DEEP SEA BLUE TOPAZTM
Legend has it that topaz dispels all enchantment and helps improve eyesight. In ancient times, it was believed that topaz had the power to increase strength and make the wearer invisible. Today, the gem is favored for its exquisite blue hue which can range from cool icy blues as featured in Le Vian®'s Ocean Blue TopazTM to the deep, Mediterranean blues in Deep Sea Blue TopazTM.
An interesting characteristic of topaz is its ability to build up a distinct electrical charge from heat or friction that it will retain for several hours. Blue is the most popular topaz color which is obtained through a diffusion treatment that is permanent.
Blackberry Diamonds® add a touch of chic drama to fine jewelry by providing a touch of mysterious sparkle with day into evening fashion forward looks. The lore of this midnight flavored diamond includes Italians, who, in medieval times, believed that black diamonds helped married couples revive their relationships. The “Black Orlov” diamond, the most famous black diamond, was reputed to give happiness and good fortune to anyone who touched it. Other famous black diamonds include “Sergio,” the largest diamond ever found, discovered in Brazil and weighing over three thousand carats!

The journey of a diamond in the rough to the sparkling diamond design you love is a fascinating story, one that began billions of years ago, deep within the earth where a diamond has formed under extreme heat and pressure. Its ascent from its natural home is forced by nature or man where it is then cleaved, cut and polished revealing its natural beauty. Diamonds are the hardest material on earth and the only gem that is composed of only one element, carbon.
Vanilla Diamonds® are specially selected to adorn Le Vian® designs – from breathtaking one-of-a-kind red carpet favored designs in Vanilla Gold® to the trendsetting combination of Strawberry ‘N Vanilla® featuring the blushing hue of Strawberry Gold® topped with Vanilla Diamonds®.
