Buying jewellery as a gift can be a tough task. Not only do you have to consider the type of jewellery, but also the style, setting and, of course, the stone itself.

Diamonds are a perennial favourite, but if you’re looking for something with a unique ‘wow’ factor then we’d like to suggest tanzanite pendants.

Pendants are a stylish and versatile piece of jewellery and choosing a tanzanite can make an understated item into a statement piece. Here are several great reasons to choose tanzanite:

It’s distinctive

Tanzanite’s rich indigo-blue and violet colour make it an unusual and striking stone that catches the eye, making it the perfect gift for somebody who approaches life differently.

It shows more than one colour

Naturally-occurring tanzanite is trichroic, which means that it shows three different colours depending on the angle that it is viewed. However, when it is heated it becomes dichroic—showing two colours; indigo-blue and violet.  The colours can also differ under different lighting, making it a dynamic and interesting stone to look at.

It’s rare

Tanzanite’s name comes from the country where it is found: Tanzania. In fact, it is only found in a very small area near Mount Kilimanjaro, making it one of the rarest and most desirable stones on the planet.

It’s slowly disappearing

Although recent research shows that the tanzanite deposits in Tanzania will still be producing tanzanite for years to come, the fact remains that tanzanite is a finite natural resource that only comes from one source.

Nobody knows for sure exactly how much tanzanite remains in Tanzania, making the stone even more valuable.

It has a unique meaning

If diamonds represent the eternity of love, then what does tanzanite represent? Gemstones each have a unique mythology and tanzanite is no different; some have suggested that tanzanite’s unique multi-coloured, multi-faceted nature represent the ability to see the world from different perspectives.
