Topaz has attracted a lot of attention as a gem throughout time. Even the most remote cultures used it in their jewelry and ornaments, considering it of great importance. On one hand the beauty of Topaz makes this precious stone one of the favorites in the gemstone world, yet on the other hand, the halo of legend that surrounds it gives it a special mystery that accentuates its power of seduction throughout the centuries. In ancient Egypt they considered the golden reflections of the imperial Topaz to be the work of Ra himself, the Sun God. Both Greeks and Romans believed in its supernatural and protective powers. In the Middle Ages, Topaz was used to invigorate the body and mind and was considered the most important amulet to ward off evil. The stories and legends surrounding Topaz are rich in fantasy. This has increased the curiosity for the gem and affirmed its attractiveness in the jewelry market. Topaz jewelry is a must in any collection.
Today we know the chemical structure of Topaz and we know that it is a precious stone of great rarity. To carve and facet it is a challenge due to its susceptibility to fracture. At the same time it is extremely hard - 8 on the Mohs scale - and therefore perfect for making Topaz jewelry. Another important feature is that Topaz can be found in nature in large specimens without too many impurities. This makes it possible to create Topaz jewelry with a strong presence, several carats in size with impeccable clarity. That is why all great jewelers use Topaz in their collections. Juwelo, with its young and dynamic team of designers, has created a wide range of Topaz jewelry in all shapes and sizes.
The most famous Topaz is undoubtedly the "Bragança" Topaz, which is set in the Portuguese crown. For centuries it was believed to be a Diamond - "the largest Diamond in the world" - but with scientific advancements, it was revealed to be a White Topaz. Although it is no longer considered a Diamond does not make it any less beautiful!
Imperial Topazes crown the Virgin of Atocha. The history of the Imperial Topaz crown of this Virgin stands out when in 1852, Queen Isabel II visited the Church of the Virgin of Atocha in Madrid carrying her firstborn to get the graces of the Virgin. The priest Martin Merino attacked her with a dagger. The Queen miraculously saved her daughter´s life and in gratitude decided to bequeath all the jewels she had been wearing that day to the Virgin, which included a significant number of large and beautiful Imperial Topazes of Brazil.
The Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. exhibits roughly cut Topazes with thousands of carats each. It also exhibits the world's largest faceted yellow Topaz, weighing a whopping 22,892.50 carats.
