Description

The medium- to dark-pink color and brightness make this round pink tourmaline an appealing choice for jewelry of all types. Use the stone as an accent, in matched pairs for earrings or pair it with stones in complementary colors of reds and purples, such as garnets and amethyst. Pink tourmaline derives its color from its manganese content; our pink tourmaline presents a soft, rosy color. This stone displays veil-like inclusions. Tourmaline is one of the birthstones for October.

Gems known as tourmaline generally come from elbaite, one member of the larger tourmaline family of minerals. Gem tourmaline is hard and usually transparent, with a range of colors coming from trace minerals specific to the source location of each particular gemstone.

Round-cut gemstones are highly popular and the most commonly available. Rio round gemstones are calibrated for size and hand inspected to ensure maximum attractiveness.
