The green tourmaline from Kenya weighs 3.27 carats, and the golden tourmaline, also from Kenya, is 1.90 carats. You can read more about the inspiration behind the design in this post from August. As I said in that post and earlier ones about ANZA Gems, Monica personally sources gemstone rough in Africa, and brings it back to the U.S. where it is cut and incorporated into jewelry designs. It’s a completely transparent journey, which is captured in this ANZA collage that shows the rough, the cut gems, and the finished ring.
As if that’s not fabulous enough, Monica uses 10% of the proceeds from sales of ANZA jewelry to support schools in the gem-mining communities. You can do some good while you do some shopping! To inquire about my one-of-a-kind design, contact ANZA directly.
Tourmaline is also found in a deeper shade of green, like the 6.5-carat stone I used for this ring in my own collection.
This is one of my older designs, and I only have this one version of it left in size 6. It’s normally $4,000, but if you email me at info at wendybrandes dot com and tell me how much you love it, I might be persuaded to give you a special price. Try me!
Finally, I have a pair of tourmaline stud earrings.
Don’t they look delicious? I have two pairs. Get one for you and one for a friend!
