Although she spent many millennia creating it, Mother Nature wisely held back one of her loveliest treasures until fairly recently, secreting her surprise beneath the icy snows of Mount Kilimanjaro. It was not until 1967 that a few Masai herdsmen stumbled across the breathtaking blue-violet stone that came to be known as tanzanite (for the country in Africa where it was first discovered, Tanzania).
The vibrancy of its stunning blue violet hue is unmistakable, and it’s a thousand times rarer than diamonds. No wonder tanzanite, a gemstone whose supply is expected to expire in less than 30 years, has been called the “quintessential heirloom of our generation.”
Now as if it was born to play the part, tanzanite blooms forever fresh in our Saintpaulia Necklace featuring 3 1/4 carats of pear cut tanzanite stones artfully arranged in 10K white gold to form an exquisite miniature bouquet. Named for the stunning variety of flowers more commonly known as African violets, the Saintpaulia Necklace is the perfect fusion of two of Africa’s greatest natural treasures.
