It is widely believed that tourmaline, gets its name from Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon) where, the word ‘turmali’ means, many colors. Interesting because, tourmaline is naturally found in a range of colors green, pink, yellow, blue and red are the most popular when it comes to tourmaline rings and other jewelry with tourmaline gemstones. Ancient Sri Lankan folklore says that, tourmaline is a gem that dropped from heaven. It further describes how, the gem picked its colors from the rainbow!

While folklore adds interest to a gem, there are some scientific facts that reveal amazing details of the tourmaline gemstone. The gem is durable and will not scratch or chip easily. All the colors of tourmaline are secure, the gemstone has never been known to fade in daylight or lights that are domestically used. This obviously means that, your tourmaline cladagh ring, would not need much of fuss and caution when being worn. Having said that, it is important to remember that jewels and gems, should never be exposed to strong chemicals, high heat or strong detergents.

We occasionally do get requests for cladagh gemstone rings with black tourmaline. Just to mention that, green tourmaline can at times, appear very dark – almost black but, that is really not what the term ‘black’ tourmaline refers to. Nature has bestowed us with real black tourmaline, also referred to as ‘schorl’. Most cladagh black tourmaline requests, come from people who believe in the special properties of gems and crystals. The problem with black tourmaline is that, it chips and scratches quite easily. Cutting and polishing the gem can be very challenging, as the gem keeps getting scratched and etched during the cutting process. So while we can custom make a cladagh tourmaline ring with a black tourmaline gem, do not expect the gem to have a fine cut and polish like a black onyx or other gem.

The important thing about Kaisilver cladagh rings is that, the gold or silver ring are crafted to the same premium standards. And since the true meaning of the historic jewel lies in its features (the heart, crown and hands), the gold or silver cladagh ring, would have the same degree of significance. You can therefore pick a gold or silver ring, based on your personal preference and budget.

This report on the cladagh ring, would be incomplete without a short narration on the history and meaning of the ring. A young fisherman by the name of Robert Joyce, was once captured by pirates and sold as a slave to a wealthy goldsmith. The story dates back to over 400 years when, slavery was rampant. Put through the harsh rigors of slavery, Robert kept thinking about his beloved – the young lady lived in the same Irish village (where Robert lived) named Cladagh. Robert thought of making a jewel for her and hoped, to give it to her when he was freed from slavery. The jewel would express his true love for the lady. Years later when Robert Joyce was a free man, he rushed back to his village and handed over the jewel to her. The jewel was a special ring with features that, symbolized his feelings for the lady. The ring had a heart in the center that signified love, the hands were symbolic of togetherness and the crown expressed his loyalty. The ring came to be known as the Cladagh ring – named after the village in which, Robert and his lady lived, got married and spent the rest of their lives.
