These gorgeous 18k Rose gold plated stud earrings are crafted from sterling silver, and feature rare watermelon tourmaline slices with eye-catching patterns and striations.
A natural wonder found in Brazil, Watermelon Tourmaline is classed as a Bi-Colour semi-precious mineral because of its natural fusion of greens and pinks. This diffusion of colour is due to elements of copper present during the structural formation of the stone.
Tourmaline is highly regarded because of its rarity and range of colours. The most coveted and valuable Tourmalines show a marked translucency whilst maintaining a high pigmentation of colour, as can be seen with this superior range of slices.
Watermelon Tourmaline has to have a specific colour formation to be given its name – the stones must have a green surround and a pink centre in order to be able to be classed as the rare watermelon variety.
Please note that this earring will come with internal imperfections, inclusions and fissures which add to the uniqueness of the product and enhance its organic design - these are not faults, and we believe they make each piece even more special and add to their inherent charm. These tourmaline slices are one of a kind natural pieces, and will include natural textures and characteristics.
