Tanzanite and Turquoise - December's Birthstones

Did you know December's birthstones are tanzanite and turquoise?

If you were born in December you have two beautiful blue birthstones to choose from. Each is vibrant and beautiful in their own ways...


Tanzanite is one of the main blue gemstones with its vivid blue and violet hues. This captivating stone is found in northern Tanzania, hence the name. The Tanzanite gemstone was actually named by Tiffany and Co. in the 1960s when they introduced it to the market. The company recognized the unique beauty and allure of this gemstone and decided to give it a name that would capture its essence.

One of the reasons why tanzanite is a popular stone is because of its rarity and exceptional brilliance and color saturation. Its vibrant blue and violet tones make it a truly eye-catching gemstone. Whether set in a ring, necklace, or earrings, tanzanites are sure to make a statement.



Turquoise is a gemstone like no other. Itsopaque stone, vibrant hues and distinctive veining patterns make it instantly recognizable. Its colours varying from a pale sky blue to a deep greenish-blue often resemble colors of the ocean or a lush forest.

This is a stone that has captivated people all over the world for thousands of years. It has been treasured and used in jewellery in many ancient civilizations. Turquoise jewellery is still worn and adorned today. Its vivid colors and unique characteristics make it a timeless favorite. From delicate earrings to statement necklaces, turquoise adds a touch of elegance and individuality to any piece.

Another advantage of turquoise is its affordability compared to other gemstones. While precious gems like diamonds and rubies can be quite expensive, turquoise offers a more accessible option without compromising on beauty.
