|Meet a girls new best friend “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend,” sang Hollywood’s darling in 1953. But that was a full 14 years before tanzanite was discovered in the foothills of the Kilimanjaro, so we can’t blame the beloved starlet for getting it wrong. The vivacious violet blue of tanzanite was first discovered in 1967 and the world instantly fell in love. Thanks to its single location and limited supply, tanzanite is actually an incredible 1,000 times rarer than diamonds, so this is a stone you should really only buy for someone extra special. Our Tanzanite Vivaz Ring features 25 tantalizing tanzanite stones weighing a full two carats, set in sterling silver. Tanzanite’s famed rarity means supplies are limited and time is running out. One recent estimate suggested there is less than a 30-year supply of tanzanite left. Every carat of tanzanite that comes out of the ground is now more expensive than the one before it, but our two carat tanzanite ring is available for our exclusive Stauer price! Now, that’s a small price to pay for a girl’s new best friend.
