This ring of the years around 1960 impresses with its design and luxurious materials. In its center shines a round-faced tourmaline of bottle-green colour. The stone is particularly clear and has a beautiful strong hue, for which tourmalines have been valued since ancient times. Tourmaline is a gemstone that shows a diverse play of colours. From blue to yellow, pink and green, almost all colours occur. Its wonderful radiance has made tourmaline one of the most highly valued gemstones since ancient times. The name tourmaline comes from the Sinhalese word thuramali ("තුරමලි") or thoramalli ("තෝරමල්ලි"), which was commonly used for colourful gemstones found in Sri Lanka. Larger quantities of tourmaline were exported from Sri Lanka to Europe only since the middle of the 18th century. In our ring, a fanciful flower-shaped setting of 14-karat yellow gold holds the faceted gemstone, giving the ring a rich and saturated play of colour. Eight diamonds in rhodium-plated settings further highlight the radiance of the coloured stone and add sparkling white accents to this immensely decorative piece of jewellery.

The name tourmaline comes from the Sinhalese word thuramali (තුරමලි) or thoramalli (තෝරමල්ලි), which was commonly used for colorful gemstones found in Sri Lanka. The name was first recorded in writing for Europe in 1707, or in 1711 under the name Chrysolithus Turmale. Larger quantities were exported from Sri Lanka to Europe only since the middle of the 18th century. At that time the Dutch East India Company had practically a trade monopoly for tourmalines.
