Tanzanite is known to be a rather soft stone. Tanzanites are also, almost always heated. Nonetheless, if cared for properly by its owner during storage and wear, it is a remarkably beautiful gemstone that can last for decades. Tanzanites are indeed a rare gemstone as they originate only from one source in Tanzania (hence the name).
Tanzanites are typically polished and faceted as large gemstones in sizes 5cts and above. Sizes less than 5 cts are not typically seen in jewellery stores. Hence, it is actually rare to find this piece as seen below, not exceeding 2cts and in a round shape. A premium is usually priced in for all gemstones (regardless coloured gemstone or diamond) that come in round shape as this shape incurs the highest carat weight loss.
Featured below is a very romantic-styled engagement ring with a gorgeous Tanzanite as its centrepiece.
Tanzanites typically displays a good range of lilac, violets and blue all within the same stone. In a more ‘technical’ term, it is a trichroic gemstone, meaning Tanzanites typically exhibit 3 layers of colour. There are very few gemstones known to Mankind that are trichroic.
And what’s more brilliant about this piece is that this design can be worn with a plain wedding band in a seamless effect! No awkward gap between your engagement ring and your wedding band!
If you don’t fancy a plain wedding band, style your engagement ring with a channel-set diamond wedding band, with our seamless effect. Either way, it will be a super gorgeous wedding stack.
