Carved from a single piece of mother of pearl, the iridescent hibiscus flower evokes images of Hawaiian sunny skies and sandy beaches.
At the center of each delicate pearly flower lies a cluster of genuine blue topaz gemstones. Glowing as a natural beauty, mother-of-pearl has been
showcased in jewelry designs for thousands of years. Mother-of-pearl is the iridescent lining found on the inside of some mollusk shells such as
oysters, abalone, and mussel. In the 15th century, Queen Elizabeth I gave this luminous substance its more familiar name “mother-of-pearl,”
referring to the fact that these shells are the mother from which pearls are created. Due to the Queen’s blessing, mother-of-pearl experienced great popularity and was set in gold and silver. Blue topaz is the perfect complement to shimmering white mother of pearl. According to the well-known industry magazine, Coloured Stone, blue topaz has become the 2nd most popular coloured gemstone (sapphire is consistently number one).
This is not surprising. Topaz is a very hard material - 8 on the Mohs hardness scale - and blue topaz appears in a wide range of vivid hues with
a striking vitreous luster. Make her day with the Island Flower Ring and she’ll always be able to summon up a gentle island breeze. Ring sizes
available in sizes 5 - 10.
