Britt’s Pick: Watermelon Tourmaline Mischa Ring By Lauren K


What’s better than a gorgeous ring featuring a brightly colored gemstone? A gorgeous ring featuring a brightly colored gemstone that showcases more than one color.

While thoughts of watermelon are typically reserved for the summer and its heat, there’s something about this one that feels wonderfully wintry. A juicy watermelon tourmaline displaying a mystical combination of pink, purple, and blue, the centerpiece of this ring by the stellar Lauren K feels like it might be at home in a winter’s fairy tale—the crown jewel of an ice castle–residing royal family.

It could be that Frozen’s Elsa cast a spell of ice over the swirling colors of the gem, forever encasing the hues in an enchanted display of picturesque perfection.

If you prefer summer to winter in light of the bitter cold that’s undoubtedly well on its way in many parts of the country, imagine the gemstone instead as a frozen treat for those dog days, colorful and quenching even in the most intense heat.

Lauren K does what it always does best and lets the stone shine in its optimal setting, framing it in an outline of diamonds that trail down the ring’s thin band. It takes artful restraint not to go bananas with design elements for such a tremendous stone, but the designer knows how best to let it sing. I love that it’s in yellow gold, a warm touch to an otherwise cool allover tone, one that works beautifully because the metal isn’t overpowering.

No matter the season, this multicolor beauty will keep a good jewelry lover satiated for color come snow, rain, or sunshine. Yet another tantalizing creation by Lauren K, just in time for the winter holiday season.
