The winter blues have nothing on December’s birthstones: tanzanite, blue topaz, and blue zircon.
December’s birthstones are relatively inexpensive, but their beauty rivals even precious gemstones.
Let Suzy Levian guide you:
Tanzanite is the exquisite blue-purple variety of the mineral zoisite that is only found in one part of the world. Named for its limited geographic origin in Tanzania, tanzanite has quickly risen to popularity since its relatively recent discovery.
Zircon is an underrated gemstone that’s often confused with synthetic cubic zirconia due to similar names and shared use as diamond simulants. Few people realize that zircon is a spectacular natural gemstone available in a variety of colors.
Most blue topazes come out of the earth colorless or pale blue. A two-step heat and radiation laboratory treatment is then used to turn these stones vivid greenish blue. Blue topazes are not only beautiful but eye catchy. Here at Suzy Levian we love the way they bring our rings to the next level!
