The name "topaz" is usually derived from the Greek, and was not really known before the classical era. Pure topaz is colorless and transparent but is usually tinted by impurities; typical topaz is wine, yellow, pale gray, reddish-orange, or blue brown. Blue topaz is the December birthstone, state gemstone of Texas, as well as the gemstone to give for the fourth wedding anniversary.
Topaz is one of the most affordable natural gemstones, but there's nothing common in topaz jewelry. The most desirable color is pink topaz - material that usually is yellow but then heat treated to give high quality and high value. The step cut is traditionally used because it displays color the best. Find the finest selection of our designer Topaz jewelry below.
