A Topaz for Every Taste

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

Being the November birthstone, Topaz has enjoyed long-time recognition and demand. When the inexpensive irradiated blue colored Topaz was introduced in to the market, it allowed the masses to own very affordable pieces of jewelry with Topaz. Since then other treatments such as coatings have allowed more variety of colors available for low priced commercial pieces of jewelry.

Precious Topaz has always remained strong in its own category, consistently known as being a “gem”. Under the heading of Precious Topaz, you will find colors ranging from a light yellow to gold, to golden peach. The intense peachy pinks or sherry colors are given an increased distinction and acknowledgement of their rarity by being called Imperial Topaz. Super rare and expensive, they occasionally exhibit shades of strawberry red. Pink Topaz are not as common and come in soft pastel shades up to intense medium pinks in the super fine materials. Price per carat is directly based on the shade of color of the Topaz and how much peach and pink it exhibits.

Though the fine gems are wonderful to admire and marvel at, there truly is a range of price on this gem, making them extremely accessible to all your customers regardless of budget. And yes, there always is blue Topaz as a last resort for price.
