Product description

Paraiba tourmaline has garnered a cult following in the world of fine gemstones due to its distinctive neon-like colors, ranging from turquoise to green, caused by traces of copper content within the crystal structure. First discovered in the Brazilian state of Paraiba in the 1980s, it has since been found in other localities such as Nigeria and Mozambique. The rarity and unique glowing hues of Paraiba tourmaline mean it often commands higher prices than other tourmalines, especially for those stones which possess a bright and saturated color.
The Paraiba tourmaline described—a transparent, 1.28 carat, oval-shaped stone with dimensions of 7.93 x 5.92 x 3.93 mm—exemplifies the allure that makes this gemstone so sought after. With a mixed brilliant cut designed to maximize light reflection, it shines with an internal brilliance that brings its medium intense green color to life. Rated as eye clean, the stone appears flawless to the naked eye, which enhances its desirability. An excellent polish indicates that there are no surface imperfections, allowing for an unimpeded luster that further accentuates the gemstone's quality. This particular gem hails from Nigeria, one of the known sources for high-quality Paraiba tourmalines outside of Brazil.
Paraiba tourmalines are primarily used in fine jewelry due to their beauty and unique color. They are often set in rings, pendants, and earrings where their exquisite hue can be showcased.
Imagine a strikingly designed pair of earrings featuring these vibrantly green Paraiba tourmalines as their centerpiece. Each earring is intricately crafted from premium 18K white gold, lending a sophisticated and modern appearance that beautifully complements the electric green of the tourmalines. Above each tourmaline dangles a cascading arrangement of smaller diamonds, intricately set to provide a glittering contrast to the smooth brilliance of the Paraiba stones.
The craftsmanship of the earrings showcases meticulous attention to detail, with each diamond meticulously chosen for its cut, clarity, and ability to enhance the overall design. Varied settings, such as pavé or bezel, add texture and interest. The assembly ensures that the tourmalines are securely held while still allowing maximum exposure to light, enhancing their neon hue and ensuring they are the focal point of the design.
The earrings feature a secure and comfortable closure system, such as a screw-back or a latch back, ensuring that these valuable pieces remain safely in place while being worn. Overall, the aesthetic appeal of the earrings lies in the harmonious balance between the extraordinary Paraiba tourmalines, the sparkling diamonds, and the lustrous white gold—resulting in a truly luxurious and enchanting piece of fine jewelry. The wearer of such earrings would undoubtedly draw the eye and elicit admiration for the remarkable beauty and unmistakable craftsmanship that these earrings display.
