Tanzanite Blue – The BMW of Gemstones

How powerful and unique is the appeal of the dark blue color emanating from a Tanzanite gemstone? More than enough to be a sought after color for a high-end car such as a BMW, we have heard. And while you may or may not be able to afford such a car right now, our quality gemstones set as rings, pendants and earrings are quite affordable.

Tanzanite Blue

If you are new to Tanzanite (possibly finding this blog while searching for “BMW”), TopTanzanite would like to share with you what regular readers know. Tanzanite is a deep, rich, blue color that speaks of individuality, power, and confidence.  Just look at this 1.00ct Trillion Tanzanite Pendant with .05ctw Diamonds in 14k  White Gold.

The cuts and corners are clearly carved. The details are clean, sharp yet subdued. It speaks clearly but not loudly across a crowded room. You stand out in style.

Somewhat the same as the aforementioned Tanzanite Blue BMW as you will note in the praising opinions of not only the car owner but the commenters at the end of the auto blog.  They seem to favor the TB (Tanzanite Blue) paint overcoat on the BMW.

What is so special about the blue color and Tanzanite itself that appeals to both owners of fine jewelry and high-end motorcars? Perhaps it is the uniqueness of Tanzanite. It is mined in only one place in the entire world, a 20 square mile area in Northern Tanzania and when the digging ends, it ends. A gemstone, a car, no longer in production becomes a rarity, a collector’s item.

According to Geology.com: Tanzanite stands out in mall and chain store jewelry displays because most stones have a distinct hint of purple or violet in their color. People who have experience looking at gems and pay attention to color will quickly notice Tanzanite in a display case of blue gems.

Wouldn’t you want to be the owner of a  standout ring such as this 2ct Oval Tanzanite Gent’s Ring with .22ctw Diamonds in 14k White Gold to wear and pass down to a family member, knowing full well that its value and appreciation will only increase over the years?

Consider how that ring would look on your finger, or that pendant around your neck as you drove the Tanzanite Blue BMW. The finer things in life begin as dreams before becoming a reality.

Bringing Back the Shine If Your Tanzanite Ring Becomes Cloudy

Brilliant, beautiful and oh so blue, your Tanzanite Ring is a treasure to behold. But, more than just an accessory to be worn at dinner parties or even to work, it is an investment, one that needs to be taken care of on a regular basis. Cleaning this gemstone is not difficult, but you must take great care, as you would with a classic car.

tanzanite-ringTo begin with, there is no need for concern if your Tanzanite begins losing some of its blue brilliance after you have worn it for some time. It is natural. It is a beautiful gemstone. You want to show it off, and understandably it will pick up dirt, skin oils, fingerprints, and of course, makeup.

You have essentially two choices. You can bring it to jewelers or do it yourself. Does it yourself? Don’t panic.

If you decide to use a jeweler you know & trust, problem solved. However, if it is first-time undertaking, be sure to meet him/her to ask questions. You want to wonder if you can trust him with your investment. Look online for references. Moreover, if a sales person tries to act as a buffer to keep you from the jeweler, then walk away. While your precious ring is out of your possession, you want to know you will always have access to the person to whom you have entrusted it for safekeeping.

If you decide to do the cleaning yourself, the most important thing to remember is that Tanzanite is a rare and delicate stone. It will scratch easily. Simple mild soap and warm water will be your friends.

In today’s high-tech world, people naturally look to the Internet for answers (You are here, reading this blog, are you not?). Click away from any website that might suggest for the actual cleaning things such as toothpaste, paper or anything that is coarse. These will scratch. We have seen some sites that will suggest employing the softest setting toothbrush to use, but we recommend standard microfiber lens cloths or a fully 100% smooth cotton cloth.

Begin by gently placing your Tanzanite ring in a medium to the large bowl of room temperature soapy water. Too hot or too cold could crack the stone.

• You may use a dishwashing liquid, but it must be free of bleaches and the mildest form as abrasives would be damaging to your gemstone.

• Distilled water will also be an even better choice if you live in an area where tap water carries with it harsh chemicals.

• A plastic container would be even more favorable. You do not want the ring to bang against the sides of the ceramic bowl.

Let it sit for about 20 minutes. Then dry your ring off with the microfiber or cotton cloth, in light circular motion, much the same as you would a bathroom mirror but obviously on a much smaller and more precise scale.

Take these simple steps on a regular basis, and you will extend the life and enjoyment of your Tanzanite Rings for many years to come.
