A large 18 karat yellow gold cocktail ring featuring a carved pink tourmaline, attributed to Brazilian designer, Burle Marx. The ring features textured gold shoulders which house a rim set, richly coloured pink tourmaline at an estimated 35 carats. Burle Marx is known for using these types of richly coloured semiprecious stones in bold jewellery during the second half of the 20th century. Whilst only marked '18k' the piece is most likely an unsigned piece by the famous designer.
