Tanzanite is the blue and violet variety of the mineral zoisite and is only found in Tanzania, Africa. Tanzanite is trichroic and depending on the tilt of the gemstone shows different colors ranging violetish blue to violet.
Tanzanite was discovered in 1967. Tiffany & Company saw its value and made a deal to become its main distributor. The company named the stone tanzanite and began a big publicity campaign in 1968.
This pretty solid 14K yellow gold ring features 3 genuine tanzanite gemstones. The ring is size 8 1/4. The setting is 3/16 inch north/south, 1/2 inch east/west and sits 3/16 inch off the finger. It weighs 2.9 grams.
The tanzanites are 4.85mm x 3.15mm. They are a medium violet blue. Colors viewed range from medium blue to light violet depending on the angle. They are flanked by 3 tiny round bezel set diamonds on each side.
The ring is hallmarked "P 14K" for 14k plumb gold. It is marked "Thailand."
The ring is circa 1980's and in excellent vintage condition.
