Nothing quite adds personality and sentimentality to one’s ensemble like birthstone jewelry. Those born in the month of December are particularly lucky to have a number of gems to choose from: turquoise, tanzanite, and blue topaz. Each of these gems exhibit a distinct shade of blue, from the opaque, slightly warmer variant of turquoise, to the deep and dreamy night sky shade of tanzanite, to the cool crystal coloring of blue topaz. Find the perfect piece to add to your own wardrobe or give to a loved one this winter from among our inventory here at Albert’s, where our curated collection of designer jewelry is a reflection of our commitment to excellence and artistry.

Mesmerizing Tanzanite

Prized for its rich blue-violet hue that shimmers differently under various lighting, tanzanite often draws comparisons to a wintry night sky. As a relative newcomer to the gem world, it's found exclusively near Mount Kilimanjaro, adding an exotic allure to its narrative. The stone is often linked with symbols of transformation, clarity, and spiritual awareness, making it a deeply meaningful gift for December-born individuals. Our in-house collection features this 14k white gold tanzanite and diamond ring as a prime example of this gem's elegance. This ring not only showcases the depth of tanzanite's color but also adds a touch of sophistication to any ensemble. Adorned with diamonds, it brings just the right amount of sparkle and personality to the wearer’s look. On the other hand, this dramatic Elle Jewelry tanzanite necklace allows the gem to take center stage. The emerald cut, known for its timeless appeal, combined with a minimalistic setting, allows the vibrant color of the tanzanite to dramatically stand out. This piece is a testament to the beauty of simplicity, where the stone's inherent allure becomes the focal point.

With its cool and crystalline shades, blue topaz is an embodiment of December's winter charm. Its colors range from light sky blue to a deep, vibrant aqua, encapsulating the whimsy of icy landscapes and cloudless winter skies. Known for its properties of enhancing communication and clarity, blue topaz is often associated with calmness, creativity, and a balanced mind. 

These Kelly Waters sterling silver blue topaz studs are perfect for those who appreciate a touch of whimsy combined with sophistication. These earrings, with their shimmering blue topaz set in a micropavé style, exude fun while remaining effortlessly elegant. Meanwhile, Albert's blue topaz and infinity bracelet further showcases the versatility of blue topaz.
