Honey yellow. Fiery orange. Cyclamen pink. Icy blue. In warm or cool tones, topaz is a lustrous and brilliant gem. The different colors of topaz each have their own unique subtleties. Imperial colors, blue colors and yellow colors must be evaluated according to their own criteria.
Red is one of the most sought-after topaz colors, it is also very rare and represents less than one-half of 1 percent of facet-grade material found. Topaz can also be found in stunning shades of yellow, orange, pink , and blue.
Faceted blue topaz is almost always free of eye visible inclusions. Other more rare colors like imperial and pink may show inclusions more often and still be valuable due to the color’s rarity.
Topaz is cut in a wide variety of shapes and cutting styles. Production includes all the standard gem shapes such as ovals, pears, rounds, emerald cuts, cushion cuts, triangle cuts, and marquise shapes, as well as designer-inspired fantasy shapes.
Extreme pressure or sharp temperature changes might cause topaz to break. Warm soapy water is always safe and the recommended method for cleaning your Topaz Jewelry.
