Imagine you are newly engaged. You’ve just received a ring set with a big beautiful gem. Everyone will notice. They can’t help but notice. The world is watching. You are to become a princess and someday you will be Queen.
Following Will and Kate’s engagement in 2010 we studied the ring Prince William gave to Kate Middleton, taking detailed measurements from dozens of photographs. You have to assume the Royal Jeweler chosen by the House of Windsor knows a thing or two about jewelry design. Their jewelers understand balance and harmony while creating important and often large impressive pieces.
The most obvious point of note from our analysis of this royal ring are the fourteen diamonds which surround the center gem. Fourteen is the perfect number to frame, present and display, without taking away or upstaging the purity of color in the center. Jewelers to the royal family understand there is a special magic to the principle of fourteen, especially when the whole world is watching.
Here we have a fine 1.59 carat Sparhawk Maine tourmaline surrounded with fourteen brilliant white diamonds. This is an exquisite piece of jewelry sure to become a treasured family heirloom.
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.
