Tourmaline comes in such a dazzling range of colors that its name literally means “mixed gems.” While the ‘chameleon’ gem comes in a wealth of colors, pink is the most sought after because it’s the purest pink in the gemstone world. For a gem colored in such rosy perfection it rivals the hue of the most precious pink diamond.
Valuable in its own right, tourmaline varieties are among the rarest and most expensive gemstones in the world. According to Gemstone Advisor, “High quality Paraiba tourmaline will sell for around $12,000 per carat.”
Pink tourmaline is at its most enchanting as butterfly earrings with teardrop cut pink tourmaline wings etched in white diamonds and set in warm and inviting rose gold. Surprise her with her own fanciful butterflies. We assure you, she will be tickled pink.
