October is a month that has two choices of birthstone: opal or tourmaline. Tourmaline is the preferred choice of jewelers as it is available in a wide range of colors. These gemstones can be used to create jewelry that is suited to everyone’s taste.
A piece of jewelry that contains a tourmaline gemstone is an ideal birthday gift. If you are buying for a special birthday then you may consider having the tourmaline set in a piece of platinum jewelry. This can be made even more personal by choosing a tourmaline gemstone in the person’s favorite color.
Tourmaline displays several colors in the same gemstone and is known as the “peace stone,” believed to dispel fear and make its wearer calm. Interesting fact: Tourmaline becomes charged with static electricity and was used by Benjamin Franklin in his studies of electricity.
Gold is another popular choice to complement a tourmaline gemstone and having the stone set in 14K or 18K gold can create an attractive piece of jewelry. By choosing a stone that contains a variety of colors, the owner will have a very unique piece of jewelry.
Tourmaline has long been a popular choice of gemstone and so there are many pieces of vintage tourmaline jewelry available. These pieces range from rings to necklaces and can be a real asset to your jewelry collection.
Tourmaline gemstones offer a number of possibilities in terms of the jewelry that can be created. You can choose from stones that contain just one color or those that contain two or three.
