Not the rather unforgiving Dulux paint colour, but that crowd-pleasing favourite White Topaz. Just listed I have rose cut pears and ovals, with – due to popular request – flat backs. White topaz is such an excellent choice for a white stone – easy to obtain in clean quality with really excellent brilliance. It’s great value for money, so you can go really large with your stones, and who can resist a big chunk of glittering clear rock? It’s also just a little bit more gemmy than, say, rock crystal, helping to maintain the value of your catalogue. Here I have 8x10mm and 10x12mm pears, and an 8x10mm oval, all good, large sizes to make show-stopping pieces, all of fantastic, eye-clean clarity. As stated, these are all cut with flat backs, so will set neatly in a bezel setting. Prices start from $11 for the 8x10mm faceted pear; click here to shop all white topaz.
