You're looking at a solid 9ct Goldring with a majestic London Blue Topaz.
This semi-precious stone is beautifully faceted and has the rare bullet cut, which reflects the light extraordinarily.
The ring is polished and the shank has a half round 3D profile that is very comfortable to wear.
Topaz has been used in jewellery for centuries, used in amulets of power and influence.
Its rarity has meant that it has become associated with glory and success.
The ancient Greek believed, this gem possessed the power to increase strength.
Today Topaz is used to treat insomnia, it stimulates blood circulation and increases appetite.
Probably the most famous Topaz is a colourless, clear one that originally was long thought to be a Diamond.
It is a 1680-carat stone known as the 'Braganca Diamond' that is set in the Portuguese Crown Jewels.
Topaz is traditionally given on 4th, 19th and 23rd Wedding
Among the trade names for the various shades of blue are Sky Blue, Swiss Blue and London Blue.
The lightest of these shades is Sky Blue Topaz, which resembles a watery summer sky, and darkest is the velvety blue of the London Blue as seen here.
