This stone comes in a lovely range of blues from light to dark. In our collections we favor Sky and London blue. While Sky is deliciously light and fresh, London’s inky tones are deep and mystical. Like bright summer skies, glistening oceans or ice-covered landscapes, shades of blue topaz are truly serene. Mirroring the blues of nature, they calm the senses and instill a deep sense of joy.
Our gemstone team sources blue topaz from high caliber suppliers. As the gem gets its color from radiation and heat treatment, it is crucial to buy from trusted partners who conduct this process with the utmost care. This is especially true for the London blue variety. Its stunningly deep color derives from a meticulous treatment which changes how the crystals absorb the light.
