It's name after the city of Areia - where the campus of Universidade Federal da Paraíba is located.
A step-cut African Paraiba of a mysterious purple shade combining the calm serenity of a blue and the fierce heat of a red is set in the center of the ring. The pair of bright blue Brazilian cabs are "high-voltage bookends" guarding the center gem. Positioned from East to West all stones are encircled by a sparkling frame of diamond micro pave.
