The October Birthstone Pendant

18ct yellow gold vermeil and tourmaline pendant
Designer's Notes +

Along with the opal, the coloured tourmaline is the birthstone for October. For centuries, various cultures have had different beliefs about what virtues the tourmaline can bring to the wearer. In 18th Century literature references can be found citing this stone to be considered helpful to artists, authors, actors and other creative. Others at the time believed the stone to have sleep-inducing powers if wrapped in silk. Overall, the gem has always been highly valued by alchemists who, because of the tourmaline’s pyroelectric effect, believed it to be a gem related to the philosopher’s stone – a stone that was believed to grant enlightenment, give power over the spiritual, reconcile opposites and turn base metals into gold. In modern times the tourmaline continues to be used by tribes in Africa, America and Australia as a talisman to protect from danger.
