This unusual blue to violet stone is one of the rarest precious gemstones in the world. Found only in Tanzania, experts maintain that the chances of finding it anywhere else in the world is one in a million.

There are many imitations of tanzanite on the market, and customers should insist on an original certificate and guarantee, issued by a qualified gemmologist, when buying tanzanite jewellery. For peace of mind; insist on a Prins & Prins certified tanzanite. The Prins and Prins team is unique in South Africa, with four fully qualified gemmologists who carefully select the finest gems and diamonds.

Although tanzanite is more rare than diamonds are, tanzanites are priced well below diamonds. Are you looking for a loose tanzanite as an investment, or gift, or to make into a beautiful custom designed jewellery masterpiece?
