Tantalizing Tanzanite Engagement Rings

Updated on September 2, 2012

Tantalizing Tanzanite Engagement Rings

Beautiful Tanzanite engagement rings are the perfect choice for a woman who loves purple or violet hues. It is also an unusual choice and perfect for making a statement.

Whether you are surprising your lady, or shopping with her knowledge, I am sure you are very nervous. I have included some general information about Tanzanite for you to read. There is also a section on engagement ring metals so you can familiarize yourself with the available options.

Tanzanite, like other gemstone engagement rings, are usually less expensive than diamond rings, so often a larger stone can be purchased than if a diamond was bought. While the size of the stone is not important to every woman, a large, beautiful Tanzanite would take her breath away.

I have selected several beautiful Tanzanite rings, mostly in gold, but some silver and platinum for you to view. I hope you find one that will work for your needs. Remember, a lady can tell when an engagement ring was chosen with care and will treasure a carefully selected ring!

About Tanzanite

Tanzanite Engagement Rings

Tanzanite is named for the African country Tanzania, where it was first discovered in 1967.

Since Tanzanite is only found in an small area of the Rift Valley in Africa, it is quite rare compared to other gems that are found in different places in the world.

Tanzanite is various shades of blue and purple. The color of the gemstones can change noticeably under different lighting conditions. This is very popular with some people!

The blue-purple-violet hues available are very appealing to women, especially those who are fond of purple. Most, if not all, Tanzanite is heat treated to enhance the color.

About Engagment Ring Metals

Tanzanite Engagement Rings

Engagement rings are created in many different kinds of metal. If you are not sure which to purchase, look at your lady's current jewelry. If she wears mostly white gold, then that is probably the kind of ring she would prefer. If you still aren't sure, read through the list of metals and some of their advantages below.

Platinum is the most expensive metal used for engagement rings. It is a very dense, white metal. It is durable and it doesn't reflect is own color into the stone. Since platinum is so dense, it wears very well. This is a great metal choice for women with gold and other metal allergies.

Naturally soft gold is combine with other metals to strengthen it and this can also change the color. Yellow is gold's natural color, but white gold seems to be the most sought after color of gold today. The gold used in jewelry, whether yellow or white, is either 10K, 14K, or 18K. 10K is the least expensive because it contains less gold, but it is still a great choice.

Jewelers also create engagement and wedding rings in sterling silver. Many women prefer the look of silver, as well as the lessened risk of gold or nickel allergies. Silver engagement rings are a great choice for women who can't wear gold.

Rings made of alternate metals such as palladium, titanium, and tungsten are more popular than ever. These are inexpensive options and can work well for deployed military personnel, people in certain trades, or anyone that wants an incredibly durable ring. Usually these types of rings cannot be re-sized.
