Rings With Tourmaline Gemstones
Tourmaline is a group of minerals that encompasses gems in virtually all colors of the rainbow. The Sri Lankan's named it 'turamali' - a word that could translate into English as 'stones with mixed colors'. Turamali initially referred to a group of color stones and not just tourmaline. Colorful tourmaline gems have been used as attractive pieces for thousands of years, and the reddish variety also known as rubelite, has in the past been mistaken for ruby. England in the Victorian era made wide use of schorl, the black variety of tourmaline in mourning jewelry. Interestingly it was the mining term for 'unwanted rubble' which was used to name black tourmaline - the rubble was also called schorl.
Stepping into today, tourmaline rings are highly desired objects of style and fashion. The fact that jewelry savvy buyers can never get enough of this colorful gem can be proved by one fact - the steady increase in the price of the gemstone. Climbing gold prices have been responsible for the rise in prices of gems like tourmaline, aquamarine and the more exotic garnets. As wearing fine gold rings became more of an expensive luxury, reputed jewelry houses turned to tanzanite, aqumarine and tourmaline rings. This in a way helped weigh price tags down by exempting the very high priced gems like ruby, sapphire and emerald. Kai Silver the world's leading online custom jewelry provider saw a handsome spurt in the demand for pink and green tourmaline rings. Both men and women turned to tourmaline gemstone rings, and quality sterling silver tourmaline rings were no longer out of style.
The overall demand for colored gemstones has never been so robust as seen in the past few years. With bridal jewelry becoming increasingly bored of the whiteness of glittering diamonds, young couples have begun scouting bridal rings with colorful gems - tourmaline gained in demand once again. Colors can reflect moods, they can also positively alter moods. Pink is the color of joy and happiness, green is always associated with life, growth and freshness. It is therefore no suprise that, pink and green tourmaline rings are keeping most highend jewelry providers busy. A few decades ago, pink tourmaline walked into the birthstone charts - the gem was designated as the October birthstone along with opal. Men wanted tourmaline birthstone rings too but, were a bit cautious about pinks - they embraced green tourmaline. It was not long before 'tourmaline' was hailed as the October birthstone, irrespective of it's color.
Armed with a hardness of 7.5-8 (out of 10), tourmaline is all geared to take care of itself. You need not be overly concerned about the stone in your tourmaline ring getting damaged through normal wear and tear. While you could expect ladies to fuss and pander their jewelry, expect nothing of the sort from men. But with this rather impressive hardness rating, both men and ladies can safely and confidently wear their tourmaline gemstone ring - and gracefully accept the admiration showered on the jewel by friends and family.
