5.80ct Tanzanite Giulia Ring

$12,800.00

This Giulia ring is the quintessential cocktail ring; it’s an ornately detailed ring set with a fabulously saturated tanzanite. This deeply saturated 5.80ct tanzanite shows both rich blue and purple, with bits of red fireworks that pop at certain angles. The perfectly cut gem flashes and dazzles in its elaborate mounting.

The 18kt lacy ring is set with about a third of a carat of fabulous quality diamonds, nestled into the lacy platform which surrounds the tanzanite. 

  • 5.80ct Tanzanite
  • 0.33ct Diamonds
  • 18kt Gold
  • ring measures approximately 22mm across
  • ring size is 6.25
  • made in Italy by 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.  

ABOUT THE TECHNIQUE  

This piece of jewelry was hand-fabricated and hand-engraved by master goldsmiths in Florence, Italy. Click Here for more information on Renaissance Style Florentine Engraving.
