Ancient Egyptian legend has it that the beautiful tourmaline gemstone passed over the rainbow as it made its journey from the earth’s centre, acquiring its seven colours. The stunning stone is formed in prismatic crystal formations and boasts hexagonal pencils that run throughout the rock. Tourmaline is mined in many different colours, offering a very vivid and versatile option for adding to unique jewellery creations, including many from our extensive gemstone jewellery collection here at Berry’s Jewellers.
If you’re looking for a unique October birthday gift or want to treat yourself to a piece of jewellery that embodies a significant and sentimental meaning to you, our vast array of tourmaline gemstone jewellery designs will offer you plenty of choices. From green tourmaline and diamond fancy drop earrings to rubellite tourmaline dress rings and pink tourmaline diamond pendants – the collection is home to a whole host of unusual and eye-catching designs.
At Berry’s Jewellers, the diamonds and gemstones chosen by our specialist team are selected for their rare beauty and their quality. Each piece of tourmaline, whether deep green, hot pink or a mixture of different rainbow colours, must sit effortlessly alongside its carefully chosen precious metal and (in some cases) a selection of scintillating diamonds to evoke a sense of femininity and timelessness. October birthstone jewellery is not only popular with those that share their birthday with this colourful stone, however. It is also a stone chosen time and time again for its breath-taking, clean profile and its striking colours that often transition from one hue to another. To fully demonstrate its beauty, we’ve chosen a few designs from our current October birthstone jewellery collections here at Berry’s Jewellers, starting with a favourite of ours.
The transition between deep luscious green tones and warm pink shades in this pink and green tourmaline pendant is enough to tempt any gemstone jewellery lover. Whether you share your birthday with this special stone or not, the tourmaline and diamond pendant is perfect for adding a touch of colour and finesse to any attire. The gemstone pendant easily becomes the centrepiece to any outfit.
The base of the pendant begins with a rich pink tone and gradually melts into intense green shades evoking a watermelon combination. The top of the gemstone is met with a single square-shaped diamond held into place by a classic four claw setting crafted from 18ct white gold. The rest of the design is finished in the same white gold apart from the frame around the tourmaline gemstone, which is finished in 18ct rose gold. The tourmaline and diamond pendant hangs from an adjustable Spiga chain that can be worn at a shorter length of 40cm or a longer length of 46cm. This special piece of tourmaline jewellery perfectly captures the beauty of this gemstone and can easily be paired with other pieces from our tourmaline jewellery collection.
These striking green tourmaline drop earrings make an ideal alternative to emerald gemstone jewellery designs and will appeal to October-born ladies with a preference for green gemstone jewellery. These delicate drop earrings have been crafted from 18ct white gold – a precious metal that is often chosen for its contemporary lustre. The earrings secure comfortably to the back of the ears with a practical post and butterfly fastening and boast a striking pear-cut green tourmaline centrepiece. The rich green tones of this October birthstone are beautifully complemented by a halo of round brilliant-cut diamonds. The frame of light adds brightness and brilliance to the overall design. The pear-shaped drop hangs effortlessly from a pave diamond stud feature, creating the impression of a much larger diamond centrepiece.
Vintage jewellery lovers are sure to fall in love with this eye-catching cushion-shaped gemstone dress ring. The focal feature of the entire design is a large pink tourmaline gemstone, shaped into a cushion cut and surrounded by a halo cluster of round brilliant-cut diamonds. Adding a vintage charm to the design is a pronounced four claw setting and a frilled millgrain edging for added depth and character. The cushion-cut pink tourmaline and diamond halo cluster dress ring is crafted from platinum. This attention-grabbing pink tourmaline and diamond halo cluster ring is sure to put a smile on a special October-born lady this autumn, promising to meld the intense pink shades of this beautiful gemstone with a dramatic display of fire and brilliance from the classic diamond.
Something a little different. This green tourmaline and diamond pendant belongs to our ever-popular range of tourmaline jewellery and boasts a unique shape. The openwork frame that surrounds the green tourmaline centrepiece is a voluptuous, rounded shape with stunning curves that are enhanced by scintillating round brilliant-cut diamonds. A drop bar, which connects the pendant with the chain, is also encrusted with radiant diamonds. The October gemstone pendant design is crafted from 18ct white gold and the rectangular-shaped green tourmaline gemstone is held inside a prong setting that enables maximum light to enter each of its beautifully faceted edges. The design bridges the gap between modern and traditional jewellery designs and hangs from an adjustable trace chain that can be worn between the lengths of 42cm and 46cm. This is an elaborate and remarkably feminine design that will add the perfect finishing touches to classic evening attire or an elegant dinner dress.
Lastly, we couldn’t finish this article on our favourite October birthstone jewellery pieces without showcasing this stunning turquoise-hued tourmaline ring. The gemstone centrepiece is an oval-shaped indicolite tourmaline that captivates with its deep bluey-green tones. The design will make the ultimate birthday gift for ladies who like to add a touch of colour to their favourite outfit, as well as those with a preference for designs with a subtle vintage-inspired edge. The oval-cut indicolite tourmaline is enhanced by a border of round brilliant-cut diamonds that create a halo formation around the ocean-coloured tones of the central stone. Beautifully flowing 18ct white gold shoulders flow into the rest of the polished band for a comfortable fit against the finger.
