Qin and Han earrings in 18ct yellow gold with rub over set cushion facetted peridot (S) (3.64cts) and blue topaz (L) (9.35cts).

The key to this design and to Confucius that followed it, is a sense of colour. The unification of the two great Chinese dynasties :the Qin ( 221-207 BC) and the Han (206BC to 220 AD) inspired the juxtaposition of colours in the Qin and Han ring and earrings. The cut of the stone is all important and changes the intensity of the colour so that the stone that can sit alongside it cannot be chosen until both stones are cut and placed side by side. Many of the rings and earrings are unique because nature does not serve up an endless supply of perfect repeats - it is more creative! From the Journey to China.

Each earring measures approximately 21mm in length.

Blue Topaz

Topaz is an Aluminum fluoro- hyrdroxyl- silicate that occurs in large crystals mostly in Brazil. Its slightly turquoise blue hue, is similar to that of aquamarine. It is perhaps this colour that makes it the stone symbolising friendship and love, honest and fidelity. It is the birthstone for November.
