The reason why pink tourmaline rings are now considered to be outstanding choice for couples who are about to wed is due to its mystical and symbolic significance.  Pink tourmalines are believed to help both a long lasting friendship and companionship and of course, an enduring love that would stand the test of time.  This metaphysical element alone that legend keep referring to suggest that pink tourmaline stones will also balance the conscious and the subconscious mindset of a person.  The fact is, multicolored tourmalines are already established as the anniversary gemstone for the 8th year of marriage between couples.

Another reason why pink tourmaline rings are now gaining popularity as wedding ring choice among couple is that it is way cheaper than diamonds, gold or platinum rings.  It is a semi precious stone yet still tourmalines are widely appreciated by lots of jewelry enthusiasts because of the variety of colors available to choose from.  Indeed, the word tourmaline comes from the great combination of two Sinhalese words namely “tura” and “mali” which means “stone of many colors”.  The variety of tourmaline is distinguished due to the predominant chemical composition of each one; for example, black tourmalines have more iron in it, brown tourmalines have more magnesium, pink or rubellite and green tourmalines have more alkali, and many more.  The color is also dependent on how a certain tourmaline stone is being treated; if you undergo a pink tourmaline under heat treatment it is likely to end up darker and more vibrant in color.

Other choices for wedding rings as well as other wedding jewelry can also be quite expensive.  Diamond rings and gold rings for example are only made and accessible for those people who can afford them, and if both of you are saving money for other causes, then buying these types of rings may be inconvenient and impractical for you.  Platinum rings, on the other hand, may be the hardest and the most expensive metal, but durability is nothing when it comes to the aesthetic qualities of pink tourmaline rings.  The ruby like tourmalines – deep and clean pink – is really charmingly desirable.

There are many variations when it comes to wedding rings accented with pink tourmaline gemstones.  If you can really afford it, there are wedding bands made of sterling silver or platinum in which designed with both genuine pink tourmaline and diamond gems.  Some varieties of pink tourmalines are also set on yellow or white gold.  Whatever it is that you are planning to buy, always remember that the main symbolic significance of a wedding ring itself is to remind you that it is a symbol of committed love – the traditional symbol that the love between two people is unbreakable, everlasting love and friendship and enduring companionship.
