November’s birthstone is topaz. More commonly golden topaz but blue topaz too. The Zodiac symbol is the scorpion - the astrological image of metamorphosis. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the planet of death and rebirth or transformational energy, also symbolised by the pheonix. Scorpios make formiddable enemies but wonderful and nurturing friends and partners.
Wearing your blue topaz pendant will help you to relax and bring harmony and sweetness to your relationships. The scorpion’s tail is symbolically depicted in this pendant by the squared off sections of gold surrounding the large faceted, blue topaz stone. The inverted triangle is an ancient celtic symbol of water, and scorpio is a water sign, hence the four triangles around the rim of your pendant, along with four c’z’s.
The pendant is 20x20mm (23mm top to bottom including triangles) with a 10x8mm blue topaz and 2mm cz’s. Both pendant and chain are made from brass with one micron of 18k gold vermeil, so the gold should last well. The reason some of our pieces are made of brass, not silver, is that should the vermeil begin to wear off, it will not show nearly so much on brass thus giving your piece a long life of wear.
The fine chain is .925 sterling silver with one micron of 18k gold vermeil and is 18 inches long including two inches of extension chain.
