Item details

Natural untreated Rubellite Tourmaline is a dark red/pink color that is often mistaken for Ruby, and since it is considered a Rare Gemstone is actually more expensive than Ruby. Uncut and untreated it can sell for anywhere between $50-750 per carat depending on the quality. This is AA+ quality and I am selling it for only $20/carat because it is still mostly rough material. It has been polished on one side to show off the amazing color and even has some shimmer/glitter in the stone that some Tourmaline displays.

Red Tourmaline is often thought to bring passion, courage and love and is a great birthstone alternative for any Autumn birthday (traditionally mid-October to mid-November).

TOTAL WEIGHT: 10.5 carat

NUMBER OF STONES: 6

FAQs

Each piece is created with a fascinating process called electroforming in which particles of fine silver grow in an almost organic way creating a finished piece that follows the unique contours of the stones. I begin with a piece of sterling silver wire then set the stones and sand them to the perfect shape. Then they're painted with a conducive paint that indicates where the metal will eventually grow. For the final electroforming and plating, I send my pieces to an Electroforming House in LA. This new partnership has allowed me to still hand-craft every aspect of the design while now being able to offer them in silver. After the solid base is finished they are then plated in Rhodium (for a silver finish) Rose or Yellow Gold.

Q: I want something really special since I'll be proposing soon. Do you make custom engagement rings or bridal jewelry? A: YES! I absolutely love making engagement rings. Contact me or go to my website www.thefoxandstone.com for more information on my custom work.

Because electroforming isn't an exact science, I consider a 1/4 size variance as an acceptable range. If your ring is more than 1/4 size off the size you ordered, I will re-set/resize it for free. If it is within 1/4 size of the size ordered, but you ordered the wrong size, it will have to be entirely remade and will cost 50% of the original retail price (excluding all discounts). If you have any questions about this please let me know!

I am available Monday through Friday most of the day to answer messages, but I do not work on the weekends in order to spend time with my husband and three toddlers. Please be aware that if you message me on Friday evening through Sunday evening, I may not answer you until I am in the office Monday morning.

Q: I would like my order gift wrapped. Do you charge extra for this? A: No. All of my pieces come exclusively wrapped in a bed of green moss, nestled in a beautiful recycled looking brown box and wrapped with twine or yarn. Q: Can I have a personalized note added if I'm shipping to someone for a gift? A: Yes, I will happily hand-write a note for you! Just let me know in the Notes to Seller what you want to say.

My current "make time" is 6-8 weeks but we are actively working to reduce that. If you need it sooner than that I do offer an expedited processing option for an added fee of 20% of the item's cost.

Because each item in this shop is a custom made-to-order piece I am unable to offer a refund or exchange simply for buyers remorse. If there is a problem with your piece, I will gladly work with you to correct the issue.
