The Mesmerising World of Blue Gemstones
Blue, the colour of dreams, the hue of the heavens, and the shade of the deepest oceans, has always held a special place in the world of gemstones. At Calla Lily Fine Jewellers, we invite you on an extended journey through the mesmerising world of blue gemstones. Here, fantasy intertwines with elegance, and every piece tells a story of its own.
Blue Tanzanites: The African Enigma
Hailing from the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, the blue tanzanite is a geological marvel. Its vibrant blue-violet tones evoke images of twilight skies and African safaris. But what truly sets the Tanzanite apart is its rarity. Found only in a small region of Tanzania, this gem is a thousand times rarer than diamonds. Its unique composition allows it to radiate in different colours depending on the angle of light. When set in fine jewellery, the Tanzanite’s multifaceted brilliance and depth of colour make it a captivating centrepiece, symbolising exclusivity and luxury.
Blue Sapphires: The Royal Legacy
The blue sapphire, with its deep, velvety blue hue, has been a symbol of nobility, wisdom, and divine favour for centuries. Its durability, second only to diamonds, makes it a favourite for heirloom pieces. The sapphire’s allure lies in its consistency of colour and its ability to reflect light beautifully. At Calla Lily, our sapphires are handpicked, ensuring that each gem reflects a deep, pure blue, making it a timeless choice for rings, necklaces, and tiaras.
Paraiba: The Electric Dream
The Paraiba tourmaline is a recent discovery, but its electric blue-green shade has quickly made it one of the most sought-after gemstones. Originating from Brazil, its neon hue is due to the presence of copper. This gemstone is not just vibrant; it’s luminous, seeming to glow from within. When crafted into jewellery, the Paraiba becomes a radiant focal point, drawing eyes with its unique, electric charm.
Aquamarine: The Mermaid’s Treasure
The aquamarine, named after the Latin words for water and sea, is the blue to greenish-blue variety of beryl. Its pale blue hue is reminiscent of clear, tropical waters. Aquamarines are often large and free from inclusions, making them perfect for statement pieces. Their clarity and transparency, combined with their serene colour, make them a popular choice for necklaces and earrings, evoking the beauty and tranquillity of the sea.
Lagoon Tourmaline: The Whispering Waters
The Lagoon Tourmaline, with its gradient of blue-green shades, is a visual journey. Each gemstone is like a miniature lagoon, with layers of colour ranging from the lightest aqua to the deepest teal. Its unique colour palette is due to a balanced composition of iron and titanium. In jewellery, the Lagoon Tourmaline offers a versatile and vibrant hue, perfect for those looking to make a statement while retaining a touch of elegance.
Blue Zircon: The Starry Night
The blue zircon, often mistaken for the blue diamond, sparkles with an unmatched brilliance. Its fiery intensity, combined with its captivating blue hues, makes it a gemstone par excellence for fine jewellery. Zircons have a high refractive index, which means they play with light in a way that’s both mesmerising and enchanting. Whether set in a ring or a pendant, the blue zircon promises a galaxy of sparkle.
