Tanzanite: The Italian Jeweler’s Secret


Tanzanite, the birthstone of December, is an incredibly rare gemstone with brilliant hues that vary between blue and purple. Its fantastic coloring and extremely limited availability make the beautiful stone a fine jeweler’s dream. But why is it so scarce? How does it produce such unique colors? And – perhaps more importantly – what happens when ZYDO uses the gemstone to design a stunning piece of authentic, handmade Italian jewelry?

This luxurious gemstone was discovered in Tanzania during the ‘60s. To present day, the East African state for which it was named has been the only location to produce the gem. According to the International Colored Gemstone Association, it was, “enthusiastically celebrated by specialists as the ‘gemstone of the 20th century.” Its physical structure creates different colors from different angles by an effect called trichroism, which gives the stone a captivating aesthetic presence. The brilliant colors of the stone make it the perfect centerpiece for stunning rings, fantastic earrings and charming pendants, when available.

For obvious reasons, tanzanite is very special. But what does the gem say about the modern fashionista who is privileged to acquire fine Italian jewelry featuring the precious gem? When worn with the right outfit, tanzanite jewelry exudes confidence and individuality. The uncanny allure and exclusive nature of the gem creates a timeless look with a sophisticated style, which suits young and mature women alike.
