Watermelon tourmaline is one of the few minerals which incorporates two colors; pink and green. Unlike bi-color which changes gradually from pink to green, watermelon tourmaline has pink that is surrounded by green. This particular slice has been top faceted for two reasons. Firstly, it’s to help the slice to catch the light from all angles. Secondly, it’s to help bring out the color of the stone.
Tourmaline is a very interesting mineral with several unique attributes. First and foremost it is the only gemstone in the world that will hold an electrical charge. Additionally, tourmaline comes in every color in the rainbow. Most of the important tourmaline deposits are found in South America. However, tourmaline can be found on every continent. Here at the gallery we focus in the most rare colors. Tourmaline is known as a jewelers gem as it is very bright, is quite hard, and comes in so many colors.
Sapphires, unbeknownst to many people, come in every color in the rainbow. From deep rich blues, to greens and even fancy pink and purple tones. In this set, our designer has used white sapphires to accent the watermelon tourmaline. The total weight of the sapphires is .39 carats. Additionally, the fancy pink sapphire is .33 carats in total weight.
The 14kt yellow gold has been cast in the same shape as the slice to exaggerate its shape. The 14kt also helps to maintain it’s polish and is a stronger alloy than 18kt. Also, this allows for a stronger prong to hold in the larger Tourmaline slice. Come visit us at the gallery and see this fantastic pendant in person.
