Sorry for the photo overload. It’s a beautiful Spring day here in Mississippi and we are all really enjoying it. I received this pendant yesterday from the nicest ebay seller....handwritten “thank you” note and all. The stone is supposed to be a blue topaz and it is a “married piece.” Two sections of old jewelry put together. It’s 14kt and 9kt yellow and rose gold 7ADAFE4B-D06E-4B18-9A11-595077F707A7.jpeg DF5F620B-7714-4769-89C6-344D978D35F4.jpeg 13548E4C-E8C4-45DC-9B92-B03F69892C36.jpeg F1927890-D01D-4CFA-8EF8-90E77BCB0E75.jpeg and I think it’s absolutely beautiful. The blue is outstanding. I think one of the best parts was the original listing was $125 and she made me an offer of $85. I really couldn’t refuse. 92780B6D-C822-4DBD-B3C5-8E2F8B01EAF6.jpeg D50F7205-C7E4-442D-811C-5BC569749769.jpeg

It is pretty, isn't it? People dismiss blue topaz because white topaz is so plentiful and it is treated to be blue, but I love it and have lots pf pendants, rings and earrings. It goes with everything...pretty in summer and winter.

very nice combo to make a pretty necklace...I can see this looking great on a neck wire of some sort, or a blue satin ribbon. Great find, and a great price!!

I love it! Could it be blue zircon?

You know what? That was my first thought when I saw it because I have never seen a blue topaz that exact color. Now it’s time for some research.

I love the cool blues like that. And yes, it’s pretty in any season.

That blue is mesmerizing! And I love the long dangle. There's a specific name for a Y-shape style necklace or long pendant like this, right? Anyways, it looks beautiful and the price just makes it even more amazing. Plus, it sounds like you'll get a lot of wear out of it. What a great find!

It's easy to tell the difference between zircon and topaz. Look at the facets. If they show double refraction then it's ziron.

I just call it a drop pendant. That’s it, all I got..... I bet there is a name for it somewhere.

Thank you for that helpful hint...I looked through my loupe and yes ma’am, I see double refraction. Then I drew a line on a white piece of paper, set the stone over it and saw two lines with my loupe. So it may not be a blue topaz after all???? If not, that’s ok. It’s just one of the very prettiest blue stones I have ever seen.

It’s so pretty and well done. I also on first look thought it looked like a blue zircon.
