A phenomenally rare electric blue Paraiba tourmaline weighing 0.65 carats sparkles in this gorgeous ring, certified by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) as Brazilian in origin. Paraiba tourmalines are among the rarest and most exciting gemstones in the world, and this stone exhibits the signature neon blue-green color of only the finest specimens.
First discovered in 1989, Paraiba tourmalines are only found in three regions of the world: Brazil, Nigeria and Mozambique. For every 10,000 diamonds mined, only one Paraiba tourmaline is discovered, making these stones even rarer than diamonds. These incredible gems owe their spectacular coloring to the presence of copper in the stone. Due to the specific mineral composition of the mines, nature has created a gemstone that truly stands out among all others. Dozens of white diamonds accent this incredible tourmaline, all mounted in a classic 18K white gold setting.Download the CertificationClick here to view a video of this item.
