Paraiba (tourmaline) of the Caribbean

Paraiba (tourmaline) of the Caribbean

Acinom originally posted her enchanting Paraiba tourmaline ring on the Show Me the Bling forum at PriceScope.  Taking inspiration from the Caribbean Sea, Acinom set out to create a ring that would transport her to the crystalline waves at a glance, and I’d say she achieved that and more!

I love this ring! I am completely fascinated by the oceans and the colors of the life in the depths. This Paraiba tourmaline evokes a salty air and the din of the crashing waves. The blue/green hue lights up the room, it sparkles so fiercely. It’s amazing that the color looks so different in different lighting. This is a marvelous piece and it did my heart good to revisit it!
