This incredible dual-colour watermelon tourmaline has a unique appeal. Framed in a rubover setting, the rich 18ct yellow gold beautiful compliments the vivid pink and green. Disa has created the perfect balance between modern and contemporary, and rustic and ancient. The incredible tourmaline measures 22x14mm, and 11mm deep, on a 7mm band.
Size R, the first resize is complimentary.
Tourmaline is one of the birthstones of October, and is the more durable of the two, its counterpart being opal. Pink tourmaline embodies love and is associated with compassion and gentleness. It is also the gem that married couples traditionally gift on their 8th wedding anniversary.
Disa Allsopp is fascinated by ancient civilisations that worked in metal like the Egyptians and Etruscans. She uses hand hammering, forging and reticulation techniques in 18ct gold and silver to give a luxurious textured finish with a sense of history. Metal is left in it’s natural state, often rugged and patinated for an earthy finish. By incorporating gleaming jewels in rich colours she adds to the treasure-like quality, as if discovering an ancient hoard.
Born in London, Disa grew up in Barbados and studied at Middlesex University with a Postgraduate in Jewellery at Edinburgh College of Art & Design. Disa originally set up a workshop in Barbados and then returned to London in 1996 where she currently designs and makes all her jewellery.
