A Pink Tourmaline & Sapphire ring that defines pretty in pink. Captivated by all who love pink. And, in a striking art deco styling with fishtail/mermaid tail settings.
Your centerpiece is a ravishing top-quality three-carat oval pink tourmaline exhibiting a precisely executed checkerboard cut. A gorgeous hue of deep pink saturates the entire gem. Engaging the eye further, a full carat of brilliant pink sapphires bordering the entire tourmaline that blend together beautifully.
Truly a piece of wearable art with skillfully executed design lines. Take note of the harmony with the checkerboard cut on the tourmaline and the more squared-off look of the wide split prongs. Also called fishtail or mermaid tail settings, these were very popular for their angular Art Deco styling in the 1920s, 30s, and even well into the 1950s. Consequently, some people get a retro feel from this design.
Tourmaline is the birthstone for October along with Opal.
Fun fact: Did you know tourmalines are piezoelectric? They generate an electric charge when squeezed.
