Rated 1 out of 5 by pattinvirginia This is NOT RUBELLITE, it is pink tourmaline.
This is a lovely cross with PINK stones. Light to medium PINK. I don't know who decided it met the RUBELLITE color standard, but the one I got isn't even close to the reddish tones of RUBELLITE. If you are looking for a pastel pink tourmaline, you will like this. But if you are looking for deep pink to reddish stones, you will be disappointed. As a pink tourmaline cross, I would recommend it, but not as RUBELLITE.

I should have taken the advice of the reviews and stayed away from this piece. I actually ordered two crosses hoping it would increase my chances of receiving one that leaned more toward red. Unfortunately I am very disappointed. One was extremely light pink, while the other one wasn't matched well at all, had a mix of light pink and medium pink stones. It seems I am more and more disappointed in my gemstone purchases from QVC. I realize there are variations in gem color, but the range of color that gets through quality control is just too large in my opinion. Especially in this piece. Rubellite is a very specific color, with little variation. I don't believe either piece I received comes close to being Rubellite.

Why does QVC do this? The item should be described correctly It is without a doubt PINK!!! I thought, I would pair it with a ruby and diamond ring and bracelet.... not now! The color is so off it's ridiculous.

I agree with the other reviewer. The stones in the cross that I received are pink. They match all my other pink tourmaline jewelry, NOT the rubellite ring I own that has a reddish color tourmaline more in keeping with what a rubellite is supposed to be.

Rubellite is a very specific range of color in the tourmaline family and these stones DO NOT meet that criteria. Now if you like pink tourmaline than you will like this cross. It is pretty and it is nice that it is an enhancer. Don't expect a deep color (at least not on the one I received), I really like rubellite so I will send back and try again. If my sample is the norm, than this is not a "Premier" piece of jewelry.

I received this cross today and have to say it is all as expected. Has a nice bail and the gold seems substantial enough. The stones are not red or redish if that is what you are expecting. They are a darker pink. If you are expecting the redish hue of a ruby or even other rubellites I have seen, you will be disappointed. It is a pretty cross, but for the price, I have not yet decided if I am keeping it.
