18KT Yellow Gold 1.65 Carat Oval Shaped Tanzanite and Diamond Ring


SKU CEJ00003329

This 18kt yellow gold ring is centered with a 1.65 carat oval shaped tanzanite. A bow shaped band, square in nature, rises above the finger pinching just slightly before it dips and tapers towards the stone. Four baguette cut diamonds, are channel-set, 2 per side, across the top while two channel-set rows, of three diamonds each, spill over the shoulders. The sixteen diamonds combine for .27 carats and range from VVS-2 to SI clarity, all with G-H colour. Tanzanite is the blue and violet variety of the mineral zoisite and is uniquely trichroic. This means that in its rough form, it radiates three different colours from each of its crystallographic axes: blue, violet and red. Tanzanite is found in only one place on earth, near majestic Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. According to a Tanzanian geologist, the circumstances that led to its formation 585 million years ago were so exceptional that the likelihood of finding tanzanite anywhere else on earth is one in a million, making it a thousand times rarer than diamonds. Discovered in 1967 making it relatively new to the coloured stone galaxy.
