(Rubino Oro is the Italian name for the color of glass, which means simply gold pink, but doesn't it sound much neater in it's native Italian?)

Yes, watermelon. I was reminded of it when I ran across this photo of a wonderful slice of Watermelon Tourmaline. So pink and juicy it looks good enough to eat. Except you wouldn't want to swallow that lovely little diamond in the center. This piece belongs to my good friend Cheryl, and is filled with a double strand of variegated pink and green tourmaline and freshwater pearls. A faceted barrel-shaped tourmaline and Rubino Oro lampwork round complete the dangle.
