Brasil

July 1, 2014

With the World Cup in Brazil, we thought we would focus on a beautiful stone that comes from the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais.  Bi-color tourmaline is unique in that it has zones of color, very often greens with pinks.  It's also known as watermelon tourmaline.

 

This fancy-cut watermelon tourmaline is surrounded by diamonds in 18K yellow gold.  We made the mounting to fit around this uniquely-cut gemstone.  This one sure is one-of-a-kind.  I'd like to be able to say that we could make another piece just like this one, but that's a stretch.  We source our gemstones from dealers in Brazil and our designers take what we source and design around the stones.  This is a perfect example of our jewelry design process.

 

Tourmaline is the birthstone for October (along with opal).  Tourmaline is also the gem for your 8th anniversary.
