Tourmaline comes in a huge array of colors. In the 16th century, Spanish conquistadors found green tourmaline deposits in Brazil and thought (erroneously) they had discovered an emerald mine. Tiffany & Co's gemologists worked with tourmaline in the 20th century, securing its reputation as an "American" gem. (They're mainly found in Maine and California.) This vintage cocktail ring boasts a massive raspberry-colored tourmaline - approximately 17.2ct - set in an understated yellow gold mounting.
