What is a Rubelite?

Rubelite is the name of the pink to red colored hues of tourmaline. Tourmalines are semi-precious stones that come in a variety of colors.

There are red and pink tourmalines in many subtle differences, which include a soft pink, a fine bright pink, an deep violet and a bold ruby-red. However, only a few of these are deserving to call themselves ‘rubelites’. The name comes from the Latin ‘rubellus’, which means reddish. Rubelites are not just red or bright pink tourmalines. There is an important principle for this beautiful gemstone, and that is the way its color behaves in daylight and artificial light. Many gemstones change their color depending on the light source. A true rubelite does not. It shines just as intensely in artificial light as it does in daylight. The color of most other pink or red tourmalines, by contrast, displays a more or less clearly visible tinge of brown in artificial light.

This stunning, up and coming stone has caught Avianti’s eye and we have begun to add this into our fine jewelry collection.

This is one of our Rubelite in Rose Gold Engagement Ring that you can find on Etsy.

 

Another design is the Rubelite in another Rose Gold setting with Diamonds, again, found here on Etsy.

We personally think that the Rose Gold really brings out the color of the Rubelite and the accent diamonds always add an extra shine.

But we love to help our client’s dreams come true so we even created a couple Rubelites in a White Gold setting.

One of them is a Rubelite Ring with a Twisted Split Shank.

Another lovely Rubelite Ring has a Diamond Twisted Split Shank cast in White Gold.
