The History & Significance of the Pink Tourmaline Engagement Ring
Tourmaline is a category of silicate minerals, specifically cyclosilicates, with a diverse and highly variable composition. Tourmaline can be any colour, but it can also be several colours in one crystal. There are 13 variants in all, with pink tourmaline being one of them. Furthermore, tourmalines, according to ancient Egyptian mythology, are stones that emerged from the earth's core after a long journey that led them across a rainbow. This story helps to understand why the tourmaline family is so colourful and diverse. The word "tourmaline" is derived from the Sinhalese word "touramali," which means "mixed-colour stone." This name was originally given to a variety of coloured stones found in Sri Lankan mines. Pink tourmaline is also known as "rubellite," which comes from the Latin word "rubellus," which means "reddish." It's also a play on the word 'ruby,' which has very similar colours. Afghanistan, Brazil, Congo, Kenya, Madagascar, Nepal, Russia, Switzerland, and the United States are the major sources of this semi-precious stone. The most exquisite variations can be found in Mozambique's Shimoyo. Pink tourmaline was once thought to be a sign of immortality in ancient Greece. It is also known as the artist's stone because it encourages imagination. Pink tourmaline is often said to attract love and boost the wearer's femininity. As a result, it is THE ring for women par excellence, as well as THE diamond of love par excellence. On Valentine's Day, it is often offered as a token of true love, both romantic and fusional. Pink is actually a mixture of white (purity, innocence) and red (sensuality, desire in love), making it an ideal colour combination to propose to the lady you love! It is particularly appealing because it's a new, feminine hue.

The second criterion for selecting a pink tourmaline engagement ring is the size and shape of the stone.
Stones come in a variety of sizes and shapes. Pink tourmaline is most often found as rods with a triangular base. As a result, tourmalines in emerald forms, more or less elongated, are very common. Since pink tourmaline is a soft stone, it can be cut into any shape you want: circular, oval, pear, or triangle. The aim is to give it a form that better highlights its various colours and intensities.
The third criteria for selecting a pink tourmaline engagement ring is the matching of the stone with the band (and therefore the choice of metal).
Pink tourmaline complements a wide range of metals, including white gold, yellow gold, pink gold, and black gold. It is entirely dependent on your personal interests. However, here are few pointers: Small pale pink tourmalines are best matched with understated metals like white gold, silver, or even rose gold, which will enable them to fully articulate their brilliance and subtle nuances. Pink tourmalines that are larger or more vivid go well with yellow or black gold.
