Green tourmaline ring in sterling silver, with a fair trade round faceted forest green tourmaline. The gem is a dark forest green with strong flashes of emerald green when the ring is tilted in the light. The stone measures 6mm.

The gem is securely set in a durable, elegant solid sterling silver band. The rounded pyramid shape of the band is comfortable, attractive, and unisex. The setting has a low profile so that it doesn’t stick up unduly from the finger to catch on things, and the back of the gem is accessible for easy cleaning.

Pantone's fashion Color of the Year for 2013 is Emerald Green, and these are a fantastic rendition of that trendy and refreshing color. We sell emeralds (they're hard to keep in stock, so email us your request if you don't see them in the shop), but we're proud to offer a large additional selection of natural emerald green gemstones.

Your purchase will typically ship within 1-2 weeks; jewelry items are usually made to order for you and require a certain amount of lead time before shipping. We typically ship USPS first class with delivery confirmation. Items are mailed in a cardboard box and are gift boxed inside the package.

Solid, Quality Precious Metals
The metal used is Argentium sterling silver, a special tarnish-resistant alloy. It is genuine .925 sterling silver, with the advantage of being significantly less prone to tarnishing than most sterling silver.

About Distinction Jewelry Fair Trade

I am a US broker for quality fair trade gemstones and rough from Kenya, and also offer a variety of fine mineral specimens and rough from other locations around the world including the United States. My fair trade items contain gems that either:

1. I am brokering for small dealers in Kenya or other countries. These gems have been entrusted to me to bring to market for fair prices in the US. When you buy one of these gems, or jewelry containing them, I immediately send 50% of the purchase price of the gem to the dealer. Not some tiny amount of the sale that constitutes a "fair wage" as paid by some so-called fair trade organizations - but an actual 50/50 share.

These stones come straight from small local operations and your purchase will mean a great deal to them. You will be a direct supporter of small, hard-working individual business owners in a country where the average per capita income is under US $800 per year.

2. Were purchased as rough at fair prices from the miner, or from a dealer very close to the source, and cut under my control by individuals or small business employees paid fair wages. For example, I might buy a piece of Oregon blue opal rough from the man who collected it and pried it out of the host rock right here in my state, and send it to a faceting artist here in the US for cutting. As another example, I might purchase a rough aquamarine from the local mining community on the ground in Namibia, bring it home to the US with me, and have it cut.

The actual jewelry making is all done by me, using recycled precious metals. I am unusually involved in the origins of my gemstones and will not sell anything I suspect was produced under unfair trade conditions. The difference in my fair trade section is that I have had enough personal control over the entire process to be *certain* that fair trade principles were respected.

The buying power of my small but successful business goes to support other small businesses in the US and abroad; the trickle-down effect of the money you spend at Distinction Jewelry has a positive impact on many people.

About My Ring Collections

I make three categories of rings; high end custom CAD/CAM assisted designs (typically customized to customer’s exact specifications, made with 14k gold or better, price $800-30,000), hand fabricated art rings (made from precious metal sheet and wire, soldered, one of a kind, price $30-900), and sterling silver cast rings (standard design, stone setting and finish work done by hand, price $50-700).

These sterling silver cast rings are my most affordable thanks to reduced labor; however there are limitations on stone size, shape, and ring size as they are standardized. I can size the rings up for a minor fee.
