This is an 18k solid gold ring with an incredible Paraiba blue tourmaline. The gemstone is from Namibia (the Erongo mine) and is some of the best blue tourmaline I have seen. It is clean and bright and has a deeply saturated blue color that is not too dark not too light. I recently acquired the material to make this ring and while it is beautiful, larger clean pieces are extremely rare.
Don’t be fooled by imitations or treated (heated) apatite with similar color. This is completely natural and it is the real deal.
The design is a simple one with twisted wire around the bezel and twisted wire around the band. The setting is accented with a few tiny gold balls.
The ring at its widest point is approx. 3/8” wide (at the front) and the band is just under 3/16” wide at the back.
