A blue topaz ring is an excellent choice for those seeking to add a bit of vibrant color to their jewelry collection. It is also a beautiful alternative to more traditional gemstone choices, like diamonds, when it comes to engagement rings. And, because it is a relatively affordable option, it’s an excellent choice for anyone looking to make a statement on their big day!
Like many gemstones, blue topaz is treated to produce its beautiful color. It is often heated to help it achieve its full range of blue shades. In fact, most blue topaz available today is heat-treated. It is important to understand this process when choosing a blue topaz ring, so you know what to expect from your purchase.
This beautiful gemstone is quite durable. In fact, it is one of the hardest gemstones on earth. However, a hard blow or extreme temperature changes can cause it to break. This means that blue topaz ring designs should include protective settings and should be handled carefully.
Round cut blue topaz rings are a popular choice because they showcase the beauty of the stone by showing off its facets. Oval and princess cuts are slightly less common but still offer a beautiful look for your ring. Emerald and square cut rings are also an option for those who love a more contemporary design.
Because of its resemblance to the sky, some people choose to wear a blue topaz ring to encourage peace and serenity in their lives. Others choose this stone because of its association with love and affection. Many crystal healers believe that a blue topaz ring can help you think through difficult situations and calm your emotions.
When shopping for a blue topaz ring, look for high clarity. While most blue topaz is free of flaws, it is important to find a piece with uniform color and good faceting pattern. The higher the clarity, the more beautiful your ring will be.
As with all of our gemstones, we recommend that you have your blue topaz ring pre-energized. This will ensure that it is ready for you to use when you need it. It is recommended that you wear the gemstone on the index finger, as this is where it will be most beneficial. It is also important to clean the ring periodically, using standard jewelry cleaner or warm water with soap.
