Nicolas of Palm Beach jewelry are designed around the logo of the “circle of dolphins” as their flagship line of elegant fashion.
The company also has a Museum Collection of Paraiba Tourmalines as well as Diamond, Ruby, Emerald and Sapphire jewelry.
The Paraiba Tourmaline is much more expensive than other tourmalines, which have a large variety of colors. The Paraiba Tourmaline, originally discovered in the Paraiba section of Brazil contains copper, magnesium and other elements that give it a brilliant vibrancy, now celebated throughout the world. These are some of the rarest and most expensive gemstones in the world. Later found in mines in Nigeria and Mozambique originally created confusion in the gemstone world. The Committee on Harmonization later ruled that stones of certain regions other than Brazil could be called paraibas in the trade.
It was the same controversy that took place when California started producing “champagne” and there were rulings that only products from the Champagne Valley in France could be called “champagne”. Since most of the mines in the world have now been mined out there are so few gemstones that prices have now soared for perfect stones to over $100,000.00 per Ct. Other stones with copper and magnesium with different colors are often referred to as cuprians (containing copper) etc. While tourmalines without these elements are beautiful and actually more eye clean they do not command the same lofty prices and are accordingly more affordably priced and very attractive. All jewelry from Nicolas of Palm Beach is sold in consultation with certified gemologists so you can always be sure your receive exactly what is represented, a policy important to our next “iconic” brand.
