Tanzanite Gems

   Loose Gems Tanzanite, Custom Cut Gemstones

Tanzanite as the name suggests, derives it's name from the African country Tanzania. While many gems have been named after the location in which they were first found, Tanzanite and Tanzania have some very special relationship. There is no other location on this planet where Tanzanite is found and Tanzania remains the only country that has deposits of this gem. This makes the gem stone rarer than a diamond, this is no small achievement.

While many gems have been known to mankind for centuries or thousands of years, Tanzanite has been a relatively new entry to the world of gems and jewelry. It was Tiffany's who launched Tanzanite gemstones and jewelry, and they did it with a terrific media blitz. The media hype managed by Tiffany was so very effective that the gemstone has since remained in the upper price bracket until today. Despite all this, you could say that more than 40% of gem lovers are not aware of what Tanzanite is!

This blue-violet beauty as we know it, is very different at the time that it is mined in the Arusha area of Tanzania. In rough form, the gem appears more like an ordinary rock, a murky greenish brown in color. It is hard to believe that there is such a gorgeous gem within that ordinary looking piece of stone. The rough Tanzanite is heated to increase it's clarity and change it's color. Once heated, cut and polished it enters the gem markets to tantalize some of the wealthiest gem and jewelry buyers.

When you talk about the color of Tanzanite gems, two distinct possibilities are always present. You could have a stone with a high proportion of purple-violet and minor hints of blue. Or you could lay your hands on a piece of Tanzanite gemstone, that has a substantially saturated blue color with only minor visibility of violet and purple. It is hard to say which color shade is better because, both these color variations have their own fan following.

From the color, let us talk about the color saturation of Tanzanite gems. We already mentioned that the color of Tanzanite could be predominantly violet-purple with slight blue hints or vice-versa. Within these two broad color classifications you could have a Tanzanite gem stone that has a pale color, medium color or a deep saturated color. In general, it is the medium and deep color Tanzanite gem that is most sought after. The pale Tanzanite color stones are reserved to low end jewelry or set in sterling silver jewels.

Clarity is another factor that determines the value of most gems. As long as you are within the 3 carat size range, it is fair to believe that you deserve an eye clean Tanzanite gem without any visible inclusions. This does not mean that, eye Tanzanite gems in the 4 to 6 carat size are extinct! You might just have to be prepared to pay a premium price for such gemstones.

It would be nice if the price of a gem stone was directly related to it's durability! Here are some tips and suggestions on how to look after your Tanzanite gems or jewelry. Tanzanite gems have a hardness of 6.5 to 7, and this is not bad for any gem stone. However the internal construction of this gem is such that, it can crack or brack even with a moderate physical impact. You should therefore not wear your tanzanite jewel when doing heavy physical activity. Ideally, treat your Tanzanite gem stone jewel as a jewel to be worn on special occassions. When cleaning your Tanzanite gemstone jewelry, do not use ultrasonic cleaners as they could damage the gem. Store Tanzanite gems and jewelry in their own pouch or box, this will ensure that the gems are not damaged by hitting against other hard objects.

We are often asked whether, Tanzanite gems are suitable for mens jewelry. This needs to be explained from three distinct angles. Relating to durability, men put their jewelry through substantial degrees of wear and tear. The fact that Tanzanite is not as durable as ruby, sapphire or even tourmaline needs to be considered. The design, type of gem mounting used, craftsmanship and metal weight will all have a direct impact on how sturdy and durable a men's tanzanite gem stone ring is. Regarding the color of Tanzanite, medium to darker color shades are well suited to mens rings and other mens jewelry. Talking about price, the gemstone would be more expensive than topaz, opal, tourmaline or aquamarine. Prices will rise steeply as the gem size increases. This is a relevant issue for mens rings, since most mens gem stone rings would use gems in the larger size range.

Is Kaisilver?

Having established itself as the world's leading online custom jewelry provider, Kaisilver now extends it's merchandise line to include gems. While there is no shortage of gem stones in the global market, reliable sources for the retail buyer requirements are not many. Most retail gem dealers work with limited inventories, this reduces buyer options. Another problem with these small dealers is the lack of information and reliability when it comes to gem authenticity and value for money. Kaisilver with it's wide network of gemstone mining and manufacturing resources, is the best source for gems of all types, shapes, sizes and cuts. With a support team that is compromised of jewelry and gemstone experts, the advice and suggestions made by the team relate to your requirements and not to fixed sales targets. The website shows a small sampling of the gems that we offer. You can infact request for just about any gem on the globe. All gems are sourced directly from the source, closely inspected and then custom cut by our expert cutters. With a buyer base that includes fashion models, government officials, casino and resort owners, lawyers, financial experts, students and professors, doctors and surgeons, sportsmen and newsreaders we have become the preferred choice for quality gems and jewelry. By cutting out middlemen commissions and multiple agents, we provide great value for your money. Our large online operation does not stop us from welcoming even the smallest order. Gold and silver jewelry is custom made with equal attention to quality, material and craftsmanship. You can choose from our designs or send us detailed for the style and design that you need.


How To Order?

The process to order gems and custom jewelry at Kaisilver is similar. We do not expect you to make a rush purchase. We do wish that you take the time to discuss your requirements with our experts. They will be in a position to provide constructive suggestions that will guide you to make well informed buying decisions. Email all your requirements to provide as much inputs as possible to help us make relevant suggestions. For example if you are keen on getting a green gemstone but, are not particular about it being an emerald mention this in your email. Our gem experts might suggest a green tourmaline or even a peridot instead of an emerald. This suggestion would reduce our profit margins but will give you a gem that, is much cheaper and even more durable as compared to an emerald. When it comes to payments we offer some very suitable options. Paypal is the preferred form of payment, it is fair to the buyer and seller. The buyer when using paypal never needs to reveal credit card of bank information to the seller. We also accept direct bank transfers but prefer to do this on a case by case basis. When it comes to online transactions these days, both buyer and seller are afraid of frauds. It is quite possible that you do not feel comfortable working with us at Kaisilver. We sometimes feel a little uncomfortable with certain transactions too and prefer to keep away from them. There have always been fears of processing payments through Western Union money transfers. With the latest fraud reports, fake sellers and even fake buyers have been pulling off many online frauds using this mode of payment. At the same time we do understand that armed forces from the U.S who are stationed in various global positions sometimes have no other mode of payment besides Western Union. We therefore accept this mode of payment but at the same time, request you to avoid this mode if you do not feel comfortable using it. Shipping is done through FEDEX and you can expect a production lead time of around 4 to 5 weeks from the date of order confirmation and receipt of payment. Every jewel is fully custom made and requires the complete attention and concentration of highly skilled craftsmen. When it comes to gems, we could provide faster lead times and this can be discussed for each specific order.
