This stylish ring boasts rare Paraiba tourmaline stones weighing 3.08 carats with 21.62 total carats of white diamonds. Evoking the popular evil eye motif — an ancient protective talisman — this ring's highly unique sculptural blue titanium setting features a brilliant blue Paraiba "iris" and diamond "pupil" at its center. Dozens of drop-shaped briolette diamonds lend texture and movement while four prongs set with white diamonds and Paraibas reach toward the center stones.
Characterized by their "electric" blue color, Paraiba tourmalines were only first discovered in South America during the 1980s. Paraibas owe their spectacular neon-bright coloring to the presence of copper and have only been found in the copper-rich mines of Brazil, Nigeria and Mozambique.
