The cost of the Tanzanite jewelry is one of the factors that will determine what you'll select. The cost of tanzanite is influenced by a lot of factors such as the carat, color, cut and clarity; commonly known as the 4Cs of Tanzanite. A big violet-blue color stone that is perfectly cut and has the best clarity will be more expensive than a lighter shade stone.
Your personal style and the occasions you attend/visit will influence your selection of tanzanite jewelry. As far as personal style, some people prefer simple designs regardless of the occasion, while others go for statement pieces.
For daily wear, simple designs will work in your favor. For occasions where you need to make a statement, more elaborate and larger sized designs would be the ideal choice.

The question of where to wear your Tanzanite jewelry is common among people with this fine gemstone
Generally, Tanzanite jewelry can be worn on any occasion depending on the design of the jewelry.
Tanzanite jewelry with rounded edges like oval shaped can be worn for everyday use. Pieces with cornered shapes like princess or emerald cut can be reserved for special occasions to minimize the chances of bumps and scratches that might take a toll on your jewelry’s edges.
Certain types of jewelry can also be worn for everyday use such as in engagement and wedding rings as long as the gemstone has been properly set.
Since Tanzanite is a delicate gem, everyday use can cause damage to your jewelry especially for people with an active lifestyle. The better option for everyday use is wearing Tanzanite rings or necklace pendants.
Let’s take a look at how you can add your different types of tanzanite jewelry into your outfits.
Wearing a Tanzanite necklace highly depends on the design of your outfit. If your outfit covers your neck, it’s wise to leave your necklace at home. You can also skip your necklace if you will be adding a neck scarf to your outfit. The scarf will hide the necklace.
If your outfit design leaves your neck area bare, that’s a perfect chance to wear your tanzanite necklace.
Tanzanite earrings are a great finishing touch to your outfit. Care has to be taken on the choice of Tanzanite earring based on your outfit. For formal wear, you can go for elegant but simple designs.
Avoid jewelry pieces with complicated designs or patterns on formal occasions, those are best reserved for a social or informal occasion.
When going for casual outfit stud earrings are the way to go.
You can never go wrong with a bracelet unless you are wearing a long-sleeved outfit. If you are going for a short-sleeved outfit, a bracelet will complete your look. Since Tanzanite is by itself a statement item, avoid wearing other bracelets or bangles on the same hand. Let it stand out!
Fashion wise, Tanzanite rings will work for any outfit you choose. The most caution to be taken on choosing a Tanzanite ring to complement your outfit is on the type of occasion that you are attending.
You will also need to consider the amount of physical activity that you'll be performing. It increases the chance of putting a strain on your ring. It may not be a great idea to wear a tanzanite ring for a night out, but might be perfectly fine for a gala dinner.
Tanzanite jewelry with a very light shade of violet-blue will go with almost any outfit. However, the intense blue colored Tanzanite needs more care. The intense blue tanzanite has been known to work with black, white, gray and a range of pale colors.
However, with fashion, a little bit of creativity goes a long way. Don’t let these recommendations stop you from experimenting what works best for you.
