9CT GOLD OVAL BLUE TOPAZ PENDANT
We think that this simple 9ct Gold Blue Topaz pendant is a very special necklace indeed here at Christine Alexander!
Although a gemstone pendant isn't unusual to come across, the pale-coloured, icy Topaz stone sets this pendant apart from the rest.
The masterfully hand-cut Blue Topaz glitters ice blue sparkles that compete with the morning frost when the sun hits just right... crystal clear!
The basket setting just amplifies and strengthens the brightness of the topaz tenfold, allowing light to bounce through the stone, and perfectly contrasting the warm Yellow Gold against the pastel blue hues.
What a perfect way to interpret the "something old, something blue" saying for your special day...?
Chain sold separately (suggested). This pendant is also available in Amethyst and Garnet, and matching stud earrings are also available.
Topaz has been known as a powerful magnetic stone throughout the ages, that attracts love and fortune. Having been discovered over 2500 years ago, Topaz gems are also called apocalyptic stones. The Greeks felt that it gave them strength, as well as supposedly relieving insomnia, and restoring sanity; it was even said to be able to detect poisons. The Egyptians believed the stone received its colour from the golden glow of the Sun God - Ra. In the 1100s a large Golden Topaz was said to have been donated to a monastery by Lady Hildegarde (wife of Theodoric, Count of Holland), which was so luminous that it was used at night to light the inside of the chapel. In Europe during the Renaissance (1300 – 1600) Topaz was believed to break evil spells and dispel anger.
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 Sky Blue.
