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!
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..
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?
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.
With any of the gemstone jewelry pictured in this blog, you may easily elevate the otherwise normal attire of your partner by mixing in the high-end styling that Tanzanite ownership offers. And January is a uniquely timely month to do so.
