Rubellite Tourmaline (19.82ct), blue sapphire, ruby, diamond, tanzanite, 18k yellow and rose gold. Measure 20mm x 64mm.
The exceptional clarity and rich color of the rubellite tourmaline shield shapes is an unparalleled find today. These shields sit point side up and are complimented by an underbelly of ruby and sapphire cabochons. Articulated tentacles of 18k rose gold are accented with tiny diamonds, and pear-shaped, almost electric, tanzanites drip off like drops of water. As you move, so too do these mesmerizing jellyfish, evoking mysterious splendor. Dual clip and post backing (available without post for the non-pierced ear).
Why Is This Unique?
When I came across this particular pair of perfectly matched rubellites, I was immediately hooked by the unique shield-shaped cut of the stones. And I fell in love with their incredible deep color, utter clarity – not to mention the sheer size of them! After months of trying to design these shield-shaped Rubellites into the perfect art-deco earrings, I finally acknowledged what I had known all along: that they were really meant to be set upside down. And so, I turned them into creatures of the deep.
Jellyfish have always enchanted me with their fluidity, their translucence, their grace and stealth. These gems perfectly embody a jellyfish, with their deep color reminiscent of a certain pinkish variety. The cut of the stone glimmers in one angle of light and subtly winks before disappearing into the next – just like the elusiveness of a jellyfish.
Known as the rainbow stone because it comes in such a staggering variety of colors, the tourmaline has a long history that spans continents and realms – used as a gem for centuries in many a crown jewel. Deep red and magenta tourmaline gemstones represent a highly desired category known as Rubellite, a name reserved for specimens with especially rich and vibrant color. The purer the red, the more costly the gem. Like emerald, rubellite typically grows with many inclusions and most has visible inclusions. Eye clean stones of excellent color over 15 carats are rare and much sought after.
