18CT WHITE GOLD PRINCESS CUT BLUE TOPAZ & DIAMOND PENDANT
An elegant and timeless pendant finely rendered in 18ct White Gold to add instant glamour to your outfit. Wear it short as a choker for a smart work look - or wear it long over a black cocktail dress for effortless, sexy sparkle. Enhance your appearance with this magnificent piece of craftsmanship. Fall in love with this intriguing design, that will add a touch of glamour to your appearance.
This beauty is lavishly set with a fabulous princess cut Blue Topaz of 1.42cts, with a small but sparkly Diamond at each corner. Total diamond weight is 0.05cts. Unusually, the bale is on the corner, so the diamonds are at the compass points north, south, east and west rather than squarely set as accents. I love this detail; this pendant is a must-have.
Dimensions: 16mm (including bale) x 12mm
Matching stud earrings are available to order; please enquire. Both are also available in Aquamarine, Amethyst, Garnet and Prasiolite (or Green Amethyst).
Pendant only; chain sold separately. I recommend this one.

Topaz is its own species and comes in a wide variety of colours. The Portuguese call the colourless type “pingos D’agoa” which means “Drops of Water”. Most colours of Topaz on the market today, with the exception of colourless, light blue and yellow, derive their colour from either irradiation or heat treatment (if you heat yellow Topaz from the Ouro Preto region of Brazil, it is possible to turn it pinkish). Today Topaz is sometimes coated, resulting in glorious multi-coloured Mystic Topaz. Blue was once amongst the rarest colour to be seen in Topaz. Today, through colour treatments being refined, there are three stunning Blue Topaz colours: Sky Blue, Swiss Blue and London Blue. This pendant is a Swiss Blue. Topaz is the birthstone for November and Blue Topaz the gift for the fourth wedding anniversary.
Diamonds are dated by analyzing inclusions using the decay of radioactive isotopes. Those found in kimberlites have ages ranging from 1 to 3.5 billion years, and there can be multiple ages in the same kimberlite, indicating multiple episodes of Diamond formation. Although Diamonds on Earth are rare, they are very common in space. Sufficiently small Diamonds can form in the cold of space because their lower surface energy makes them more stable than graphite. High-pressure experiments predict that large quantities of Diamonds condense from methane into a "Diamond rain" on the ice giant planets Uranus and Neptune. Diamonds may exist in carbon-rich stars, particularly white dwarfs. Diamonds formed in stars may have been the first minerals.
