"Tanzanite is said to be 1000 times rarer than diamonds."
This gemstone has only ever been found in the same place it was first discovered, in the Merelani Hills of Tanzania. The mining and selling of this stone is regulated for it to remain a sustainable source. It has become Decemebers birthstone, a perfect gift for those celebrating another year of life as well as the holiday season!
The Ancient Romans encountered black diamonds as they explored and conquered large areas of Africa and quickly became enamored of them. They believed that the gems were very lucky and that they were, therefore, an exceptionally good choice for a wedding ring.
