This is a head-turner necklace. The colors are deep, vibrant green.
The tourmaline that is in between each sterling disc on the necklace are called "chrome" tourmaline, and are of the highest quality with consistent coloring, shape, and size.
They are a deep, clear emerald green.
Chrome tourmaline is a rather special member of the tourmaline group. Found only in east Africa, it is usually found mainly in small sizes. But what it lacks in size it makes up for in color with the richest, intense green in the gemstone world.
Chrome tourmaline is generally quite rare. The smaller stones maintain the vivid, livelier color.
The chrome tourmaline in this necklace is vibrant and amazing.
The necklace features seven lampwork beads each of which are characterized by a candy-stripe pattern in fresh and sparkling shades of green.
These are separated by an array of sterling balls and discs alternating with magnificent green tourmaline. This arrangement continues up the length of each side.
A sterling extender chain and lobster-claw clasp make the necklace easily adjustable and comfortable.
The sterling leverback earrings feature a single piece of can shaped tourmaline paired with tiny sterling beads, making them simple, elegant, and the perfect complement to the necklace. The green matches wonderfully.
Funky and chunky with a touch of colorful elegance thrown in, this is a statement piece that will work with any number of outfits and will be stand out beautiful against soft pastels, beige, peach and pearl or ecru colored tops or dresses.
It looks really amazing on the neck. It has great weight and balance.
