Lapis, sapphire, turquoise and topaz are all lovely shades of blue, showcasing Mother Nature’s spectrum. Tanzanite is a unique blue, like midnight sky on a deep blue sea with purple glints that make you want to look deeper and longer. The stone seems to change its mood whether it’s paired with white or yellow metal, morphing from modern cool to Byzantine warmth.
