Inspired by the ring worn by Lady Diana and Princess Kate Middleton, these gorgeous halo style precious gemstone emerald earrings with diamonds feature two 11x9mm oval shaped natural green emeralds accented by 28 brilliant-cut round diamonds.
Somewhere in Brazil in the 1500s, a Spanish conquistador washed the dirt from a green tourmaline crystal and confused the vibrant gem with emerald. His confusion lived on until scientists recognized tourmaline as a distinct mineral species in the 1800s. The confusion about the stone’s identity is even reflected in its name, which comes from toramalli, which means “mixed gems” in Sinhalese (a language of Sri Lanka). It’s a term Dutch merchants applied to the multicolored, water-worn pebbles that miners found in the gem gravels of Ceylon (now Sri Lanka).
