Green Trees – Silver Flash
Many years ago, a cross customer had been cleaning out the estate of a great aunt. She had many very fine pieces of jewelry. Within her jewelry collection was an old, perfectly preserved, Cartier jewelry catalog. As one jeweler commenting on another jeweler’s designs, the 1925 Cartier catalog represented the finest collection of diamond jewelry designs I’d ever seen. Clean, classic lines, impeccable craftsmanship, ideal relationships of center to sides, grace, harmony, and balance, everything about the designs shown impressed us immensely. The customer gave us the catalog. We studied it closely. What impressed us most were shapes of the accent diamonds. We had never seen these shapes used in jewelry. Sounds like Cross is recommending the 1925 Cartier, we are. They were and are a very fine jewelry store.
Back to our store and the ring which was shown in that nearly 100 year old catalog. The side diamonds are referred to as bullet shaped diamonds. The women in our store have told me we shouldn’t use the word bullet, but it is the name diamond cutters traditionally use for these sparkling shaped gems. Bullet shaped diamonds are not commonly used in contemporary jewelry and represent a rare touch of white brilliance at the side of our oval SparHawk tourmaline center. This ring in all platinum is stunning.
The Most Significant Find of Tourmaline
Anywhere in the World is Happening in Maine
One of Maine’s most famous tourmaline mines laid fallow for nearly 100 years, then a young guy came along with faith and vision, bought the property, and began exploring for gems again, and as they say, “The rest is history”.
We are pleased to report the old gem mine is now producing SparHawk Mint Green Teal Tourmaline – the world’s newest tourmaline find and at the moment the most important tourmaline discovery in the world.
SparHawk Mint Green Teal Tourmaline is a rare color of green, the result of a unique chemistry of the rock in this part of Maine. This chemistry has created the brightest, most brilliant gemmy green tourmaline we’ve ever had the privilege to offer.
Since this new discovery, we’ve created an amazing collection of SparHawk tourmaline jewelry. This is an exciting time in Maine history. We show many of our SparHawk pieces of jewelry online. To see our complete SparHawk tourmaline collection visit our store in Portland, Maine.
