This Bead is a true collectors piece. Made from a single Rubellite Tourmaline weighing well over 10 carats before drilling, this has since been cored with a full sterling silver core and hallmarked with both 925 and DPM (our own registered hallmark). The colour is simply devine and it would make a centre piece on any bangle or bracelet.
"Whilst coloured gemstones in good qualities should as a rule be as free of inclusions as possible, they are looked upon with some favour in the case of the rubellite: indeed it is inclusions that render this stone really interesting from the point of view of the connoisseur."
"The colour of this gemstone is pure seduction. Its components are red, shocking pink and violet – the typical colour realm of desire and joie de vivre. In the fascinating world of the gemstones, there is hardly any other stone which has such a persuasive erotic aura. The colour range of the rubellite comprises tender shocking pink as well as ambivalent violet. It takes these two components to get the best out of that seductive red. Fortunately, Nature has created the rubellite in many colour nuances, so that every woman can select the right rubellite for her type. All she has to do is find it – and that may not be quite so easy. And certainly not if she happens to be looking for two or more stones of the same colour. However, a woman who is truly aware of the extravagance and beauty of the rubellite will derive a great deal of pleasure from it."
