$1,185.00 USD

This watermelon tourmaline set in a partial 22K yellow gold bezel with 14K prongs has a vibrant pink center and a slim green line with a pocket of deep indigo. The post-consumer diamond is a whopping 0.35 Ct., I color, SI2 clarity sparkler in an 18K yellow gold tapered bezel. It measures 4.3mm.

I had some questions about that designation of ‘post-consumer’ yesterday, so let me explain. Y’all know that I hunt for treasures in antique stores, but I also hit the occasional pawn shop, searching for great quality gems and worn-out gold to recycle. This particular diamond was in an Art Nouveau white gold engagement ring whose engraving was too far gone for repair, its filigree broken and missing.

To use these kinds of diamonds is the ultimate for me - neither lab-grown nor freshly earth-mined, gems which have already had a life as something else.

18” total length on Sterling cable chain, 14K yellow gold hand-forged clasp and hook closure. All 14K connectors.
