I recently purchased a handmade bicolor tourmaline engagement ring and I am absolutely thrilled with it! The craftsmanship is outstanding, and the attention to detail is superb. The ring is a true work of art.
The tourmaline itself is stunning, with its rich hues of green and pink. The bicolor effect is truly mesmerizing and gives the ring a unique and striking appearance. The stone is also of excellent quality and clarity, which adds to its overall beauty.
The setting of the ring is equally impressive. The delicate prongs securely hold the stone in place, while the band is comfortable to wear and fits perfectly. The ring is truly a piece of jewelry that can be worn and cherished for a lifetime.

Maine is fondly known for its iconic rocky coasts, lush green mountains, and, of course, lobster. But if you look below the surface, Maine is also home to some of the most dazzling gemstones on the planet.

MMGM’s jewelry collection exclusively utilizes gemstones found by small local mining families, many of which can be traced to the exact pocket from which they were pulled. By purchasing a piece of MMGM jewelry, you not only support local artists, craftspeople, and the museum, but you become part of the ongoing provenance of a precious gem.
