We adore so many aspects of this pendant. The pear shaped gem measures roughly .75 inches in length. With many facets to catch the light and magnify the color, it is an elegant choice. The tourmaline is an exquisite shade of green and the length adds a touch of elegance. The surrounding diamonds and 14k yellow gold complete the designs sophistication.

Gemstone Fact: Tourmaline has a 7.0-7.5 rating on the Mohs scale of hardness. The Mohs scale of hardness is a measure of how resistant a gemstone is to scratching. Diamonds measure a 10 on the Mohs scale of harness so they can only be scratched by another diamond, but a fingernail is only a 2.5 on the hardness scale.
