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.

These visits, when he was between 9 to 12 years old, broke him in to the world’s premiere class. The original House of Basha was started by Aaron Basha’s mother. It was in the early twentieth century when they put up shop in Berkeley Square in London. It was in the 1990’s when they moved Manhattan for good. During Aaron Basha’s career, he too enjoyed the patronage of royals.

While creating jewelry with briolette diamonds, diamonds that have their entire surface cut with triangle facets, Aaron Basha came about with creating charms. The influence of these stones led Aaron to create the iconic pieces that we see today and discerning tastes appreciate. It is this mix of fun and elegance that led to the success that is Aaron Basha, the Godfather of charms. For Aaron Basha charms, visit Shreve & Co. – authorized dealer for Aaron Basha.
