HAjoomal Fine Jewellery pays a glorious tribute to tanzanite, the blue/violet variety of gem discovered in Arusha at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania in 1967.
Harshad Ajoomal, creative director of the brand, is inspired by tanzanites. “When set right the stone sparkles like the ocean and sky at night filled with thousands of stars.” The delicate gemstone has a lustre of its own and is 1,000 times rarer than diamonds.
The collection emphasises the beauty of the stone encased in geometric forms. Rough, checkerboard cuts and sugarloaf cabochons get the prime spot with emeralds, rubellite, white and champagne diamonds and onyx playing supporting roles. The singular collection consists of ear studs, chandeliers, flexible bracelets, long necklaces and chokers.
