Gem of the Month — December

Blue is the color of communication and self- expression. The clear, voluptuous color of Blue Topaz certainly speaks for itself. From pure pastel blue of an Alpine glacier...to the glow of the midsummer sky...to the aquatic hue of the deepest ocean, refreshing Blue Topaz a breath of fresh air to contemporary jewelry designs.

The Ancients prized Topaz as a stone of devine majesty. It was believed to dispel enchantments, detect poisons - even render the wearer invisible at will.

Frequently used to celebrate December birthdays and the 4th wedding anniversary, Blue Topaz is usually found in Brazil, Nigeria, Australia, Myanmar, Mexico, Nambia, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.
