To help jewellery designer Safi Kilima Tanzanite raise awareness of the gorgeous gemstone known as Tanzanite, I’m reviewing one of her beautiful rings. Set in 14k white gold, the marquis-cut tanzanite gemstone in this ring is encircled by a half carat of diamonds, as if they’re trying to capture the jewel’s stunning blue-violet beauty. This wonderful hue comes from the mineral zoisite and gives the gem a pleochroic quality, meaning it takes on different colours depending on the light and angle. It’s the perfect gemstone for women who also take on different characters depending on the day! Purple is the colour for 2018, so it’s the ideal choice for a new addition to your jewellery box.

In 1967 the Masai tribesman Ali Juuyawatu discovered the first-ever blue-violet zoisite gemstone in Tanzania. It was later named Tanzanite by Tiffany & Co to recognize the birthplace of this magnificent violet-blue jewel. Tanzanite is only found in one place near the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, and is said to 1000 times more rare than a diamond. It is a gemstone for the adventurous and its 50th anniversary is being celebrated by Safi Kilima Tanzanite.

The Safi Kilima Tanzanite Marquis Tanzanite Ring features a rich saturated violet-blue hue that is the most valuable of all. The eye-catching design resembles art with its stunning tanzanite jewel wrapped in a tender embrace of glistening diamonds. Isn’t it time you gave yourself the gift of tanzanite?
