Watermelon tourmaline & Fairtrade gold
Beautiful and unique pair of watermelon tourmaline slices in these statement earrings. The little pink gemstones in the middle part of the earrings are also tourmalines.
All set in 18ct Fairtrade gold.
Made using a technique called reticulation. Reticulation permits us to create unique textures in gold. It takes a deft hand on the torch to get the desired results. With reticulation you can texture a surface of gold. It produces a ridged or ripply surface through controlled heating. The ridges of a reticulated surface are more pronounced than any other surface treatment. You can never get the same result twice, so a piece is always unique.
