London Blue Topaz Necklace on Multi-Strand Delicate Gold Filled Chain

I threaded a lovely, unblemished London Blue Topaz trillian-cut gemstone onto extra fine gauge 14k gold filled wire and set it in the center of three strands of ultra-delicate flat link (approximately 1.4 x 1 mm) 14k gold filled chain. The chain is finished with a simple, 14k gold filled lobster claw clasp set between two petite 14k gold filled accent beads.

This is a beautiful yet understated necklace that's versatile enough for everyday wear.

Perfect for a December birthday!

The total length of this necklace is approximately 18 inches.

Also available with a single strand:

I use the highest quality filled gold for Gewgaws & Gimcracks jewelry. It has a higher gold content than alternatives like plated gold and vermeil.

Gold plating uses an electrostatic process to deposit a thin layer of gold over base metal like brass or copper. Because the gold layer is so thin, it is easily scratched and tends to tarnish quickly, so I don't recommend it for everyday wear (especially if you have metal allergies or sensitivities).

Gold vermeil is a more expensive version of gold plating; it involves a thin layer of gold over sterling silver. As with plated gold, vermeil is easily scratched and abraded, and tends to tarnish with regular wear.

Filled gold (also called ‘gold overlay’ or ‘rolled gold plated’) involves multiple layers of gold that are bonded mechanically to a base metal. It is stronger and more tarnish resistant than vermeil or plated gold. If you don't want to pay for solid gold, gold filled jewelry is the best alternative for pieces you wear often.

ABOUT LONDON BLUE TOPAZ

London Blue topaz has a steely, grayish, and deep blue color. This is the darkest blue topaz variety available in jewelry. It is a medium to dark grayish blue, sometimes described as steely or inky.

It it is believed to provide calmness, balance emotions, reduce nervous fatigue, exhaustion and stress, bring leadership abilities, and to enhance psychic knowledge, spiritual growth, and insight.

Because the composition of London Blue topaz repels water but attracts oils, London Blue topaz needs regular cleaning to show off its brilliance and luster. London Blue topaz jewelry should not be cleaned by ultrasonic methods, which can crack the gemstones. Avoid harsh and abrasive cleansing agents like alcohol, acetone and ammonia as they can damage the surface of London Blue topaz.

Blue topaz can be found in both lighter and darker tones, usually known as Sky Blue, Swiss Blue, and London Blue. As in the case of other blue gems, the more saturated blues tend to have a higher value. In topaz it is the London Blue that usually regarded as the most valuable.

Frequently asked questions about gewgaws

Most fine and sterling silver will eventually oxidize, or tarnish, with exposure to air and moisture. To minimize this, keep your jewelry dry and clean, away from lotions, perfumes, and other chemicals. To remove tarnish and restore a mirror-like shine, I love jewelry polishing cloths (like the Sunshine Cloth). However, you should never polish pieces unless you're certain they're solid silver; using a polishing cloth can remove fine layers of precious metal deposits, so never use them on plated metals or vermeil.
Gold plating uses an electrostatic process to deposit a thin layer of gold over base metal (like brass or copper). Because the gold layer is so thin, it is easily scratched and tends to tarnish quickly, so I don't recommend it for everyday wear (especially if you have metal allergies or sensitivities).

Gold vermeil is just a more expensive version of gold plating; it involves a thin layer of gold over sterling silver. As with plated gold, vermeil is easily scratched and abraded, and tends to tarnish with regular wear

I use the highest quality 14k filled gold for Gewgaws & Gimcracks jewelry. Although it is not solid gold, it has a higher gold content than plated gold or vermeil, and is much more durable and long-lasting.
Pearls are porous and need special care. They never should be tossed on top of or next to other gems in a jewelry box; store them in a soft jewelry pouch.

If a pearl necklace is regularly worn, some of the pearls will constantly be in close contact with skin, and may gradually absorb acid that will slowly damage the pearl. Over time, a pearl may not only lose its luster, but change in shape. You can slow this process by wiping the pearls with a soft cloth or chamois after wearing them, and keeping them away from abrasive materials, perfume, hairspray, and acidic liquids such as vinegar or lemon juice. I recommend re-stringing pearl necklaces yearly if you wear them frequently.
Most of the gold components used in Gewgaws & Gimcracks designs are 14k filled gold. Although filled gold has a much higher gold content than electroplated or vermeil pieces, the underlying base metal can tarnish over time, especially with exposure to the elements and constant wear. I do not recommend sleeping, showering, or exercising in 14k filled gold jewelry, as this can hasten the process. If you like to leave your jewelry on at all times, I highly recommend investing in solid gold pieces.
Please be aware that wire-wrapped items--especially if they incorporate fine gauge wire--can be delicate. Most metals get stronger and more rigid as they are worked, but too much bending, hammering, or tension will cause precious metals to become brittle and fragile. Treat wire-wrapped jewelry as gently as possible to maximize its life. I recommend removing wire-wrapped jewelry for sleeping, bathing, and exercising.
