Tanzanite Engagement Rings are Unique

If your special someone likes to stand out from the crowd, a tanzanite engagement ring may be the perfect choice, as tanzanite is an incredibly rare and unique stone.

Tanzanite was only discovered in Tanzania, Africa in the late 1960s, and it is still only mined from one place in the world—at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. This fact alone makes tanzanite thousands of times more rare than diamonds, or any other gemstone that can be found in multiple locations across the globe.

Tanzanite is also unique because engagement rings are traditionally small diamonds, but if you buy a tanzanite engagement ring online, you can give your loved one a creative and unique gift that will draw attention and praise from onlookers.

Tanzanite Engagement Rings are Affordable

Although tanzanite mimics the deep, intense blue of sapphire, the two stones are not the same. Sapphire, being one of the Big Four in the gemstone world, has always been more expensive, especially when you look for higher quality sapphire. But tanzanite, because it is fairly new still in the market, and because it’s less well-known, is more affordable. So you can purchase a larger gemstone for less, thus making a tanzanite engagement ring an affordable alternative to sapphire or other blue or purple stones.

Tanzanite was actually historically used as an alternative to sapphire, and sometimes this practice was hidden from the buyer. We always recommend that when you’re purchasing gemstones or gemstone jewelry that you purchase from a reputable seller, so that you know exactly what you’re getting when you buy. While we love tanzanite, we definitely think that if you’re buying it, you should know you’re buying it, and not think that you’re purchasing something that you’re not.

Tanzanite Engagement Rings Come in Many Different Colors and Styles

Tanzanite is a tricolored gemstone, which means that the color of the stone depends on the light under which it is viewed. So you can see blues, violets, indigo, and purple hues depending on where you’re viewing the stone, and how the light hits it. This means that your tanzanite engagement ring is even more versatile with outfits, and is one-of-a-kind and unlike any other ring that your loved one owns.

These three reasons are only a few on the list of why you should consider purchasing a tanzanite engagement ring for your partner.
