Humphrey Pendant Colored Gemstone Navette Stainless Steel
Humphrey Colored Gemstone Pendant Navette Stainless Steel
with topaz blue 4 x 4 mm Princess
The navette pendant is a classic form of jewelry and very elegant. It is delicate, comfortable to wear and attracts attention. It underlines the personality of the wearer.
The pendant is matted. All edges are softened and feel soft. Humphrey uses a nickel free stainless steel.
The colored gemstone is held by the force (tension) of the stainless steel pendant. He literally seems to be floating. To ensure this, two notches in the shape of the colored gemstone are made using computer-controlled machines.
Humphrey has perfected this setting technique since the mid-1990s and offers a 2-year guarantee on the secure hold of the gemstone provided it is handled properly. However, the lifespan is unlimited. Most of the jewelry ever produced by Humphrey is still worn.
The pendant can be worn on a rubber necklace, a snake chain, a Venetian chain or a rope.
Topaz takes its name from an island in the Red Sea, which in ancient times was called Topazos. In fact, another mineral, olivine, which was long confused with topaz, was mined there. Another explanation of the name traces it back to the Sanskrit word tapas, meaning "fire" or "shining".
Known for at least 2000 years, topaz is one of the precious stones that form the foundations of the twelve gates to the city of God, New Jerusalem. These stones should serve as a symbol of beauty, splendor and defense against enemies.
The color of topaz range from yellow, light blue, light green, tawny, reddish brown, red, violet and colorless. Humphrey only uses blue and white topazes. Many topazes are changed in color by treatment. This also applies to our blue topazes, as these would otherwise result in enormous prices.
With a grade of 8 on the 10-part Mohs scale, topaz is one of the hardest of all gemstones - only diamond, sapphire and ruby are even harder.
A colored gemstone brings joy on many days and for a lifetime!
