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

It’s my favourite green stone and I’m sorry, for my money, it beats emerald into a cocked hat. It’s bright green, extremely brilliant and unlike emerald, it’s not routinely treated. Tsavorite garnet, […]

This is one of my favourite stones, and the most valuable of the red garnets. Rhodolite garnet has a colour range between pinkish red and deep raspberry pink and it’s not just a colour call that distinguishes it from other red garnets; it is to do with its composition. It’s a mixture of pyrope and […]
