Tanzanite was discovered in the hills of Northern Tanzania by Masai tribesman and remains the sole source of Tanzanite to this day. An extremely desirable gemstone, it can show two colors - blue and violet - depending on the way the light hits the stone.
Each gemstone varies, some may be more square than rectangle, some may be wider, some longer. Each stone is hand picked by the artist for an individually created ring. The gemstone is set in a pure 22k gold bezel and accented with three granules on each side. Granulation is an ancient decorative technique and can only be done with the purest of metal. To bring out the blue-violet of the stone it is set on a pure silver back sheet. The ring band is sterling silver and is hand tapered on the back of the ring for a comfort fit. Each stone has it's own unique "character characteristics" seen in the crystal structure of minerals like a fingerprint.
Each Tanzanite weighs approximately 8 carats and are about 15x12 mm, however that can vary from stone to stone.
Signed on the back by the artist.
Available in size 5 to 11 in whole, half and quarter sizes.
Care is wash gently with mild dish soap. A polishing cloth is included with your ring.

Beautiful custom ring has exceeded my expectations! Nancy's work is true craftsmanship, and is so much better than anything you will find in stores. Her communication and recommendations were excellent throughout the process. I am delighted with the design she created, the quality of the work produced, and the outcome of the final ring which I now proudly wear. If the need arises, I will definitely work with Nancy again.
