A phenomenal and 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. Dozens of white diamonds accent this incredible tourmaline, all mounted in a classic 18K white gold setting. Paraiba tourmalines are among the most exciting gemstones in the world, and this stone exhibits the signature neon blue-green color of only the finest specimens. Only first discovered in Brazil in 1989, Paraiba tourmalines are now found in two places in the world: Brazil and Africa. These stones 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 stands out among all others, and Paraibas are considered even rarer than diamonds.Download the CertificationClick here to view a video of this item.
