Oh April..

Maybe it's the April showers, but this month I have found myself drawn to dramatic blues – the lucid shades of aquamarine and vibrant blue topaz especially.

So why not indulge in a little tour of some of the stunners at 18Karat?

Inspired by a floral bouquet of traditional and regal form – to me this stone seems reminiscent of the historical aristocracy... maybe a trinket of a French lady, or a Marie-Antoinette....

And we are back from my romantic wanderings.

This beautiful pendant features a striking 1.52ct. blue topaz, as well as 4 marquises cut diamonds and baguette accents – set in 18k white gold.


If you think size is what matters, then this 9.5ct. giant will certainly drive you wild – not only is she big, but beautiful as well.

This fancy floral cut aquamarine takes me to a remote Hawaiian beach with exquisite Polynesian flora... not to mention the cocktails.

Like everything else we build, this gem is set in 18k white gold.


The bezel is the oldest setting for a gem to occupy, and maybe that helps to explain the inherent romance this ring seems to hold – or possibly the intricate heart detail.

The setting, shape, and detail of this ring speaks to a Renaissance design sensibility, and for that, we love this little Romeo and Juliette ring.
Set in 18k white gold, with a 0.35ct. aquamarine at its center and 4 round cut diamonds flanking it.


Enjoy the sunshine between the showers!
