For one of my earliest ring designs, I wanted to recreate the same feeling that a pebble does when thrown into a pool of water. As if the pebble were being the cause of the ripples.
There is something magical about the rings of water that appear when you throw a stone out to sea. An endless flow of ripples spills out, leaving the pattern of a whirlpool So, I named my ring: Whirlpool, and over the years, I have set deep blue sapphires, fiery spinels, and mossy green peridots, at the heart of the ripples. Whirlpool is the perfect gift for a special person who makes ripples in your life.
Topaz is an aluminium fluoro-hydroxyl-silicate that occurs in large crystals, mostly in Brazil. Glowing with the gift of healing, a blue topaz (the birthstone for November) is said to help your mind and body feel restored, a symbol of friendship, love, honesty, and fidelity. While a golden yellow topaz, permeated with healing warmth and life like the dazzling sun, will rejuvenate both your mind and body. Highly protective, the magic set within these stones is believed to make the wearer invisible to danger.
