Recently I was invited for a pre-wedding for a long time couple friends who had a wedding in three months. They were looking for something different for their wedding ring that would also mark the bride's birthday (we will get to that in a minute) and I was like hey, I know a guy who knows some guys from top tanzanite who are connoisseurs in a very rare bluish violet gemstone that can go well with the theme of your wedding. It took the time to settle for the tanzanite but at the end of the day, I'm glad they settled for it.
Tanzanite is a gem from a mineral zoisite that derives its name from where it was first discovered, Tanzania. The gem was popularized by Tiffanys and company who discovered it in the 1960s and it’s only one of four blue gemstones consisting of aquamarine, topaz, and sapphire. It is regarded as a 20th-century gemstone and the last birthstone of December since 1912. It may not be as hard as sapphire with which it shares its violet-blue color but it is really a beautiful gem especially with its salient feature; trichroism meaning when viewed under different lighting conditions, it displays a color depth from vivid blue to violetish blue when viewed from different angles which can be really appealing when shopping for a gemstone with an added advantage of occurring naturally as compared to sapphire which can be industrially manufactured.
Although tanzanite is quite rare to find which also makes it unique to own, its also a budget option in terms of price depending on the size of the stone. Prices can range from $200 to $5000 which can also depend on the accompanying metal and if its coated for protection with zinc or not making it a very attractive option for couples on a budget who also want a gem that can stand out. For the price, the color is amazing.
If you are in the market for your next wedding ring and you are on a budget, settling for tanzanite wedding rings is easy, its beautiful blue color is stunning. The quality and price thereof of the gem depend on the cobalt coating that improves its color, though here in the US are disclosed at the point of sale, color saturation which depends on the level of vanadium in the zeolite ore and the heat level the ore has been subjected to, carat weight which ranges from 5 to 50 carats with the higher value being rare, size; the larger the stone the higher the color saturation and color stability
With such a beauty also comes a price. It is worth noting that with a hardness of around 6.5 on the Mohs Hardness scale, Tanzanite Rings is not a hard material and can be prone to abrasion sudden temperature change and impact and therefore should be handled with a lot of care. If you're in the market for something different, something unique and beautiful or you want a gemstone that can retain its color over time and want value for money on your next wedding then tanzanite is your next.
