Tanzanite gemstone made of colored glass or colored cubic zirconia is often traded in the market. Although Tanzanite has never really been synthesized (lab created), numerous other imitation techniques and treatments, like coating, do exist which a buyer must be aware of. To assure yourself of the authenticity and quality, it is much needed to get the stone verified from the gem laboratory. We provide a free gem certificate with each item to leave no room for doubt.
Just like a diamond and other gemstones, Tanzanite also has 4 main price grading factors- Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat weight. Color saturation defines color quality. The depth of color is directly proportional to the rarity and quality of Tanzanite. Deeper the color, more value does it attain. Its value is also highly affected by its clarity. The gemstone with no inclusion and the adequate cut is more valuable. The larger the Tanzanite crystal in a pendant, the more does it cost. Similarly, carat weight plays a crucial role, provided all other factors are constant.
Apart from these factors, the design and the metal used for pendant affect the price of a Tanzanite pendant. A pendant made of premium quality platinum will cost more than that made of silver. Similarly, a pendant with a complicated design will have a higher value than a pendant will a basic structure.
A Tanzanite is comparatively more prone to scratches if compared to a Ruby or a Sapphire. Due to Tanzanite's relative softness, it must be handled with care. Tanzanite pendants can be worn all day long and every day, provided it should not rub against any hard surface.
