Pink Tourmaline, Mother of Pearl, & Quartz Triplet Earrings with Diamond Halo in Yellow Gold
Pink Tourmaline, Mother of Pearl, & Quartz Triplet Earrings with Diamo
It takes three different gemstones layered on top of one another to achieve the unique beauty and look of these earrings. Each gem is a triplet with three distinct layers. The bottom layer is white mother of pearl giving the iridescent play of color. The middle layer is a thin pink tourmaline, producing the violet purple color. The top layer is colorless quartz adding a three dimensional and faceted appearance.
For centuries tourmalines have adorned the jewels of royalty. The Empress Dowager Tz'u Hsi, the last empress of China, valued the rich pink colors above all other gemstones. The people of ancient Ceylon called tourmaline "turmali," the Sinhalese word for "more colors." Perhaps this is why ancient mystics believed tourmaline could encourage artistic intuition.
