DESCRIPTION

A wonderful "Imperial" ripe peach topaz from the mines near Oro Preto, Brazil. The stone shows a peach hue that ripens towards each end of the elegant long (14x9mm) oval.

The design forms itself to the finger giving the impression of increased length. The slightly conical bezel slims the gem's outline. The ring shank is an overlapping design with polished edges. Handmade in our Lenox workshop.

Comments: A wonderful example of a true "Imperial" topaz.

The grading categories used here are based on the approach recommended in my book: Secrets Of The Gem Trade, The Connoisseur's Guide To Precious Gemstones.
