Pink Topaz and diamond ring, circa 1910. At the centre of this ring is a topaz, in a particularly attractive shade of soft pink. The pink variety of this historic stone was hugely popular in the 18th and early 19th century, spurred on by discoveries in Brazil and Russia, and again in the opening decades of the 20th century, when its pastel pink hue was the perfect accompaniment to the glittering jewels of platinum, diamonds and pearls which adorned high society. Finely bordered with yellow gold to complement its colour, this cherry blossom coloured stone is set within a millegrained platinum border of antique circular-cut diamonds, the undulating outline of the mount giving the ring a graceful, almost Mughal touch. A refined and beautiful jewel, which perfectly embodies the elegance and grace of the Belle Epoque.
Why I love it...
“ Pink topaz is one of my favourite gemstones. This particular specimen is the perfect shade of delicate pink set in a fine yellow gold setting, it looks incredibly pretty on the hand. ”
