Whether you are looking for a necklace or bracelet, earrings or a unique engagement ring, Janai Jewellery is a name you should remember when it comes to the majesty of alluring gemstones. That being said, and perhaps lesser known, at least from a mainstream perspective, Tanzanite is a rare gem that Janai regularly works with. It is found mostly in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania hence it’s a beautiful and unique name. Tanzanite has a deep purplish blue colour which only features in these beautiful gemstones, creating a distinct point of difference. While not the hardest stone out there, Janai Jewellery recommends that a Tanzanite stone isn’t the best for everyday use, unless it’s well protected in its setting such as a exquisite halo. So if you are in the market for a rare gemstone such as Tanzanite, then Janai Jewellery is happy to help.
