Did you know that Tanzanite is said to be 1,000 rarer than diamonds? This is because it can only be found in one place – at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, East Africa. When it first emerges from the earth its colour is a reddish-brown but when it is heat treated it reveals an exquisite blue-purple hue.

It was only discovered in 1967 and took over in 2002 from Turquoise as the birthstone for December. Tanzanite is associated with intuition, perception and higher levels of consciousness – a mystical stone indeed.

Tanzanite jewellery looks stunning and we have a fabulous collection of pieces featuring this vibrant gemstone including white gold and silver drop, stud and hoop earrings, pendants, and dress and cluster rings.

We have more Tanzanite jewellery in store in Broadstone, Poole so pop along and see this how amazing this jewel looks for yourself!
