African Gem Cutter Makes $2,689,000 Mistake... Will You?

Tanzanite--1000 times rarer than diamonds

This story breaks my heart every time. Allegedly, just two years after the discovery of tanzanite in 1967, a Maasai tribesman knocked on the door of a gem cutter’s office in Nairobi looking to sell an enormous chunk of tanzanite. His asking price? Fifty dollars. But the gem cutter was suspicious and assumed that a stone so large could only be glass. The cutter told the tribesman, no thanks, and sent him on his way. Huge mistake. It turns out that the gem was genuine and would have easily dwarfed the world’s largest cut tanzanite at the time. Based on common pricing, that “chunk” could have been worth almost $2.7 MILLION!

In the decades since its discovery, tanzanite has become one of the world’s most coveted gemstones. Found in only one place on Earth, the precious purple stone is 1,000 times rarer than diamonds. Even the Tanzanian government has sounded the alarm, the mines for this stone are running dry. Once the last purple gem is pulled from the Earth, that’s it. No more tanzanite. It is amazing for us to find a cache of stones this large and graded this high for color. Staying true to our contrarian nature, we’ve decided to lower the price of one of the world’s rarest and most sought after gemstones. Our Men’s Kilimanjaro Tanzanite Ring features an extra large, 3-4/5 carat cabochon set in 14k gold over sterling silver. Only Tanzanite carries the distinct violet-blue hue. This is a ring designed to impress and it does not disappoint. 
LIMITED AVAILABILITY. We can’t guarantee our supplies will last long.
