Tourmaline Jewelry- Gem of the Rainbow
The Gemstone of the Rainbow
The name ‘Tourmaline’ comes from the Singhalese ‘tura mali,’ which means ‘gem with mixed colors.’ In fact, an Egyptian legend explains that the Tourmaline gem is very colorful because it went through a rainbow as it was created. The stone comes in many different shades including pink, dark blue or green. It was used throughout history to protect oneself from dangers and misfortune. Made out of elements such as aluminum, lithium, iron, or magnesium, this semi-precious stone was actively traded by the Dutch East India Company from Sri Lanka. The gem comes in different types, which are schorl, dravite and elbaite. The schorl is the popular species of tourmaline and accounts for more than three thirds of the stone. California is one of the biggest producers of Tourmaline and remained second in production of this gem in the last five years.
Tourmaline offers more color options than any other precious stones. It can be worn in a variety of situations from special occasions to everyday use. Its rich color and bold reflections can add originality to any outfits. Many of its variations can be combined together in a necklace, bracelet or can be worn separately as a solitaire in a ring or earrings. Many metals can also be used when wearing tourmaline: although sterling silver or white gold are preferred for a more classic look, yellow or even rose gold add an additional touch of color to the jewel as well as a ‘vintage touch’. It is the October’s birthstone and can make a great birthday present.
Tourmaline Jewelry comes in many different types of jewel because of its many shades and reflections. One very popular item is the necklace made out of several colors of the gem with yellow gold, or rings combining diamonds and tourmaline. Blue tourmaline is also often used in engagement rings or pendants. Another option is the all-time classic Valentine’s Day present, purple or pink heart-shaped tourmaline stone, which can be worn as a pendant or on a ring. Having a tourmaline gem on a wedding band or engagement ring can also make you stand out from the crowd and create a unique and timeless gift for your loved one.
Choosing a Tourmaline Gem
Just like diamond jewels, tourmaline stones are graded in color, cut, clarity and carat. When buying a tourmaline Gem, always ask for a certification. You can be easily tricked for an unscrupulous professional trying to sell you a low-quality stone or lying about its characteristics. The certification should indicate where the gem is from, and its size, weight, as well as quality grade. Always use extra caution when buying any precious or semi-precious gems online, and try to contact the seller personally before taking any other action. It is very common for unethical sellers to try to advertise fake stones or simply be a scam.
When buying a Tourmaline gem for a friend or family member, always check to see which color he or she prefers. A subtle color like light blue or green may be better than brighter shades for an engagement ring or wedding band, as it will be worn every day.
