I work with great stone dealers so color and cut can be a rainbow for gemstones. I am respectful of the war-torn areas of conflict and source elsewhere. Finding the right natural coral and turquoise is a real exploration of the planet, consider it special. I constantly search for conch pearls, a precious gem of the deep sea. For those who wish to forego the conflict, there are alternatives, particularly now that man-made diamonds are accessible.

Tourmaline yes but not all red Tourmalines deserve to be called Rubellite. This vivid 2.49 CT triad illustrates how special a red Tourmaline can be.
