Birthstone Earrings - October Tourmaline
Tourmaline is the technicolored dream coat of gems, there isn’t another stone with a greater range of colors found in nature. Because no two tourmaline’s look alike, they were mistaken for other gems until the 1800’s when they were reclassified as a distinct mineral species. Before that tourmaline’s had been confused for sapphires, emeralds, rubies, and other gems. In fact, the rubies in both the Russian and British crown jewels are now believed to be red tourmaline’s also known as rubellite.
For thousands of years people have worn gemstones to heal, protect and inspire. Tourmaline in particular is said to give trust and patience. We selected organic shapes, rough and tumbled stones and pearls to create completely unique pieces. Just like you! Feel the wisdom of the pearls and the properties of your stone and carry that with you as you move through your day. Wear the earrings as pairs or mix and match with your own earrings to create an asymmetrical look.
