Edwardian Multi-Color Tourmaline Bracelet in Platinum

The Ancient Egyptians have a legend which says that as tourmaline emerged from the center of the earth, it passed through a rainbow, creating an array of unmatched colors. It’s no wonder this story came about, as tourmaline can be found in nearly every shade, except colorless. Some stones bear more than one color, they’re known as bi-color or tri-color gems and are highly sought after. There is a version nicknamed ‘Watermelon’ that holds green, pink, and white! Tourmaline is adored by gem collectors and scientists alike. When the stone is heated or cooled it becomes electrically charged! This pyroelectric phenomenon means that the stone will show a positive charge at one end, and a negative at the opposite. Pressure, such a squeezing the stone, also brings about this pyroelectricity!

This antique Edwardian platinum and tourmaline bracelet was handcrafted in England, around 1910. It features 21 shades of tourmaline; blues, reds, pinks, greens, and even yellows! Each stone is approximately 5.6 x 3.5 mm, round cabochon cut, and weighs about .9 carats. The bracelet holds a total of 19 carats of tourmaline. This piece is 7 inches in length and weighs 7.2 grams. The depth is 7 mm and it has been acid tested. The clasp contains a safety chain so you’ll never have to worry about this beauty slipping off your well-styled wrist!

This incredible and versatile bracelet will match your every mood and occasion.
