Raindrop Tourmaline Ring

Gold & Stone Ring

Created by Nancy Troske
A statement ring in glorious 22k gold granulation. Here is ancient granulation re-interpreted for the modern world: raindrops of gold with glints of white sparkly diamonds and richly colored 6mm round tourmaline. Each ring has two tiny white diamonds mixed in with the gold granules. Granule patterning will vary from ring to ring.

Granulation is an ancient technique, mastered by relatively few goldsmiths. It takes years of practice using the purest of metals. Each tiny granule is made by hand, and making enough for one piece of jewelry can take weeks. Each granule is placed one by one using a tiny brush. The piece is heated almost to the melting point. At that precise moment, the granules fuse and become one with the item being granulated. The technique is evident in museum collections featuring ancient jewelry.

Available in whole and half sizes from 5.5 to 12. Tourmaline is available in your choice of five colors. Stamped with artist's hallmark.
