These studs are the perfect size to wear everyday. These studs are made from raw tanzanite. They have an electroformed rhodium plate bezel around them to create these unique earrings. The posts are made from surgical stainless steel which is a hypoallergenic metal. There is a slight patina given to the posts.
Tanzanite is a rare blue gem and a popular alternative to blue sapphire. It can only be mined in the country, Tanzania. Tanzanite is one of the birthstones for the month of December. In natural light, tanzanites can appear an almost sapphire blue. In fluorescent light, they may appear more violet or amethyst-like.
Each pair has been hand selected from our self mined crystals and paired based on size and shape. Each pair will vary slightly.
