The luxurious Alhambra topaz pendant showcases a gorgeous Swiss Blue topaz surrounded by eight marquise cut peridots, in vermeil - 24 carat gold-plated silver with extra thickness for hard-wearing. The Alhambra pendant is also available as a fiery Rhodolite Garnet pendant, surrounded with Mandarin garnets, or the vivid green of the unique Chrome Diopside (otherwise known as Siberian emerald) set off by Rhodolite Garnets. Both pendants are sold with a lovely Amberta vermeil snake chain to set of this lovely gemstone necklace.
The amazing Alhambra blue topaz ring exhibits the varied tones of Swiss Blue Topaz and London Blue Topaz. The vivid Alhambra garnet ring presents the pink of Rhodolite Garnet accented with Mandarin Garnets. Alternatively, the striking Alhambra tourmaline ring tones the intensity of the Rhodolite garnets with the lighter clarity of pink tourmaline. Both these sterling silver rings have a unique setting for the marquise gemstones, channel set flush.
The range concludes with a flourish of elegant spiral earrings. Whichever gemstone earrings you love, from Topaz earrings, to Garnet earrings, Amethyst earrings or Chrome Diopside earrings , if you love colour then you have to own some of these!
It won't have escaped your notice that Topaz is the November birthstone is Topaz, Garnet is the January birthstone, and Peridot is the August birthstone. Perhaps you have a birthday coming up? But it's no problem if you were born in any other month, since I can make any birthstone jewellery to order!
