Tanzanite was recently named a December birthstone due to its popularity.
It was only discovered in 1967. At that time, Saks Fifth Avenue in New York did not want to sell it. They believed it would not be popular.
Tiffany & Co. then branded this gem as Tanzanite and got it on the market.
This is a gorgeous Tanzanite strand that we have at llyn strong fine jewelry. We have a huge variety of simple to complex clasps that fit it.
Many gemstones have interesting stories like this, and we would be happy to tell you all about the ones we carry. Stop by to see these wonders!
