  1. I wanted a Tanzanite engagement ring, but the stone is only a 6.5-7 on the Moh scale. I did my research and found “It has fair to poor toughness and a property called cleavage, which is a tendency to break when struck.” I didn’t want to risk ruining my engagement ring, so I went for my next favorite which is a pink sapphire with a halo and shank of diamonds. I absolutely ADORE it!! ❤️❤️💍
