Diamonds are not the only expensive gemstones. In fact, some gemstones can be more expensive and elegant. The Black Opal found in Australia costs as much as $2,355 per carat, while an Alexandrite discovered in the Ural Mountains has a price tag of $12,000 per carat. So when thinking of luxury jewelry, other gemstones can offer you a more varied choice. The Aaron Basha Topaz Evil Eye is one. It features a mesmerizing center eye swimming in the middle of blue topaz and set in 18k gold. It is accented by diamonds, which in this case become a backdrop rather than the star. The Aaron Basha Topaz Evil Eye can be set as an earring, a necklace pendant, a bracelet accent and a ring solitaire.
Aaron Basha is available at Shreve & Co. in Portland, Oregon.
