I hope you understand how much jewelry I look at before deciding what’s worth showing you. Some of it I pin, some of it I post to Tumblr, but most of it I just turn down. Which means that anything I put on here is something I think is special – but some things, at the risk of sounding silly, are especially special.
For example: this antique green tourmaline filigree ring.
This 18k white gold ring was made in 1880. That beautiful center stone is a natural green tourmaline. Isn’t it beautiful? I think that shade of green is stunning.
The other most noticeable feature of this antique green tourmaline ring is, of course, the filigree. Look how ornate that is – I can’t help but wonder how much time the jeweler spent designing each whirl and tendril before beginning to forge the final piece. It’s so intricate and flows so perfectly.
