"Alas my love, ye do me wrong, / to cast me off discourteously: And I have loved you so long / Delighting in your companie. Greensleeves was all my ioy, / Greensleeves was my delight: Greensleeves was my heart of gold, / And who but Ladie Greensleeves." Who doesn't know the melody to this English song that sings of heartfelt desperate love for a lady with green sleeves? A perfect piece of jewelry for a lady who loves green, we can present to you here. A natural bottle green tourmaline weighing about 2.30 carats is octagonally cut chosen as the focal point of the vintage ring. A frame of a total of twelve fine brilliant-cut diamonds in brilliant white surrounds the precious center stone like a sparkling frame. A total of 0.60 carats of brilliant-cut diamonds have been processed. The ring band is forged of yellow gold, while the ring face is made of platinum - thus, the festive sparkle of its gemstone setting is supported in the best possible way. The ring was probably made in Germany in the 1960s and found its way to us here in Berlin. An unusually beautiful ring in very good quality, which comes with a detailed appraisal.

Tourmaline is a gemstone that is able to immediately captivate almost all gemstone lovers with its diverse play of colors. From blue, to yellow, pink and green, almost all colors occur and its wonderful radiance makes the tourmaline one of the most valued gemstones since time immemorial. 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.
