* Swiss-blue topaz gemstone
* Cushion-cut solitaire style
* Set in a four-prong, sterling silver setting
Sure, diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but why limit yourself to just one gem when there’s a rainbow of stones out there? Start with a sparkle of Swiss-blue topaz, like the solitaire studs seen here.
From acclaimed gem e-tailer Blue Nile, they’re a mood-lifting alternative to classic pearls or diamonds that’s perfect for summer, and a new staple for the rest of the year as well.
Topaz actually has an exceptionally wide color range that, besides the deliciously blue hue here, includes various tones and saturations of brown, green, yellow, orange, red, pink and purple. Cut in the cushion style, its light-reflecting qualities are nicely maximized with the numerous facets of this cut, while enhancing the clear, stunning aqua color. A traditional, four-prong setting of sterling silver showcases the beauty of this gem without distraction.
Sized at 8mm, they make a glittering, colorful statement while still maintaining an understated poise. The simple, straightforward design allows for incredibly versatile wear — a pair of topaz solitaire earrings brings an unexpected pop of color to a black-tie look, and one just as suited for an afternoon game of tennis.
The gorgeous color evokes a mouth-watering, refreshing sensation, kind of like the sight of a swimming pool on a hot day. It’s a feeling as calm and cool as how they’ll look on you.
