Who we are
The Tanzanite Experience Limited is a young, dynamic, innovative and professional company first established in early 2015. With the invaluable dedication of its team, as well as the extensive support of all major suppliers of Tanzanite, local and international stakeholders, the company is on the road to a major repositioning of the local gemstone industry. It is managed by experienced personnel sensitive to the gemstone industry and client needs.
The Tanzanite Experience is a fast-growing retail concept store with outlets in Arusha, Manyara Region, Tarangire, Ngorongoro, Serengeti, and Zanzibar. The flagship store in the center of Arusha at Blue Plaza also has the “only tanzanite museum in the world.”
Visitors not only get to admire and feel Tanzanite stones and jewelry, they get to understand the history behind the discovery of the mythic jewel, experience the whole mining process through a replicated mine shaft and further appreciate the grading process and how Tanzanite is appraised through the 4 C’s system: ‘Color, Clarity, Cut and Carat Weight’. The Tanzanite Experience offers a wide selection of stones and jewelry with all gemstones cut and shaped by professional Tanzanians who are highly experienced and skilled.
In addition, the stores house a special collection of necklaces and earrings from the Maasai Women’s Project, a local initiative empowering Maasai tribe women from the mining area of Merelani with their own business venture. This is one of many projects and charities that The Tanzanite Experience promotes and supports.
The Tanzanite Experience is unique as it is the only company in Tanzania with direct access to a certification lab. This lab ensures that every gemstone sold is fully certified under laboratory conditions by geological experts and has its own unique number alongside a certificate detailing the specifics of the stone. These certificates are internationally recognized.
We are a company that strives hard to provide its customers with the most elegant Tanzanite pieces, whether purchased in store or through worldwide shipping.
