My love affair with gemstones started a long time ago. The first ones I bought myself were garnets, set in a silver ring that, thirty years later, I still wear. Then I discovered topaz. The gentle blue and incredible luster caught my eye and claimed a piece of my heart.
Now, in 2020, at the start of November, of which topaz is the birthstone, it got me thinking. Why are we drawn to topaz? It is, after all, the bestselling semi-precious gemstone in our shop, irrespective if it is set in gold or silver.
We usually have them available in blue and with the ups and downs of this difficult year it is not surprising that many people seem to be instinctively drawn to this colours’ calming properties. It can be Sky blue which looks a lot like aquamarine, Swiss blue, a deeper, more intense shade or London blue, which has a tinge of grey but it always looks good.
Crystal experts say that topaz is a stone of love and good fortune that is able to alleviate doubt and uncertainty. Could this be why we have seen more topaz jewellery sold than any other gemstone? Even if it is, that is not the only reason you should consider topaz. It is a durable stone. Coming in at 8 on Moh’s scale of hardness, it will wear well for generations.
Topaz is also available in pink, yellow, green or brown and even silver. Whatever your preference, we are sure to have one that will strengthen your love affair with topaz.
