Tanzanite Gemstone

Looking for a unique engagement ring?  Why not consider having a Tanzanite in your engagement ring rather than a diamond.

Tanzanite is the blue to violet-purple transparent variety of the mineral zoisite.  It was first discovered in the 1960’s at the foothills of Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania which is the only known source.  The name Tanzanite was coined by Tiffany & Co in honour of its sole country of origin.

Larsen Jewellery specialises in custom made rings handcrafted at our jewellery studios in Sydney and Melbourne.  We can source a wide range of coloured gemstones including Tanzanite for you to choose from.  Please click here to read more about our custom made engagement rings.
