You don’t have to be a December baby to appreciate everything tanzanite has to offer. Ranging in color from violet to blue, this stone was first discovered by herders in Tanzania in 1967. In its natural state, tanzanite is reddish brown, but when heated and cut it takes on a brilliant bluish-purple hue that takes on flashes of scarlet. There’s a reason this rare gem is one of the most desirable in the world and a top choice for December birthstone jewelry.

Get to Know Tanzanite
Diamonds might get most of the glory, but tanzanite is 1,000 times rarer and more valuable than every woman’s favorite carbon allotrope. That makes it a desirable choice for a wide range of fine jewelry, including necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and fashion rings. However, while tanzanite may look gorgeous in rings, one should note that tanzanite lacks the hardness rating of diamonds. If you want to keep your gems for the long haul, take care to choose settings that protect your tanzanite and avoid wearing these jewels when engaged in sports or other activities that could cause them to be damaged.
Named for the only area of the world where this stone can be mined, the treasure from the heart of Tanzania joins turquoise and zircon as the three accepted birthstones for the month of December. However, you don’t have to be born in December to rock these pieces. Read on to learn about the many exciting jewelry options featuring this exceptional gem.
