Delicate bracelet with tanzanites, topazes and iolites, braided on a purple, silk thread.

Tanzanites symbolise elegance and innocence. It was first discovered in 1967 by Masai shepherds after a fire caused by lightening, in Tanzania. Currently almost all known reserves of tanzanite have been exhausted. Known mining places are located in India and Tanzania.

Did you know that: The stone in the heart-shaped necklace worn by Kate Winslet in the movie "Titanic" was a tanzanite. The fictional story describes the gem as a blue diamond called "Heart of the Ocean" but in reality blue diamonds do not posses such a deep saturation as depicted in the movie.

The word Topaz originates from Topazos, which is a small island located in the Red Sea, where the Romans originally found this beautiful stone. This gem symbolises loyalty, constancy and faithfulness. It is mined in in Australia, Afghanistan, Brazil, the CIS, the United States and South-West Africa.

Iolite is mined in India, China, Madagascar, Sri Lanka and Brazil. Iolite has different colors in different directions in the crystal. This property helped Leif Eriksson and the other legendary Viking explorers that went far out into the Atlantic Ocean to determine the exact position of the sun, and thus navigate safely to the new world and back.

Bracelet length: 18cm

Due to the fact that each Elfjoy bracelet is hand-made, as a single copy, made of natural stones, it may be slightly different from the one shown in the picture. This does not mean, however, that it will be any less charming.
