About Marquise Cut

A member of the brilliant-cut family, the marquise was named after a mistress of Louis XIV, Marquise de Montespan. Legend has it that her smile inspired the design. Shaped like an elongated ellipse, the marquise is also called the navette.

Great symbolism lies behind the marquise cut. Women in favor of this style are thought to be daring, charming, and innovative. Always on the go, they love excitement, turmoil, and travel. Marquise lovers seek out new physical and intellectual experiences.

About Tanzanite

About Tanzanite

Tanzanite gets its name from its origin of Tanzania. In 1967, Manuel d'Souza discovered this extraordinary variety of the mineral zoisite while searching for sapphires. The Tanzania mines are located at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Widely seen as a geological phenomenon, this precious gemstone formed in the earth's surface over 585 million years ago during the pan-African event (the shifting of continents). It's also trichroic in nature, meaning that it radiates blue, violet, and burgundy from its crystallographic axes, depending upon the stone cut.

A commemorative gemstone for the 24th wedding anniversary as well as December birthdays, tanzanite is thought to balance emotions and clear the heart chakra, helping people accept change. Ranking a 6 or 7 on Moh's hardness scale, it's considered to be a soft gemstone and more fragile than sapphires. To clean tanzanite, use a gentle detergent and a soft brush. Allow ample drying time before storing. Ultra-sonic devices and steam-based cleaners are not recommended.
