Ivy Grows Forever

Green Maine Tourmaline Ring

 

Flowing ivy,
vining its way up to center.
A shimmering dew drop
in the morning light
Sunshine after the storm.
Rainbows on every leaf.

 

More Information
About the Ivy Ring

There were rings made during the Victorian Era; sweet, delicate, with lovely detailing and exquisite craftsmanship. Rings so loved, they were worn by several generations. Few of those rings have survived through to today. We found one particularly nice classic ivy ring and recreated it for modern women’s more active lifestyles. We’ve set them with a 1/10 carat Royal Ideal-Cut diamond, with fancy color-enhanced diamonds, sapphires, rubies and with our own Maine tourmaline. All within a six-petal buttercup setting and rich, deeply engraved twining ivy designs.

This ring is made for any finger size in your choice of 14K yellow gold.

Questions we will be asked:

  • “Can you set my diamond into this design?” No.
  • “Can you set a bigger diamond into this ring?” No. It’s perfect just the way it is, and for the rich texture and bright color and sparkle, it is an amazing value.

 

A Love Affair With
Fine Wrought Iron Gates

My brother and I use to discuss our fascination with fine wrought iron work. Our love of the light and dark, shadow and light, swirls, curls, knew no end. We admired old Victorian furniture, deep carving, acanthus leaf detailing. Years later I had fences built. Bought antique fence section from New Orleans for the end of my driveway. And bought a wrought iron fence from Egypt to surround part of a garden on my highest point of land that I called The Sky Garden, a place to watch summer clouds drift by.

Craig and I discussed how we had no living relatives who loved scroll work detail like we did. We were puzzled by how we were both so deeply moved by great wrought iron work and how we could stand for hours outside of a great estate admiring the wrought iron fence between the entrance pillars.

 

The Sweetest, Cutest,
Little Gemstone Ring Ever Made

This is a long introduction to one of the smallest, most delicately detailed rings we make. It is a ring I admire like fine wrought iron gate work. If I owned this ring and wore it, I would log hundreds of hours of gazing at the scroll work and the center chamber within which a brilliant gem is set and suspended.

One-hundred and one-hundred-fifty years ago most ladies and many men’s rings were set within a highly polished, reflective, six-petal flower-like center like this ring. There is so much exquisite gold sculpting to be seen in the design detailing we’re including one of our professional ten-power jeweler’s magnifiers so that you can study your new ring.

How might this ring be worn, right or left hand? Right hand, ring finger, because you’re one out of the every three-hundred-fifty people who is so deeply moved by the fine wrought iron work and exquisite Victorian detail and would love to have a ring, this grapevine detailing, with you everyday forever. Left hand. Yes, of course, it can be an engagement ring.

The gem may be small, 3mm, it has a big presence though within its reflective flower. I know we’ll be asked, “Can you make it with a larger gem?” Kittens are cute. A tiger is just too big to be a good house pet. The sweetest little gemstone ring ever made. It’s Goldilocks-perfect exactly as it is made. Change the gem size, bigger or smaller, and it becomes less of a ring. Trust me, it’s perfect.

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.
