On Island Green Maine Tourmaline & Blue Sapphire Ring

Item #: X4269

On Island

It was August of a recent year, I was crossing the Veteran’s Memorial Bridge in Portland. The car ahead of me, out of state plates, was headed south. The license plate said “ON ISLAND”. It said so much. It told a story of a significant part of their lives. I don’t know them. I remember the state but I won’t tell to protect the identity of this family of islanders. I’m presuming “summer islanders”, July through August, returning home at the end of August. If you’re an island person, you know. You know, you know, and it’s almost your secret because non-islanders most likely will never know.

This ring is the only one like it in the world, “sounds a little familiar”. Big green Maine tourmaline center suggests where “on island” might be. Two blue sapphires on either side are world sapphires – it’s a big ocean. The ring “On Island” is our original “New Castle” design – the best ring design in the world. Simple, low profile, smooth, comfy, easy to wear, solid, safe, secure. In the center, a 5mm green Maine Tourmaline – this is the treasure gem and the problem gem. We can only make a limited number of these rings in any year, governed by this choice rare Maine gem. Our cutter is able to cut just a few each year. We need this choice size for numerous designs. To have made three of these rings in our first production run is rare. Most likely in the future we will make just one at a time because the 5mm green Maine Tourmaline is hard to come by. On the east-west sides we have set a matched pair of brilliant blue sapphires.

If the classic preppy color combination wasn’t obvious enough, the big forest green Maine Tourmaline represents the island and the two blue sapphires are the sea surrounding. Our “On Island” ring is smart, sharp looking, and is your silent reminder of a place you love.

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.
