Rubellite & 18ct Yellow Gold Ring
An FJ signature statement ring featuring a luxurious cushion cut rubellite, the rich velvety pink of this stone is elevated by a tailored and generous 18ct yellow gold round trim collet with raised split shoulder detail for a distinguished look. Handcrafted in England.
Rubellite means ‘red’ in Latin and its intense pink hue is the most desired and valuable of all tourmaline. Tourmaline has been known since antiquity in the Mediterranean region; the Dutch imported it in 1703 from Sri Lanka to Western and Central Europe.
They gave the new gems a Sinhalese name ‘Turamali’ which is thought to mean ‘stone with mixed colours’. Indeed, tourmaline, is the only gemstone to come in every colour.
