Tanzanite and Diamond Ring
Despite the gem's beauty, Tiffany & Co, the first to offer to sell the gem, was afraid the name sounded too much like “blue suicide” and would keep away their customers. Since the gem was discovered in the foothills of the East African country, Tanzania, Tiffany & Co renamed the stone tanzanite.
Tanzanite is relatively soft and can be set in a different jewelry, such as tanzanite pendants and tanzanite rings. One of the largest and most famous pieces of Tanzanite, “The Queen of Kilamanjaro,” is set in a tiara.
Tanzanite's breathtaking winter colors make tanzanite jewelery the ideal present for anyone with a December birthday. It also makes a thoughtful holiday gift to any loved one this season.
