Looking for a way to brighten up your winter? How about a piece that will bring a bit of exotic appeal to a cold day? If you’re in search of a little touch of the exotic this winter, look no further than tanzanite rings. These uniquely gorgeous pieces put a one-of-a-kind stone on display–one that never fails to intrigue.
Tanzanite is a relatively new discovery in the world of gemstones. Shepherds in Tanzania first noticed this stunning stone near the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro in the 1960s, and it’s been gaining admirers ever since. The color of this gem is what really sets it apart: this stone’s violet-blue is soft yet vibrant, reminiscent of a cornflower bur far less ordinary. The look of tanzanite testifies to the fact that it is something truly rare and special: in the nearly five decades that have passed since this stone’s discovery, it has only been found in one five-square mile area.
Tanzanite’s unique color allows it to bring a fresh look to styles that are inspired by times past, and Apples of Gold carries a number of tanzanite rings that feature the designs of the Victorian Era and the Art Deco Period. For instance, the 1 Carat Art Deco Tanzanite Engagement Ring in 14K White Gold is rich with 1920s styling, but the brilliant tanzanite that it holds gives it modern twist. This round, 1 carat gemstone emerges from within the smooth, highly-polished petals of a lotus flower. In contrast to this sleek blossom, an intricate motif of swirls and leaves adorns the band. This is a truly extraordinary piece that combines that past and the present in a ring with beauty that will endure long into the future.
Of course, vintage styles aren’t the only ones to benefit from tanzanite’s touch of exotic color. Contemporary designs seem even more current when set with this vibrant stone, as demonstrated by the Trillion-Cut Tanzanite and Diamond Ring. This elegant yet edgy ring accents a 0.75 trillion-cut tanzanite with four small diamonds in asymmetrical fashion for a look that’s sophisticated without abandoning a sense of fun.
Classic rings are given a head-turning twist with tanzanite. For instance, the Three Stone Tanzanite and Diamond Ring in 14K White Gold takes a traditional design—the three-stone ring—and replaces the center diamond with a 4mm round tanzanite. This piece will never go out of style, and somehow seems perpetually fresh and current.
Tanzanite earrings provide a lovely complementary touch to any tanzanite ring, but they’re also excellent choices on their own. The Tanzanite Stud Earrings in 14K White Gold are timeless, and they’re sure to draw complements through their matchless blue hue. This pair is available with your choice of 4mm, 5mm or 6mm stones, for just the right touch of alluring color.
Tanzanite rings bring a touch of the exotic to even the coldest of days. Let one of these mesmerizing pieces wake up your look and add a touch of matchless color.
