Gorgeous Tourmaline rings utilise one of the ‘birthstones’ of those lucky babes born in the month of October. The ‘two birthstone month’ also includes the magically luminous Opal, prompting some designers to design Tourmaline rings and jewels that combine both gemstones into one creation! Fun! Yet another instance of gemstone jewel designs joining the fashion-forward fun of “mixing things up”. Tourmaline is a rare gemstone, in that it comes in all colours of the rainbow. The birthstone match with October, in part, references the intense bright colours of fall. These colours include the fiery yellow, reds and oranges of the turning leaves; the bright blues of crisp pre-winter skies, the deep blues of the seas, the greens of sea-grasses and all of the other wonderful colours that the season and nature have to offer. Some of the favourite Tourmaline rings at Rocks & Co., include the vivid aqua blues of the AAA Paraiba, the light to deep Emerald greens of Brazilian Tourmaline varieties, and the pop of sugary-sweet pink Tourmaline, like Pink Cuprian Tourmaline. So many gem variety and colour options for your next Tourmaline ring! Price options too. The availability and affordability of larger stones in this gemstone family make Tourmaline PERFECT for the trendy, head-turning cocktail and statement rings.
