18k rose-gold set with 2 carats natural color rubellite tourmaline.
Rubellite is the raspberry pink variety of tourmaline, a
group of closely related gemstones in almost every color.
An ancient Egyptian legend says that tourmaline traveled
from the heart of the Earth up towards the Sun along a
brilliantly colored rainbow and collected all the colors
along its way. Rubellite is thought to be one of the fairest of
all—The Empress Dowager Tz'u Hsi, last Empress of
China, loved pink tourmaline and went to rest eternally on
a carved tourmaline pillow. We think the Empress would be
equally besotted with our rubellite and rose gold Droplet
Made and finished entirely by hand, stones custom cut.
