Diving Dolphins Port & Starboard Pink & Green Maine Tourmaline Ring

Style #: G4489
Diving Dolphins
Port & Starboard

These are nice. These are rare. These are precious. Diving dolphins, yes. Pink and green Maine tourmaline, yes. Gem size 5mm. I wish we had a hundred sets. Alas, we have just ten sets made up in this ring design. Can we make more? Not likely. We are at the end of this style, having used up all the colors of Maine tourmaline in this size.

If you’re a sailor, don’t miss out. This is a double symbol of two lives living together and pink and green tourmaline representing port and starboard channel markers. The tourmaline sets are similar…the tourmaline colors vary slightly. Choose your favorite in this email.

You’re Dressed For the Occasion

You’ve known the captain for years. He’s neat, trim, and super organized. He can be the life of the party and funny too. You’ve been invited on his boat with a few of your friends for an afternoon cruise. The decks are teak; the hardware is polished brass. His crew is fastidious, and his summer cook is a legend. You’ve dressed for the occasion, white blouse, pastel blue scarf, sharp shorts and boat shoes. You’re ready. You look like you belong. Then, of course, there’s the finishing touch – your Private Yacht, Port and Starboard Diving Dolphins ring. A touch of color, appropriately placed helped by this mnemonic device that says, “After the party there is no port left,” which means pink is always worn on the left side.

Why We Love This Ring

A customer suggested pink and green gems for port and starboard. We made a pair of earrings for that customer. They looked so good, we made a pair for us. We tagged them, put them into the showcase, and sold them the same day to another sailor. We made more and they quickly became a best-seller among our yachting crowd. It’s now two decades later, and we have found homes for hundreds of pairs of these channel marker earrings. They speak a subtle language, suggesting you know your way forward, aft, port, and starboard. Yachtsmen respect that. And yes, the Maine tourmaline earrings are almost gone too.

More Recent Edition

The Diving Dolphins ring is a more recent edition of the Port and Starboard concept. We’re starting with 10 rings, all look awesome. We don’t expect them to last long. If you’re into boating, yachting, or any sport on the ocean, you should have this ring. After these 10 sell, can we make more? Probably never. Fine gems present all jewelers with this challenge of limited production. It’s a great ring, a great look – looks awesome on the hand.

We can’t emphasize enough that these are ½ century old gems, found in the 1972 tourmaline discovery on Plumbago Mountain in Newry, Maine. If you want this ring call. Don’t wait.

Maine Tourmaline, A Maine Story
An American Gem

First discovered in 1820 and in subsequent finds over the years, these early discoveries put Maine on the world map as a source for high-quality tourmaline gems. A major discovery in 1972 on Plumbago Mountain in Newry, Maine established Maine as a significant world source of fine tourmaline gemstones.

Cross recognized the historical significance of this find and began working closely with the miners of these magnificent gems. The close partnership continues today with the ongoing discoveries in Maine’s western mountains.

100% Natural

We go to Maine’s gem mines. We know the miners. We know the gem cutters. We guarantee our tourmaline to be from Maine and is 100% natural. Cross maintains the largest collection of fine Maine tourmaline jewelry in the world.

Window of Opportunity

Fifty years have passed since the major 1972 tourmaline find in Newry, Maine where they found 3.5 million carats of tourmaline crystals. Over the years we bought more than we sold knowing that gem finds don’t last forever. There are now colors, sizes, and shapes that are extremely rare and, in some cases, no longer available. If you see something you love it’s best to act quickly. There’s no guarantee another gem like this one exists.

Case in point: In 2007 there was a find of tourmaline in Newry, Maine called Eureka Blue. People loved the color. The gems sold quickly, but the find was small and the mining only lasted a few seasons. Within three years of the discovery, all the large Eureka gems had sold. We still get calls from people who are now ready to buy. What they want, however, simply no longer exists from that find in 2007.

Gem finds are rare, especially in North America. Maine tourmaline is a piece of Maine and American history, it’s a connection to a place we all love, an exquisite creation of nature. Today, there is a rare opportunity to own a bit of Maine/American pride and heritage, and history in choosing a piece of Maine tourmaline jewelry.
