Ruby and Paraiba Tourmaline Drop Earrings
Elegant 18-carat yellow gold drop earrings, set with rubies and Paraiba tourmalines.
A striking colour combination, with the classic electric blue of the Paraiba tourmaline paired with deep pink rubies. The rich 18ct yellow gold is finished with Julia's signature beaten texture, which adds a richness and warmth to the gold - a beautiful contract to the neon glow of the stones.
The Paraiba Tourmaline was discovered in the Brazilian state of Paraiba in the 1980s, and is among one of the world's most prized gemstones, as well as being the signature stone of Julia's work. The Brazilian mines have since been exhausted, making the Paraiba Tourmaline ever-harder to source.
These Paraiba tourmalines are a fine example of the most sought-after colour of Brazilian Paraiba, the iridescent 'swimming-pool' blue.
A modern yet timeless piece.
