The sensational color of this 3.62-carat Brazilian Paraiba tourmaline hypnotizes in this platinum ring. Paraiba tourmalines are among the rarest and most exciting gemstones in the world, and this stone exhibits the signature vivid blue-green color of only the finest specimens.
First discovered in 1989, Paraiba tourmalines are found in only three regions of the world: Brazil, Nigeria and Mozambique. For every 10,000 diamonds mined, only one Paraiba tourmaline is discovered, making these incredible gems even rarer than diamonds. 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. This elegant, cushion-cut jewel is surrounded by 84 white diamonds totaling 0.64 carat. Download the GIA CertificationClick here to view a video of this item.
