Surrounded by fine pearls, this imperial topaz of over 16 carats boasts a particularly sought-after shade: champagne and peach (i.e. pinky-orange) at each end. It comes from Ouro Preto in the state of Minas Gerais: a region in Brazil where all these stones were mined at the time.


This imperial topaz embodies all the cultural and artistic aspects of the 19th century: in portraits of the European (and especially Portuguese) aristocracy of that period, their magnificent jewelry generally consisted of imperial topazes. Today, the stone is appreciated by enlightened collectors.
