9CT GOLD PASSION RAINFOREST TOPAZ & DIAMOND RING
I'm so pleased to have snagged a couple of these; they sold out from my supplier almost immediately! A fabulous deep green stone, Passion Rainforest Topaz is relatively new to the gemstone market and proving a popular alternative to Emerald. In this ring, the .59ct central brilliant-cut stone is set in 9ct Yellow Gold and accented with sparkly little Diamonds.
Available in sizes L and O only, each sizeable within a small range.

Passion Rainforest Topaz is a member of the Precious Topaz gemstone family. Green in colour with hints of teal/blue, this gemstone is White Topaz (colourless), treated with a diffusion process to produce a permanent and stable rainforest-green colour. At an 8.0 on the Mohs scale, it is hard-wearing and great for people who love coloured gems and want an accessory that is durable and wearable.
What little we do know about the name Topaz is that the small island in the Red Sea which is today known as Zabargad was once named “Topazios”. Although the island was the source of Peridot for Cleopatra, Topaz was not mined there at that time. Others believe that the gem’s name originates from the Sanskrit word “tapaz”, which means fire.
