I love it when people send me photographs of the beautiful things they have made from the stones they have bought from me. Stones always look incomparably better when set, and their natural beauty properly framed. This ring is a design by Trina Allen of TLA Designs; an 8mm pink tourmaline in a soft apricot shade, bezel set in sterling silver with a lovely hammered band. Lovely clean, elegant lines which set off the warm pink of the stone beautifully, and you know, the older I get, the more I like pink. It’s happy and uplifting and it makes you smile, so chuck out that basic black; spring is here, the blossom is blooming and it’s pink all over!
