SMOOTH TANZANITE OBLONG | Sterling Silver ring with Rhodium plating
This smooth Sterling Silver ring features an exquisite oblong shaped Tanzanite cabochon in the most beautiful dark blue that goes into blueish purple depending on the lighting.
It has the superior quality AAA.
Tanzanite is a Lavender Zoisite and it was discovered only in 1967 at the foot of Mount Kilamanjaro in Tanzania, Africa.
The presence of vanadium is what creates its incredible colour.
These crystals have quite a distinct property known as plechroism, meaning that they can appear as more than one color when viewed at different angles.
Tanzanite can be seen as purple, grey, or blue. Under an incandescent light the stones may even appear violet. Tanzanites are 1000 times rarer than diamonds.
Tanzanite is a calming stone and is said to enhance composure and harmony.
It has been declared in 2002 an additional December's Birthstone by the American Gem Trade Association, in addition to Turquoise.
This ring has been Rhodium plated.
The precious metal Rhodium is twice as valuable as Gold and it gives this ring a beautiful and longlasting shine and keeps if from tarnishing.
The Tanzanite in this ring is 7.5mm long and 6mm wide.
This ring is a UK size Q, circumference in (mm) 57, European size 18, US 8 and this is immediately available.
If you require a different ring size, I need about a week to alter the ring. (will be £15 extra)
All my pieces are unique and when it comes to rings, you want to know the finger size, if it is for the ring finger, pointer, thumb, middle or the pinky, left or right or even for a toe.
In most cases rings can be adapted and resized.
