Paraiba Tourmalines

Paraiba Tourmalines

 

Our newest one-of-a-kind pieces feature paraiba tourmalines, which are rare, blue-green gemstones that were first discovered in Brazil in 1989. These designs took weeks to make and much focus from Aaron and Ashley, our jewelers who did most of the making. It was a collaborative effort and was fun to watch how well the two work together. Our jewelers typically create a piece from start to finish alone – this project involved much of the shop setting diamonds and hand-fabricating the findings.

This set of earrings and necklace made their debut at Marissa Collections in Naples, Florida today. Some process shots and the finished designs below!
