Drop earring design by Susan Schube, with a full 2-1/4" of pink, green and parti-color tourmalines dangling from lever back ear wires. The hot pink and forest green colors are picked up again in the pear-shaped cabochon drops. Articulated for maximum movement and sparkle, these earrings are made in 14 karat yellow gold.
Ancient lore says that tourmaline is in all colors because it traveled to earth on a rainbow and gathered all the rainbow's colors. Tourmaline is believed to strengthen the body and spirit, especially the nervous system, blood and lymphs. It was also believed to inspire creativity, and was used as a talisman by artists and writers.
