Description

This is an 18k solid gold ring with a beautiful Paraiba blue tourmaline. The design is based on an ancient Etruscan style with intricate twisted wire details.

 The gemstone is from Namibia (the Erongo mine) and is some of the best blue tourmaline I have seen.   It’s color is somewhat rare in that there are only a few localities around the world that produce blue tourmaline in this color value. The most famous is the Paraiba region in Brazil but geologists point out that S. America was once attached to Africa millions of years ago and speculate that this might be why we see similar colors from two very distant areas.  

Larger clean pieces of this material 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.

I’ve tried to capture the true color hue and density in the photographs taking some outdoors in full sunlight. The last photo was taken inside under studio lights where the gemstone appears more deeply saturated.

The ring at its widest point is approx. 7/16” wide (at the front measured top to bottom) and the band is just under  3/16” wide at the back.
