tanzanite engagement rings

Traditions are tried and true ways that “everybody has done it in the past.” But, apparently the times, they are a-changing. Modern brides, millennials top among them, are reportedly looking to distance themselves from the traditional look and expense of diamond engagement rings by favoring colored gemstones, and among them is Tanzanite.

The Vancouver Sun recently ran an interesting article, “In loving color: Coloured gemstones, diamonds a hot option for engagement rings” where  Amanda He, founder of the Vancouver-based fine jewelry brand Poppy Finch is quoted as saying “People now value and encourage individualism much more than a decade ago. We want to be who we are, and not be told what we should or shouldn’t be doing ”

Just as a flurry of colors now adorn bridesmaids from one wedding to another based on the personal style of the bride, so to can her engagement ring, something she will obviously wear quite often and as such it should be an expression of herself in today’s world and not a distraction from times gone by.

Tanzanite Jewelry

Tanzanite is perfectly positioned to blend into this brave new world of wedding rings and bands which has become “much more pigmented than it used to be,” as described by the article’s author Aleesha Harris.

Tanzanite is of course, world-renowned for breathtaking tanzanite color, And its intense depth, and rarity.

Just gaze deeply at this 3 ctw Cushion Cut Tanzanite Ring with 0.42ctw in 14K White Gold in AAAA Grade. It makes a statement. The wearer of this ring has her life balanced among her roles and will boldly meet every challenge head on to the benefit of her partner and herself. She is no shrinking violet.

There is also nothing old fashioned about this 1.5ct Trillion Tanzanite Ring With .11ctw Diamonds in 14k White Gold. This is not your grandmother’s engagement ring. The twisted band gives it a trendy look which can fit in well with almost every kind of dress, whether formal or informal

Tradition has held that the price range of the ring should equate to three times the groom’s salary. But the article reports such thinking is giving way for more affordable rings to allow for greater funds available for a home.

This .90ct Cushion Tanzanite Ring With .12ctw Diamonds in 14k Yellow Gold fits that bill precisely, at a current mid $500 price range, easily within a month’s salary of today’s hard working Millennial. And as modern as it looks with the wavy curvature of the band if you look closely it has a symbolic (traditional?) impression of two hands holding the gemstone in place.

Let Tanzanite & January Be Your Doorway to the New Year

January, when you think of it, is the doorway or even the doorman (woman? person?) that welcomes you into a new year of dreams, goals, accomplishments and interactions. It is a new beginning for relationships, even on-going ones, so why not celebrate that with one of the newest and most popular gemstones in recent history: Tanzanite!

New Beginning for The Year

Having read this blog before, you may be aware of the Tanzanite story. It was discovered in 1967 and found in only one place, a small 20-mile tract of land in Tanzania; “blue zoisite” (its scientific designation) was a virtual overnight success in the world of fine jewelry based on the captivating blue presence the gemstone offered to owners.

Consider the blue shadings of this eye-catching .22ct Marquise Tanzanite Ring with .224ctw Diamonds in 14k Rose Gold.

Or imagine the unique look of these 4.2ctw Cushion Tanzanite Earrings with 1.13ctw Diamond in Yellow Gold as they swing from delicate ears.. Cushion Tanzanite Earring

Tanzanite also owes its success in part to its name, thanks to Tiffany & Company. Fully aware of the blue gemstone’s potential as an international seller, Tiffany struck the deal to become its main distributor, but in doing so renamed it to “Tanzanite” to focus on the rarity and sole location as a powerful selling point.

But, do you know the story of “January” and how it got its name?  The Roman god of doorways — those both opening & closing, was named Janus. He is usually depicted as having two faces since he looks to the future and the past. And is not January the doorway to look into the new year while still looking back at the previous year?

In Latin, the word is Januarius. In Middle English it became Januarie.

Therefore, January represents a unique new beginning for the year and to relationships (new or existing). What better way to symbolize this to your beloved that he or she is also unique, than with such a rare gemstone as Tanzanite?

Tanzanite Pendants

For example, how rare is it to see a pendant with two diamond-studded bars connecting to a chain such as this .40ct Princess Cut Tanzanite Pendant with .448ctw Diamonds in 14k White Gold.

Tanzanite, the most unique investment.

Tanzanite is among the rarest gemstone on earth and also the most undervalued relatively to its rarity. It sells much less than diamond but its structural reasons have kept it attaining its true and ever growing potential.
It is a trichoic stone that possess diverse colors. The color ranges from blue to deep violets and indigo. It has been declared the most beautiful stone that has been discovered over the last 2,000 years. Its color is an attraction to many especially those who tend to make jewelry out of it. It is projected that the stone will become depleted in the next 25 years thus given the name “gemstone of a generation”. The price of Tanzanite has been rising. It is projected that it will rise more in the coming years due to the law o demand and supply. Investment in this gemstone would yield abnormal profits in the next years as its availability is diminishing.

Tanzanite is a commodity that is only found in a 4Km square in Tanzania. It is difficult to find and yet easy to destroy in the process of extraction. Anyone wishes to have this valuable investment, but covet the stone distinct beauty. Many believe that it has therapeutic and healing properties. The presence of tanzanite is believed to be as result of eruption of Mt Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. The eruption of the mountain is believed to be as result of unique conditions thus the rarity of the gemstone is due to the absence of these conditions. Economically, the unique conditions set the stage for the major factors that make the stone a potential and a successful investment. The more the conditions become rare, the less the eruptions and in turn the rare the gemstone. Its demand is increasing year in year out not only in the US market but all around the globe.

Besides, the stone has high vibration ability. It is currently about a third the price of sapphire. Compounded by its rarity, tanzanite has become investment of choice and it is more likely to increase as the supply lowers.

From the estimates given by geologists, there are merely ten years left before tanzanite become depleted due to the constant mining in just a single site? The results will that both supply and demand will play in favor of the gem because of the increasing quantity and the increasing popularity all over the world.

The commodity is evidently a good and solid investment for the growing reputation and the high increasing value. The value and secure, the solid ownership of the gemstone will definitely be an excellent investment than any stock market that ever existed. Mining will definitely grow along the interest of the consumer, which will decrease the supply rate even faster. Putting into consideration that an investment can never hit 100 percent, stacking up on a few tanzanite will be a good investment based on all the factors.

Make a wise step, invest on tanzanite and you will smile all the way to the bank.
