Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Blue Tanzanite Necklaces

Traditionally “Something Blue” referred to love and fidelity. In modern day era, however, “Something Blue” typically refers to an extravagant piece of tanzanite jewelry that you will wear exactly three times in your life – once at your wedding, once at an anniversary and the third time because the thought of how much you spent on that tanzanite necklace changes the color of your face. Suppose you could take your father’s old blue handkerchief, assuming that he had one, but the thought of sharing this with your friends changes the color of your face as well, so you find yourself right back at the jewelry store. The question now is, what are your options? The good news is that the number of tanzanite necklaces with blue stones and accents of different shapes resembles the number of McDonald’s restaurants in the U.S. – plentiful and inexhaustible. More specifically, blue tanzanite stones and accents can include rings and earrings as well as affordable rings with topaz gemstones, diamond necklaces with sapphires and blue tanzanite cubic zirconia pendants and we reiterate again – “inexhaustible”. In this issue of DT Era we provide what we will refer to as the “Something Blue” foundation, where you can get ideas to apply to your situation and overall jewelry preferences. Brace yourself, as this will be a wild ride.
