Piece of the Week: ‘Twilight Garden’ Imperial Topaz Ring
Sunrise hues and warm rose gold come together in a regal jewel.
The “Twilight Garden” imperial topaz ring from Dallas Prince Designs combines sparkling gemstones shaped into a sun set in a feminine rose gold for a piece that feels fiery yet truly regal.
In this piece, a 4-carat oval-shape peach imperial topaz center stone is surrounded by a halo of 4-carats of trillion-cut golden imperial topaz to create the sun shape, with .60 carats of white diamonds accenting the motif.
With a history that includes a period of being restricted to only royal families in Russia and early beliefs that it symbolized the Egyptian sun god, Ra, imperial topaz has touched several cultures. Also known as precious topaz, it’s often regarded as also providing a metaphysical sense of protection and strength.
The ring is from Dallas Prince Designs’ “Twilight Garden” collection, which is inspired by a shadowed garden on the eve of midnight and features jewels that convey the many moods of mystery as the moonlight changes.
This ring was also a 2022 Spectrum Award Winner in the “Business Day Wear / Gem Diva” category.
