History: During the Renaissance in Europe, people believed that topaz could break spells and quell anger. Hindus deemed topaz sacred, believing that a pendant could bring wisdom and longevity to one's life. African shamans also treated the gemstone as sacred, using it in their healing rituals.

For centuries these stones have been associated with an Egyptian island located in the Red Sea once known as Topazios. Today, Topazios is called St. John's Island. The Old Testament of the Bible mentions topaz, meaning this stone has been precious for ages.

It is said to soothe, heal, re-motivate, and bring the wearer strength, loyalty, beauty, protection, healing, weight loss, joy, generosity, abundance, wisdom, enlightenment, knowledge, good health, virtues of leadership, and love. Topaz is known as the "lover of gold,"" as it is used to bring wealth and money.

Blue Topaz'' Believed to be first discovered in Germany, 1737 and then again in Brazil in the 1740s, the gemstone had been fairly mixed up with others throughout the different eras. Topaz was renowned as a stone with healing properties long before Europe's appreciation of the gemstone as an allegory of status and wealth.

This gemstone was carefully selected and hand-picked by a GIA-certified gemologist for its unique and rare natural characteristics. *Swiss blue topaz is a type of topaz gemstone that has a deep blue color. It is found primarily in Switzerland and is known for its intense color and clarity.

The earliest diamonds were found in India in 4th century BC, although the youngest of these deposits were formed 900 million years ago. A majority of these early stones were transported along the network of trade routes that connected India and China, commonly known as the Silk Road.

Gold was generally used for a couple thousand years solely to create things such as jewelry and idols for worship. This was until around 1500 BC when the ancient empire of Egypt, which benefited greatly from its gold-bearing region, Nubia, made gold the first official medium of exchange for international trade.

Although the origin of white color gold dates back to 1710, where it was discovered by two alchemists in Germany, it wasn't used widely until much later. White gold as we know it today was really popularised in the 1920s. Although it might seem strange, this luxury material came to popularity in wartime.
