This is a beautiful 18k solid gold ring set with an incredible rubellite (red) tourmaline. The piece is based on Balinese designs with intricate granulation around the bezel and some extra detail on the four ordinal points of the setting.
The gemstone is from Brazil and is some of the best red tourmaline I’ve seen. It has deep saturated red color with a hint of pink in it that makes it brighter. It is clean and glassy with no visible inclusions. Like all of our gemstones, this one is completely natural and has not been enhanced or treated in any way. The first four photos were taken indoors and the tourmaline appears deep dark red. The last photo was taken outside in bright sunlight and you can see the gemstone takes on a brighter color with a touch of pink.
The ring at its widest point is approx. 3/4” wide (at the front – top to bottom) and the band is approx. 1/8” at the back.
