Tsavorite Jewelry Born from the Green Gemstone of East-Africa
Tsavorite jewelry is a relatively new — although hugely popular — phenomenon, but the tsavorite gemstone itself has a long geological history. This radiant green gemstone was formed millions of years before women started swooning over tsavorite rings, tsavorite bracelets and other tsavorite jewelry.
A British geologist named Bridges finally discovered tsavorite in 1967, during a gemstone-hunting trip to the perilous East-African bushland. He discovered the vivid green gemstone near Tsavo National Park, which became the gemstone's namesake. Gemstone specialists and jewelry distributors like Tiffany & Co. immediately took notice, understanding how special a find it was.
Tsavorite gemstones come in a spectrum of greens, varying from light spring green to vibrant blue-green to dark forest green — all colors that invigorate and refresh. This new-gem-on-the-block holds its own against gemstone classics like rubies and diamonds, due to an especially high refractive index that results in exceptional brilliance. This stunning gemstone is also treasured for its hardness, which makes tsavorite jewelry, even tsavorite rings, very wearable.
Despite all this, tsavorite jewelry is relatively affordable for a gemstone of this quality. This is evidenced by Ross-Simons' special collection of tsavorite jewelry, which includes stunningly unique tsavorite bracelets, tsavorite rings, tsavorite necklaces and tsavorite earrings.
