December Birthstone Spotlight: Blue Topaz
Blue topaz is the hardest of the silicate minerals and its name comes from the Sanskrit word for fire. Pure topaz is colorless, so the blue hue is achieved by heating the stone. Ancient civilizations believed this gem contained cooling properties, and it was often used for its supposed healing powers. Today, the blue topaz is considered to be symbolic of love and fidelity.
This month’s featured birthstone jewelry piece is from the King Jewelers collection, a blue topaz and pave diamond cocktail ring. It features a cabochon blue topaz surrounded by pave blue sapphires and white diamonds.
