As with many gemstones, the darker, more vivid Tanzanite's colour the more valuable it is; and dark blue Tanzanite is currently amongst the most desired, and therefore most expensive gemstones in the world. Hailed as the gemstone of the 20th century, it has been recommended to wear Tanzanite as an anti-depressant, due to the nurturing, emotionally supportive and cheering energies it is said to bestow. It was added to the official birthstone list in 2002, for the month of December.
Photographs have been taken in a number of different lighting conditions for a true representation of the pendant. Please be aware that we use a macro lens to photograph our items close up and allow you to see details, this may make them appear bigger on the screen than in person, so please make sure you read the dimensions and weights listed for clarification.
White Gold is an alloy of Gold and at least one white metal (usually nickel, Silver, or Palladium).
White gold's properties vary depending on the metals used and their proportions. The term White Gold is used very loosely in the industry to describe karat gold alloys with a whitish hue. The term "white" covers a large spectrum of colours that borders or overlaps pale yellow, tinted brown, and even very pale rose. The alloys used in the jewellery industry are Gold–Palladium–Silver and Gold–Nickel–Copper–Zinc. The nickel used in some White Gold alloys can cause an allergic reaction when worn over long periods (also notably on some wristwatch casings). Gold is rarely pure Gold, even before another metal is added to make a White Gold alloy and often contains a mercury alloy from its production, which can cause an allergic reaction. Where possible I source my White Gold from within the EU where the usual mix is the former. It is impossible to know the mix in a preloved or vintage item, sadly; I usually have the item re-plated with Rhodium to minimise any risk. All new White Gold items are enhanced with Rhodium plating. To preserve this plating, avoid swimming in your jewellery as chlorine, in particular, can cause faster degradation. Chlorine is present in small amounts in tap water, so it is best to avoid getting your jewellery wet where possible. It is a simple matter to have items re-plated.
