Tanzanite studs are the new favorite of the jewelry trends, and it could be taxing for a buyer to choose the ideal tanzanite studs shape with the right metal to go with.
Budget and durability are two of the primary concerns while choosing the right metal for your tanzanite studs. Then there is the overall look – whether you prefer a white metal or tinted metal with the alluring blue stone. The popular metal with tanzanite gemstones remains white metal, but rose gold and yellow gold options are also available in plenty.
Tanzanite stud shapes – cushion shaped tanzanite studs, oval shaped tanzanite studs, princess cut studs, round shaped tanzanite studs and trillion shaped ones being the most popular – can be set in platinum, palladium, white gold, yellow gold, rose gold or sterling silver.
Starting with platinum, its only holdup is the fact that it is extremely expensive and scratches easy. Otherwise it is an ideal luxury metal. It is also the birth metal of Pisces, as well as the best setting option for Virgo, Aquarius and Gemini. If you happen to be one of these four sun sings, set your gorgeous tanzanite studs in platinum for beauty as well as good fortune!
The next, palladium, is perfect for stud settings. Not quite as expensive as platinum but even sturdier and still white, making it a perfect match with cooler toned skin and gemstones.
White gold is not a great idea for daily wear as it does tarnish easy, plus effects sensitive skin, but if your studs are for occasional events then it’s reasonably priced and a beautiful buff silver in color.
Gold is the leading metal of Cancer, Virgo and Sagittarius. Besides its horoscopic properties, it is also a timeless jewelry setting metal, often preferred by men over white metals as these have a more earthy feel. For those of you who aren’t comfortable with the bright yellow shine of gold and wish to let your tanzanite do all the talking, you can go for rose gold or buffed matt finished surfaces.
The last is sterling silver, again a great option but not for daily wear or for those of you who have sensitive skin. As it is an alloy of silver and other metals, only must be cautious of allergies. Pisces, Capricorn, Cancer and Aries are all sun signs who share a positive relationship with silver, it being either their ruling metal or one that is ideal in combination.
Each skin stone also calls for a variation in metal color – a simple categorization that helps you show off your jewelry better. If you have cool colored skin – identified by bluish veins – then stick to white metals while warmer skin stones – identifiable by greenish veins – may choose to wear copper, brass, yellow gold and rose gold.
Be it modest princess cut studs, unique pear shaped tanzanite earrings, tanzanite with diamond studs or elaborate three or four stoned ones, you must choose your metal with care. Thankfully,with the interplay of factors such as budget, utilization, skin stone, gender and horoscope, narrowing it down to the perfect metal is just a tad easier.
