Think Pink!

by Julia Aufenast April 12, 2011 1 min read

I love it when people send me photographs of the beautiful things they have made from the stones they have bought from me.  Stones always look incomparably better when set, and their natural beauty properly framed.  This ring is a design by Trina Allen of TLA Designs; an 8mm pink tourmaline in a soft apricot shade, bezel set in sterling silver with a lovely hammered band.  Lovely clean, elegant lines which set off the warm pink of the stone beautifully, and you know, the older I get, the more I like pink.  It’s happy and uplifting and it makes you smile, so chuck out that basic black; spring is here, the blossom is blooming and it’s pink all over!

You can visit Trina’s shop here:  http://www.etsy.com/shop/tladesigns and you can find more tourmaline in my shop at www.joopygems.com

Before I started my journey into gems, blue topaz to me meant swiss blue; bright, vivid cornflower blue. I’m not really […]

Sweet & Juicy Watermelon Tourmaline

by Julia Aufenast May 22, 2019 2 min read

  Watermelon tourmalines classically mimic the fruit, with their juicy fruit and rind; bright pink in the middle, green on the outside. However, they come in so many different colours, representing the full spectrum of tourmaline’s impressive colour range. In fact tourmaline’s original name was ‘turamali’ which means ‘mixed colours’. It’s quite simply one of […]
