A Brazilian Imperial Topaz is set, point up, in a solid 22 karat gold setting, bezel and band, with triangular granulation to echo the shape of the Pyramid.
This gemstone is completely natural with beautiful mineral characteristics.
Made in the traditions of ancient goldsmiths, every part of this 22k gold ring has been hand fabricated, starting with a small glob of gold. Using ancient techniques, the artist has made sheet, wire, and granules over the course of several weeks.
Granulation was used as embellishment in ancient times and is done today by a relatively small number of goldsmiths. Granulation takes years of practice using the purest of metals. Each tiny granule is made by hand and making enough for one piece of jewelry can take weeks. Each granule is then placed one by one on the piece with a tiny brush. The piece is heated almost to the melting point. At that precise moment, the granules fuse and become one with the item being granulated.
