Prior to the 1950s, golden yellow to peachy orange hues accounted for virtually all Topaz which had been discovered thus far. Today this is known as Precious Topaz. The confusion between Citrine, Smoky quartz and Topaz was heightened by the Brazilian word “Topazio”, which means yellow gem. Blue was once amongst the rarest colour to be seen in Topaz. Today, through colour treatments being refined, there are three stunning Blue Topaz colours: Sky Blue, Swiss Blue and London Blue.
Regardless of design or setting, London Blue Topaz flaunts vivid colours of intense dusty blue with inky undercurrents. Whether suspended from your ears, arranged on your neck, or wrapped around your finger this denim-toned Topaz constantly dazzles.
London Blue Topaz is by nature a romantic gem and often figures in love stories as well as for honeymoon escapades. This gem signifies beauty, uniqueness, affluence and reveals a sense of endurance.
Until the late 1800s, Diamonds were among the rarest gemstones on the planet, and due to their incredible hardness, coupled with the belief that cutting them would reduce their magical powers, were often not faceted. In fact, it was not until the 1400s that the first rudimentary facets were being applied to the gem. Then, in the late 1800s, everything began to change with the discovery of Diamonds in South Africa. Through huge marketing campaigns by the owners of these new deposits, the new kid on the gem block went from being fairly unknown, to unquestionably the global leader within half a century.
Jewellery is best stored individually in a soft pouch or a box with compartments away from sunlight and where harder gemstones can’t scratch softer ones.
