Vintage Imperial Topaz Diamond Ring
Imperial topaz – what is it? – not a variety of topaz but rather a color designation. When the hue of the gem has pinky peach tones, it is then considered to be Imperial topaz. This is one of the most highly prized of all the colors of the topaz family which comes in shades such as white, golden, blue, browns and reddish. Only two areas have produced Imperial topaz – the Ural Mountains in Russia and a city in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais. Neither site has produced these gems for a number of years.
Here the rare natural gemstone is in a cushion cut of an amazing 7.76 carats of pure bliss! Prong set in 18k yellow gold, the gorgeous gem is placed upon a striking surround of a variety of twenty-four (24) glimmering diamonds. In all, ten (10) round brilliant cut, eight (8) marquise cut and six (6) baguette diamonds with an estimated total of 1.3 carats (H-I average color; VS2 clarity) set in 18k white gold form what can be imagined as rays of the sun. Split shoulders and a shank of 18k yellow gold complete a magnificent example of the jeweler’s art. Not for the faint of heart, this makes an impact!
