This unique piece had a previous life in Italy.

The story: Exclusively extracted in Tanzania from which they take their name, tanzanites are fascinating stones. Originally in a brownish shade, they reveal a spectacular purplish-blue hue when heated. This is why their late discovery (1967) was an accident: legend has it that violent storms lit bushfires on the hills of Merelani, near Kilimanjaro. Upon the return of the shepherds who had fled away from the blaze were revealed gorgeous blue pebbles.Their blue color has earned them to be associated with happiness and prosperity among the Maasai. Until then unknown to gemologists, this new stone caused a sensation in the jewelry world and remains to this day a highly coveted stone.
