Tiny Tanzanite Drops

Tiny Tanzanite Drops


Small natural tanzanite stones are paired with a silver bead in these small stud earrings.

Tanzanite, one choice for December's birthstone and once considered a less expensive substitute for sapphire, is found in one place in the world, the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. Discovered in the late 1960s in Tanzania, this stone exhibits a rich violet-blue color for which the gemstone is treasured; often it is heat-treated to achieve this color. Colors range from blue to purple, although tanzanite is rarely a pure blue, but almost always displaying overtones of purple.

The sterling silver posts are handmade.
