London Blue Topaz Princess


About this design:

I just love this London Blue Topaz in a rounded/square shape ... 37.50 whopping carats!! (if you see any marks on the stone on the close up, they are probably my fingerprints!)

Set with wonderful wedding quality white pearls with vermeil spacers and a front-close toggle clasp. A boutique that I'm in moved to a HOT new location in Winter Park, FL with lots of glass windows, so I'm hoping this goes in a front case with the coordinating earrings ... perfect for a June bride! (something old, something new, something borrowed, something BLUE!!)

    I’ve never seen London Blue Topaz “up close and personal”, but that stone looks absolutely gorgeous, and I love the pairing with the simple pearl and vermeil strand…couldn’t be more perfect! :D

    My husband gave me a London Blue Topaz ring for Chrismas. This necklace would go perfectly with it. Is it for sale?
