This ring is just beautiful - this large, clear oval cut rare copper bearing tourmaline is over 7 carats of sparkling pastel pink. The photographs were taken in direct sunlight, so that you can see the closest accurate depiction of this Tourmaline's beautiful baby pink color. The video was shot indoors, so you can see the color from that lighting perspective. Typically, pink and red (rubellite) tourmalines are class III gemstones, meaning there is usually a lot of inclusions present in the gemstone. This gemstone is eye clean - another rarity.
We designed a regal 18K yellow gold setting for this important statement ring, with large diamonds on the halo surrounding the tourmaline, while there are diamonds on the side of the halo and diamonds on the basket holding the gemstone - we didn't have to do that, but in order to showcase this important gemstone properly, we couldn't help ourselves! And the diamonds - all colorless, clear, bright white and sparkling in their own right at every angle. Double prongs hold that gorgeous gemstone securely. Quality matters.
A question we are often asked, "Does it in person look like the photographs?" Yes! Even better - we photograph in direct sunlight, but the sparkle is truly impossible to catch on camera.

Paraiba Tourmalines were first discovered in the 1980s in Brazil. Today, most of the Paraiba Tourmaline is mined in Mozambique. Paraibas are copper-bearing and because of this, they absolutely become neon in any kind of lighting. Besides copper, the German Foundation for Gemstone Research has also found gold content within Paraiba Tourmaline, equaling to about 8.6 parts per every million. Although this gemstone is not the typical green or blue associated with Paraiba tourmaline, it is copper bearing, and thus very rare.
