These timeless earrings are fine quality of tanzanite gemstone in an elegant cushion shape surrounded with white diamonds.
Found in just one place on earth, tanzanite is a relatively recent discovery. This blue variety of zoisite was named for Tanzania, the country where it was found, by Tiffany & Co. Because crystals show different colors depending on viewing direction, cutters can choose bluish purple or the more favored pure blue or violetish blue hue depending on how much weight they want to retain from the rough. Tanzanite has only one source: the hills of Merelani in northern Tanzania.
- Crafted in 18 karat white gold.
