Beautiful Unheated blue sapphires are rarer than you think

Colour-matching service is exclusive only for our special VIP clients.

****

Our client had informed us he was looking for a unheated sapphire ring to match his wife’s existing earrings. Colour matching in 100% natural unheated gemstones is extremely difficult, especially when sourced at different times. Simply because no two natural colours are the same. Similarly, no twins are exactly the same, – there’s always a slight difference.

This ring is special in its colour. 100% eye-clean, this 2.12ct sapphire is almost electric blue under natural gentle morning sun. One of our most remarkable pieces by far. Unheated, of course.

Our client has a keen eye for fine quality gems. His “budget” allowed for even dark, royal blue sapphires. However, he simply insisted on a medium, almost electric-blue sapphire ring for his wife, to match her existing earrings. We needed some time.

After much sourcing and hunting, we found this that thankfully met his requirements.

Your Buying Guide to Tanzanites – Read this before your next purchase

For those who have caught the Tanzanite Bug, mesmerized by this blue-purple-violet gemstone – below is your buying guide to Tanzanites. The Tanzanite is a plechroic gemstone – meaning it will display different shades of blue/purple/violet/lilac when viewed from different angles.

New Colour of Love – the gem that is 1000 times rarer than Diamonds

A birthday around the corner, your wedding anniversary next week.

What do you give to your wife who already has the common, colourless rock? The new colour of love, in multiple shades! Blue, Bluish-Violet, Violet-Blue and Investment Grade Tanzanites. Tanzanites have one of the most mesmerizing blue/violet shades found in one single gem. This is due to its geological formation.

The most important C of Tanzanites is Colour, followed by Clarity, Cut and Carat.

3.58ct Perfect Solitaire Investment Grade Tanzanite.

How rare is Tanzanite?

Considering that Tanzanites are found in only one place on Earth, Tanzania in East Africa, it is a game of a single source with limited supply. In addition to this, the Tanzanian Government has banned the export of unprocessed Tanzanites into India (which is where 90% of the world’s supply of rough Tanzanites are faceted, cut and polished). Supply of Tanzanites is estimated to last approximately another 30 years, though with more advanced technology, miners could possibly mine deeper underground to achieve more.

The Tanzanite Foundation claims Tanzanites to be 1000 times rarer than Diamonds.

Investment Grade Tanzanites

Colour Chart Source: http://www.lapigems.com

Top quality colour Investment Grade Tanzanites are difficult to find. We are referring to good saturation (not one notch more, not one notch less), high brilliancy, a vivid hues of Bluish-Violet. Too much saturation, too much of blue or too much violet or very dark shades of Tanzanites will lower the value and price of your Tanzanite.

So you have the money, can you buy a piece of Investment Grade Tanzanite?

As mentioned, supply of Investment Grade Tanzanites are limited due to its single source. Even with money, the average consumer may or may not be able to lay their hands on Investment Grade/AAA coloured Tanzanites.

If you can afford, but can’t wait to have an Investment Grade Tanzanite, perhaps settle for yet another common, colourless rock
