When looking for a gemstone that has virtually every colour of the rainbow Tourmaline is the one that seems to be the most popular. First we couldn’t get enough of the water melon red/pink tourmaline but now what seems to be trending is the black tourmaline. Wearing specific gemstones particular to our individual tastes is actually not such a new inspiration really, as gemstones have been used for centuries to aid in health recovery or worn for their healing and protective qualities.
When trying to modernize this old concept, I am convinced that wearing a pearl earring with your desired protective stone as seen here with a black pearl and tourmaline – is a fashionable way to go about it. I really think I am onto something special! and how easy it is to wear daily.
When researching its attributes here are some interesting observations I have listed below about the Black Tourmaline. It’s a protective stone which repels and blocks negative energies and psychic attack. This gemstone also aids in the removal of negative energies within a person or a space. It can cleanse, purify, and transform dense energy into a lighter vibration.

Here’s my version of a subtle earring, using the powerful properties of the black tourmaline and the femininity of the gracious black pearl (which incidentally helps in balancing hormones)
I am forever on the look out for fine ladies or women of royalty wearing exceptional pearl jewellery. Today I was thrilled to see this wonderful portrait of Catherine the Great, by Fedor Rokotov from 1763. I immediately focused as I usually do on the pearls of the wearer. The size of these amazing pearls in here hair would in life take your breath away. Remembering pearls were incredibly rare in the 1800’s and before. We do know that Russian aristocrats adored pearls but just feast your eyes on eyes this!
