The color of the stone was not like the picture. Rather than a true pink, it was more of a rhodelite garnet color or a very dark watermelon color. This one was returned.

The stone is a simply stunning shade, a perfect watermelon pink! It is without inclusion, sparklingly clear. The sterling bezel holding the stone has light holes on front and back (north/south sides) which don't show in the on-line photo. They are nearly invisible in person, except that light coming through the table of the stone exits from these holes like light coming through pink stained glass windows. These holes will also allow you to thoroughly clean the stone. I bought this ring along with the oval pink tourmaline ring #299415, and the two look lovely stacked together. I recently saw an antique ring set with a pink sapphire of about the same size, and this tourmaline is every bit as beautiful as that sapphire, at a tiny fraction of the cost!
