With its vibrant blend of deep purple and blue, Tanzanite engagement rings are the perfect stone for brides looking for something that truly stands out. This stone is found only in a specific area within Tanzania. With a Mohs hardness rating of 6 – 6.5, it is not the hardest stone. It is, however, one of the most beautiful stones. The rich colour of this stone is unique, with most stones being dark. Some are lighter in colour. Working well with diamonds and every type of metal, Tanzanite is an exquisite choice for engagement rings.
Exquisite Tanzanite Engagement Rings
Looking for some inspiration for your engagement ring? Here are some of the most beautiful Tanzanite rings to inspire your dream ring.
Classic and elegant, oval halo rings are a timeless style that will never date. This ring features an oval-cut Tanzanite stone that takes centre stage. It is surrounded by tiny pave diamonds that extend within the band. Cool-tone metals such as platinum and white gold work perfectly with this style of ring.
Infinity rings are rich in romantic symbolism, representing the ongoing love in your relationship and marriage. Tiny Tanzanite pave stones are encrusted on one of the looping bands, with diamonds on the other. This ring features a diamond in its centre. If you’re looking to add some colour in a subtle way, this ring will be perfect.
Another ring that is symbolic and romantic is the three-stone ring. This ring represents your past, present, and future, with the centre stone (representing your present) being the largest stone. In this simple design, a Tanzanite stone is in the centre, with smaller diamonds flanking the stone. Platinum works well for this ring, bringing out the cool tones of the Tanzanite.
For brides-to-be who prefer something timeless and simple, you can never go wrong with a solitaire ring. This ring has a pale rose gold band, with a single Tanzanite in a solitaire setting. Although the warmer tones of the metal help to contrast beautifully with the blue-purple colour of the centre stone, cooler-toned metals would work equally well.
Pear cut stones are also known as teardrop stones. This cut is elegant and flattering. It can be worn facing upwards or downwards. With a delicate layer of pave stones forming a halo, this ring is even more feminine. Rose gold helps to offset the colour of the Tanzanite stone, resulting in a ring that is unique yet not over the top.
A popular choice in ring designs, split band rings are also known as split shank rings. These rings have a band that is divided into two bands that typically flank the centre stone. Bands can be simple metal or adorned with pave stones. Some, like this ring, may have a twisted band that further adds to their beauty.
Ballerina rings are ultra-feminine. They get their name from their tutu-like design. Many have multiple layers that surround a centre stone. This ring has a single layer of pave stones, with a Tanzanite in the centre. If you’re looking for a ring that has plenty of sparkle, this is sure to be a great choice. It works well in yellow gold but would be equally beautiful in rose gold or platinum.
Aside from its rarity and unique colour, Tanzanite is also a stone that is versatile enough to work with just about every style of ring.
