We have had this collection of Swiss Blue Topaz stones custom cut into a unique half moon shape and set them with a simple sterling silver bezel. Topaz is one of the hardest naturally occurring minerals (Mohs hardness of 8) and is the hardest of any silicate (i.e., silicon-based) mineral. This hardness combined with its unusual transparency and variety of colours makes it a great stone to make durable, beautiful jewellery.
Topaz is the birthstone for November. It is called "The Writer's Stone". Traditionally Blue Topaz stones are thought to heighten one's ability to communicate better, and to express oneself in a meaningful way, both when speaking or when writing.
Each half moon measures 10mm long x 6mm deep. We have presented each half moon on a 42cm Italian sterling silver fine curb chain.
