The Jewels

PARAIBA TOURMALINE

PARAIBA TOURMALINE

Introduced to Hong Kong in 2005

Discovered in Brazil in 1989

The spectacular neon turquoise-blue Paraiba tourmaline is currently the hottest collector’s  gemstone, prices steeper than fine diamonds due to its rarity.

Discovered in the 1980’s in the Brazilian state of Paraiba this electric blue had never before been seen  in gemstones. Once cut and faceted it unleashes an  intense fire, glowing in the dark due to high levels of copper content. Though extremely coveted, only a  number of collectors in the world are in possession  of this unmatched precious stone.

 

RUBELLITE TOURMALINE

RUBELLITE TOURMALINE

Introduced to Hong Kong in 1995

The hot pink rubellite tourmaline is one of the most prized colours of tourmaline. Feminine and fabulous, finding a matching pair for earrings is always a  challenge, as no two are ever exactly the same due  to their complex chemical and crystalline structure.  They are the perfect gemstone for the accomplished  woman.

Rubellites take their name from the Latin ‘rubellus’ meaning red. Many gemstones change their colour  depending on the light source but true rubellites do  not, their red sparkle is just as strong in either  daylight or artificial light.

 

BI- COLOUR TOURMALINE

BI- COLOUR TOURMALINE

Introduced to Hong Kong in 1995

True treasures of nature, watermelon and bi- colour tourmalines are always fascinating to  the eye as they may combine two or three  different colours such as hot pink and blue,  or a gradient of green and purple. This colour change happens naturally over millions of  years as different colour elements enter the  crystal structure of the gemstone.

It is rare to find a crystal of just one colour, as these gemstones display a marked dichroism, which means that the colour will seem more or les intense depending on the  angle is it looked at. To display tourmalines  at their best requires an expert cutter.

 

MANDARIN GARNET

MANDARIN GARNET

Introduced to Hong Kong in 2007

Discovered in Namibia in 1991

The fiery orange garnet known to many by the term ‘Mandarin Garnet’ is a feast for the  eyes. Discovered in 1991 in a remote part of  Namibia, it is an ideal colour for all occasions  with a relatively high refractive index, which  gives it unusually strong brilliance. Even in  unfavourable light conditions, small,

brilliant-cut specimens still sparkle with great vivacity. Only a confident woman would be able to a Mandarin Orange garnet  with presence, as showing this colour  indicates true confidence, a one definitely for individualists.
