem mines of Tanzania, Africa. While the hue and color can vary, the most popular and frequently seen shade set in a ring is a rich, sparkling cornflower blue or violet. Classy and contemporary, if you’re searching for a rare and unique gemstone for your loved one, a tanzanite ring is a perfect pick.
A brief history of the gemstone
Like every good story, the history of tanzanite is shrouded in a bit of mystery. As a recent addition to the gemstone world, this stone was only discovered in the 1960s, and the question of its origin and who can be responsible for its find is even contested. However, most give Henry B. Platt, the then Vice President of Tiffany & Co. in New York, credit for recognizing its potential when it was first brought to him. Yet tanzanite shipment and supply had a tumultuous beginning, and fell back into obscurity after it was unable to be consistently mined, shipped, and sold overseas.
That difficulty is no longer a problem for the modern gemstone, and at Tanzanite Rings HQ, we take pride in choosing sellers and suppliers who are either family-owned or professionally-certified, and all gemstones within our tanzanite rings are ethnically sourced, environmentally shipped, and conflict-free.
