1.90ct Tanzanite Ring

$3,600.00

 The Cassandra Ring is the perfect showcase for spectacular gemstones on the smaller side: it frames beautifully, keeps the focus on an important gem, and highlights without distracting. This particular 18kt white gold Cassandra ring features a richly colored tanzanite, which displays a depth of color which is hard to come by in stones this size. 

  • 1.90ct Tanzanite (Tanzania, Heated)
  • Platinum
  • approximately 6.8mm across at widest point
  • ring size 6
  • made in the USA by Dan Peligrad for Cynthia Scott Jewelry

ABOUT THE GEMSTONE 

Tanzanite is among the most fascinating of the modern gemstone discoveries. Tanzanite was discovered in the Merelani Hills (at the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro in northern Tanzania) in 1967, and this remains the only place in the world this unique gemstone is found. Tanzanite is a variety of the mineral zoisite, and there is lively debate in the gemstone community whether the word tanzanite should be used to describe all gem quality zoisite from Tanzania, or exclusively in reference to the blue-violet class of material.

Tanzanite crystals exhibit strong pleochroism, which means that distinctly different colors are shown as you turn the stone to different angles. The finished color of the gemstone depends on how a cutter orients the original material. At Cynthia Scott Jewelry, I am strongly drawn to cut tanzanites which clearly exhibit pleochroism as the stone faces up. I eagerly seek out stones which will show blue and violet with flashes of red; in my personal opinion, these stones most clearly showcase one of the properties which makes tanzanite special.

Tanzanite crystals are initially sorted based on the intensity of color saturation; this is a gem in which the deepest saturations of color are the most highly prized. Interestingly, tanzanite is one of a handful of gems which requires larger body size in order to achieve the lush and velvety saturated tones for which it is famous.
