Description : Upper section is a large cushion shaped pink topaz, rounded rectangular in shape, in a scalloped gold mount. It floats within a ring of tiny enamel beads surrounded in turn by a ring of pearls with detailed stations at the cardinal points. We believe that the pearls are natural, but the pearls have not been tested. The decoration on either side, top and bottom are scrolls of calibre cut and set emeralds within gold mounts, bordered by black enamel. This gives a lovely flower-like effect. <P><P>
The drop is another botanic theme with a long pink topaz 'bud' emerging from a 'calyx' of gold, emeralds, moving pearls and set with rosecut diamonds. The drop moves independently as do the pearls on either side. <P><P>
