The pear-cut 10.07-carat Paraiba tourmaline in this elegant necklace displays the perfect vibrant green-blue hue. The rare gem is certified by the American Gemological Laboratories and the Gemological Institute of America as being Brazilian in origin with no evidence of thermal treatment to enhance its neon coloring. The astonishing rarity of the size and untreated color of this Paraiba cannot be overstated. Well over 99% of Paraiba gems are treated with a slow heat to further enhance their hues. Possessing a magnificent untreated blue hue and an incredible size, this jewel is a singular beauty. The gemstone is complemented by a framing circle of pink and white diamonds totaling approximately 1.50 carats. Set in platinum.
Only first discovered in the late 1980s, the Paraiba tourmaline is one of the world’s rarest and most vibrant gemstones, and they have only been found in the copper-rich mines of Brazil, Nigeria and Mozambique. It is thanks to their rare chemical composition that these gems owe their spectacular coloring and brilliant glow that appears to light the stone from within.
