Celebrating National Selfie Day With a #Gemfie

Celebrating National Selfie Day With a #Gemfie Tanzanite cluster ring

I never need an excuse to wear a fabulous piece of jewellery, but today is a special day because I’m celebrating National Selfie Day With a #gemfie. You may be wondering what exactly a “gemfie” is? Well, according to Gemporia, who came up with the concept, it’s a selfie with added bling. I was very kindly gifted this beautiful Tanzanite and White Zircon ring which, I think you’ll agree, adds plenty of sparkle to my selfie. The sterling silver ring features 51 gems with a total carat weight of 5.7700Cts – no shortage of bling there!

Tanzanite is a relative newcomer to the jewellery scene as it was only discovered in the 1960’s.

The name “tanzanite” was given to the gemstone because the world’s only known deposit of commercial importance is in northern Tanzania. It is actually a colour variety of the mineral zoisite, ranging from blue to bluish purple to bluish violet. The mines are all located in an area of about eight square miles in the Merelani Hills, near the base of Mount Kilimanjaro. Tanzanite is a relative newcomer to the jewellery scene as it was only discovered in the 1960’s. It’s claimed to be 1,000 times rarer than diamond, so considering its scarcity, it’s surprisingly affordable. I’m absolutely delighted to be adding this stunning ring to my jewellery collection. Gemporia has a huge range of jewellery to suit every style and budget. Whether you’re looking for a gift or just want to treat yourself, it’s worth popping over for a browse.
