Caring for Tanzanite

  • CLEANING

    Clean tanzanite with a soft brush in a solution of soapy water (e.g. dish-wash liquid) over a bowl and rinse well with a soft dry brush. Avoid harsh chemicals and ensure that the drain is closed / plugged.

  • ULTRASONICY CLEAN

    Avoid ultrasonic cleaning as this uses a high-frequency vibration which can facilitate cleavage in certain gemstones.

  • STORING TANZANITE

    Store your tanzanite jewellery in a protective pouch or box, and keep separate from other jewellery to avoid scratching.

  • WEARING TANZANITE

    Remove your ring before you decide to take on any type of activity. This includes cleaning the house, gardening or exercising.

  • Once a year make sure to take your tanzanite for a professional clean and buff at your local jeweller.
  • If you consider yourself an active person, rather opted for a tanzanite pendant or necklace than a tanzanite ring. This way your tanzanite will be less exposed to hard surfaces where it might get scratched or damaged.
  • Avoid exposing your tanzanite gemstone to sudden temperature changes, harsh chemicals or extreme heat.
  • Take your tanzanite jewellery to a reputable jeweller once a year to inspect the setting.
  • If you decide to make any alterations to your tanzanite jewellery item make sure to remove the gemstone beforehand.
  • Only put on your tanzanite jewellery after you’ve applied makeup, hairspray, perfume or skin cream. Otherwise, the products might leave a residue that will make the gemstone look dull.
