Cut of the stone
Firstly we talked about the cut of the stone. Now finding a good quality bright green tourmaline with this cut is not impossible to find but can be tricky so we decided that custom cutting was the way forward. We custom cut the green tourmaline from a larger cushion stone to create the look. We combined the chequer board facetted cut on top but with a more square proportioned shape rather than oval.
The lapidaries squared up the proportions and then facetted the top of the stone. This creating a square cushion shape with a facetted top! Donna felt a straight sided square stone would be a little harsh so decided that she would like to have the stone with softened corners. The initial stone was 1.72cts and ended up at 1.05ct. After being cut gemstone it is difficult. We searched for a green tourmaline of the right colour that could be cut to shape. The twist ring is simple in style holds the tourmaline for a modern design.
Silver is always in fashion
Because silver jewellery is trendy and simple it has been always in fashion. Sterling silver can be enjoyed a life time. It being a precious metal it is more affordable than gold and platinum. Always keep your ornaments separately, preferably in a cloth pouch or jewellery box in order to prevent scratching and tarnishing. When silver reacts with sulfur or hydrogen sulfide in the ambient air its normal for silver to tarnish.
To make silver ornaments last a life time you must have to follow simple steps. It can be easily removed by polishing with cloth or solutions specifically formulated for silver cleaning, which can be found in any hardware store. Always avoid exposing it to household chemicals, such as bleach or chlorinated water.
