About

An incredibly rare yellow tourmaline shines with all the brilliance of the sun in this stunning pendant. Weighing an astounding 14.76 carats, this trilliant-cut gem is set with 0.50 carats of white diamonds in its platinum setting.

One of the rarest of all tourmalines, canary yellow tourmalines were only recently discovered in Malawi in 2000. While tourmalines are celebrated as a “gemstone of the rainbow” for the incredible array of colors in which they are found, yellow stones remained elusive until recently. The brilliant jewels of Malawi in East Africa contain fine traces of magnesium, which produce this highly sought after radiant lemon hue.

Large yellow tourmalines such as this one are even rarer. Only about 10% of these stones found are of gemstone quality; of these, only 5% weigh more than one carat. To find a yellow tourmaline weighing 14.76 carats with this brilliant color is absolutely extraordinary.
